Manage episode 276749667 series 2368592
Today we have a second chat with Dr Brad Kershner that builds on the strands from our first conversation back in episode 55.
We dig deeper into the ways that we can create a developmentally minded school in both culture and practice. We also talk about the kinds of relationships that we want to nurture and ask how we can best embody our broad and complex human values in a world where education is often reduced to workplace preparation.
Brad is a school leader and educational theorist. He is currently the head of the Early School at Carolina Friends School in Durham North Carolina. He has an MA in the philosophy of religions and a PhD in education.
Brad's book "Understanding Educational Complexity" is available for pre order now and will be published in December. You can pre-order here!
Before listening today, if you have not already checked out episode 50 of Reinventing Education, we suggest heading over there first to get an overview of many of the ideas that we talk about in today’s episode.
It might also be helpful to listen to that first discussion with Brad a few weeks back in episode 55.
