Education and the arts

THINKERS WHO INFORM AND PROVOKE DEBATE

14 August 2014

The Sydney School of Education and Social Work is delighted to invite you to a the first event in a new Education and the arts series: "Thinkers who inform and provoke debate".

Honorary Professor Peter Freebody, an internationally recognised literacy researcher and educator, and Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, will present the inaugural event: Schooling and the arts, from a literacy researcher’s perspective.

In this presentation Peter will explore some ideas about the relationship between language, literacy, and literature, with particular attention to teaching and learning in school classrooms. In some school systems ‘literacy’ has become a concept that is used, in its most minimalist sense, as a quick and convenient response to new, complex cultural and economic conditions in which both education systems and individual educators need to work. Using examples from poetry – from the ancient to the digitally generated – Peter will illustrate an alternative, expanded view of the arts-literacy relationship and outline a framework for enriching pedagogy and curriculum.

Introduced by Professor Robyn Ewing.

Please join us for refreshments from 5.30pm.
