Panel discussion: On Knowledge;

5:00pm, 19 November, 2018 / Freeman’s Bay School, 95 Wellington St, Auckland 1011
You are invited to a special panel discussion to celebrate the launch of The Education Hub’s research report, On Knowledge; Towards understandings of the place(s), space(s) and role(s) of knowledge in and for education. The report is a response to the somewhat contested place knowledge currently holds in schools and education. It explores the various conceptualisations and roles of knowledge in education through a series of seven short chapters written by guest contributors on topics including: philosophical approaches to knowledge; knowledge and the curriculum; knowledge in early childhood education; Māori knowledge in education; and open knowledge. Professor Graeme Aitken will moderate the discussion with panelists Professor John Morgan (University of Auckland), Claire Amos (Principal Albany Senior High School), and Hemi Dale (University of Auckland). Time: 5pm for refreshments; 5.40pm panel discussion will commence

We currently offer 4 types of events:

Seminars: researchers discuss their research specifically for a teacher audience, offering rich insights together with practical ideas and strategies

Educator Q+As: for teachers, by teachers. Expert teachers share how they are applying particular research in their teaching practice and offer practical strategies and resources

Learning circles: provide teachers with the opportunity to delve deeper into the research, and to discuss particular research findings and reports with each other, and guided by an expert facilitator

Report launches: we aim to release two research reports each year. Each release will have an accompanying event, which will delve into the main themes and implications of the report.
