For the first time this summer, there will be a teaching and learning seminar for high school teachers at the American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) Conference. The seminar will be funded by the Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization (PLATO), the American Philosophical Association (APA), and AAPT.
The AAPT Conference is a well-regarded biennial family-friendly event that brings together philosophy teachers around the world, emphasizing workshops that are practical and interactive and cover a wide range of subjects related to teaching.
For a number of years the conference has included a highly popular teaching and learning seminar for graduate students, and the seminar for high school teachers will have a similar format. Seminar participants will explore issues and experiment with approaches aimed at developing and improving high school philosophy teaching.
