Western Education’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Research in Curriculum as a Social Practice and Faculty of Education's Research Office present:
"What exactly is the point of theory?" by Professor Mark Priestley
Director, Stirling Network for Curriculum Studies
Professor Priestley works in the area of school curriculum; in particular looking at new models of national curriculum. He is interested in curriculum change and the professional work of teachers. Originally a History teacher in England and New Zealand, his work focuses on theorizing and thinking about curriculum in the age of 'the new curriculum'. As he noted, 'innovation is tricky when you are judged by the performance of your school'.
Bring your lunch. Coffee and cookies will be provided by the Research Office. Please RSVP to Tina Beynen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
