Online Philosophy for Children course


The Institute for the Advancement for Philosophy for Children, in Montclair, New Jersey, is offering a fall online class on "Teaching Children Philosophical Thinking." Here is the description of the class:

This innovative course prepares teachers and philosophers to facilitate philosophical dialogue with children and adolescents, in classroom settings and elsewhere. The course is suitable for both beginners and those who wish to build on their current practice and extend their knowledge. Participants will study the theory of Philosophy for Children, engage in an online philosophical community of inquiry, and experiment with Philosophy for Children practices in their own classrooms.

I do not have any experience with the IAPC online courses, but I have attended IAPC seminars in New Jersey in the past and they were marvelous and very inspiring.

More information about the online course can be found on the IAPC website at: http://frontpage.montclair.edu/iapc/OnlineCourseFlyer.htm
