Democracy and Education
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of John Dewey’s famous work Democracy and Education. This conference aims to reflect on the legacy and significance of Dewey’s thinking for 21st century education, but also to consider the more general issue of the relationship between democracy and education in current times.
Keynote speakers include Richard Pring, and Walter Humes. Based at our attractive Ayr campus, on the scenic west coast of Scotland, this conference promises to be a stimulating and enjoyable event.
