Philosophy for Children (P4C)
Philosophy of education
Started teaching career in English Primary schools in my late twenties. Journeyed into Initial Teacher Education (PGCE English) before developing specialised interest in Education Studies. I still act as personal tutor to Bath Spa Teachers and teach across the BSU Education Studies programme.
My doctoral thesis is located in the philosophy of education and examines the concept of `educational judgement' in the context of P4C. The methodology is informed by Foucault's genealogy.
