Annual Partnership for Professional Enquiry Seminar - An Enquiring Profession?

Date(s) Thursday 31 May 2007
Venue University of Stirling, Scotland
Organised by University of Stirling. Sponsored by ESCalate

Part of the CPD in Education seminars.

Notions of professional enquiry and the development of evidence-informed practice in knowledge-creating schools and networked professional communities are part of a beguiling rhetoric that underpins some policies at institutional and national level in education. What do these notions mean in practice? What are the implications of adopting enquiry and knowledge creation as activities that are central to the practice of educators? This seminar seeks to open up debate on these issues by exploring the following questions:

  1. What does enquiring in educational settings look like?
  2. What does it mean to be an enquiring practitioner?
  3. How do we make sense of professional knowledge creation?

The seminar will consist of a series of workshops designed around these three themes.

If you would like to attend we will send you out a detailed programme for the day and a booklet of short papers nearer to the event. There are a limited number of places available so we would be grateful if you would you contact Laura Newlands fairly promptly and she will acknowledge and confirm whether you have been booked in.
