Reconstructing democratic professionalism: a joint TELL/LSRN event
Being held on Friday 1st May, 2015
Hosted by the Education and Training Consortium and the University of Huddersfield
To tie in with the publication of Further Education and the Twelve Dancing Princesses, a new book documenting the state of the further education sector, this event seeks to create a “deliberative space” (Hillier, 2015, p.144) for teacher educators and practitioners to meet and respond to the question Rania Hafez’s (2015) has posed in the book: Can teachers working in further education reconstruct a model of democratic professionalism?
In pursuit of this, the morning has been set aside for a meeting of the Teacher Educators in Lifelong Learning network and will give an opportunity for members to talk about their research and hear about updates from the sector. There will be a launch of the book over lunch and then in the afternoon a LSRN event will offer you a chance to participate in two ‘dancing’ workshops and hear some of the stories from the Dancing Princesses.
