Here at Eidyn we aim at providing critical tools and research insights in personalised sessions to help teachers enhance their pedagogical skills.
For example, Dr Elinor Mason has successful run a session for nursery teachers to raise awareness on gender stereotypes. Through questions, discussions and presentation of relevant research data, the session helped practitioners to critically re-consider their activities with children, their approach to sensitive topics and their ways of dealing with complex situations
What nursery teachers say about the session:
"Very informative and in some ways an eye opener" "
Very engaging" "A very concise and informative talk"
"There was a good balance between videos, facts on gender related issues and interaction with the audience"
We aim at engaging more nursery teachers and schoolteachers in the future on a broad range of topics that Eidyn research covers
If you are interested in running a Philosophy for Educators session, please contact Dr Francesca Rossi (Eidyn Knowledge Exchange Officer) by emailing Francesca.Rossi@ed.ac.uk.
