Post Conference Workshop

The Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children (IAPC) will be hosting an Immersion Retreat on June 21-22, 2016 immediately following the 2016 NAACI conference.

This workshop will focus on the themes and methodologies traditionally associated with the regular, week-long seminar that has been held in Mendham, New Jersey since 1983, which provides a balance of theory and practice in the planning and facilitation of community of philosophical inquiry with children and teenagers. Participants will explore philosophical dimensions of experience together, and practice bringing out the philosophical issues in texts, in a dialogical setting; practice the facilitation of philosophical group discussion; have access to various tools for curriculum construction and assessment; and encounter community of inquiry pedagogy from both a theoretical and an applied perspective.

Register for the workshop and to pay for on-campus housing June 20 and/or 21st.
