SPPA, in collaboration with Treehouse Associates and Thempra, invite you to this free webinar. We would like your help in affirming Sir Ken’s ‘place’ within the Social Pedagogy discourse by contributing with the points where his key messages chime most clearly (and, of course, just as much the possibility that some may not).
This reflective session is open for everyone, you do not have to know much, or anything, about his work. However, if you do, we would love to hear what your favourite publication, idea, or even citation may be.
Please, join us!
Register in advance for this meeting:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
