The Thoughtful Classroom Conference

The Big Questions program was the inspiration for a conference, co-presented by the University of Melbourne and the Federation of Australasian Philosophy in Schools Associations: The Thoughtful Classroom: Teaching to Overcome Educational Disadvantage, held on 2 June 2012 at the University of Melbourne. It was designed to support teachers and philosophers who are interested in using thoughtful dialogue and inquiry to engage all students in learning, including students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. The conference featured presentations and workshops by eminent international and interstate guests Professor Tom Wartenburg, Dr Ron Ritchhart, Professor Lynne Hinton, Associate Professor Phil Cam. Their conference papers and presentations may be downloaded from the FAPSA website.
