The Enquiring Classroom

The Enquiring Classroom

Welcome to the community of the The Enquiring Classroom Erasmus+ project.  

In the context of the global refugee crisis and the rise of populism, violent extremism and debates about integration, there is growing interest within the European educational context in developing strategies to support teachers and students in engaging in difficult ethical conversations about identity, beliefs, democratic values, diversity, belonging and violence, in order to establish a firm foundation for inclusive and tolerant schools.

The Enquiring Classroom project seeks to develop an innovative model of enquiry-based learning to enable teachers to use the tools of philosophical enquiry to engage in difficult ethical discussions and to support students' capabilities in this regard. The project also seeks to promote peer knowledge transfer and exchange of pedagogical content, strategies and practice to support students' lived encounters with philosophical and religious thought; to develop a skill-set for teachers that supports careful and sensitive facilitation of complex issues.
