About the Session

This session will look at a philosophy of teaching and learning that combines academic and personal growth to show how the two, when conceptualised as one, are mutually beneficial. It will discuss how this looks, and might look, in practice at pupil, teacher, and curriculum levels in school and how this philosophy can benefit all of those involved.

About Josh

While there, he worked to develop intercultural competency practices with an EU-wide network of schools on the Comenius Project and went on to promote functional English Language learning for refugees with the British Council’s Active Citizen programme.
