What does it mean to be a teacher in today’s world? And what makes a “good” one?
Judging by the wide disparities in contemporary teacher training and educational practices, it would seem that no one is quite sure.
Philosophical Perspectives on Teacher Education presents a series of ell-argued, thought-provoking essays that pointg to the ethical considerations that should be addressed when proposing and implementing teacher training and educational policies and practices.

Recent Additions to Academia - June 2015

Glenn Rikowski


I have added a number of papers to Academia in the last few weeks.

This part of a long-term process of inserting all of my papers on Academia, including many that have not been published elsewhere, occasional and unfinished papers, and also a few ‘lost’ papers: i.e. those that were thought to have been lost but turned up in a search of my loft in 2012.

In addition, I have a number of hand-written papers which I will type up and put on Academia, but that process will have to wait a while.

Recent additions of mine to Academia include:

Lifelong Learning for a Learning Democracy

What Can Schools Do? Engineering Employers and Education

Only Charybdis: The Learning Society Through Idealism

If you have any problems downloading these documents then just click onto the Green ‘Download’ button and its should work.

Best wishes
