Speaker: Ronald Barnett, Emeritus Professor, University College London, IOE, UK

The philosophy of higher education was born in the early 1990s and has since taken off across the world.  However, there has been little reflection as to the nature of the field and some element of reflexivity is surely now timely. In this talk, Ronald Barnett shall try to identify some key concepts, hazard some suggestions as to the contours and boundaries of the field, and point to some challenges.

Speaker: Gloria Dall’Alba, Honorary Associate Professor, The University of Queensland, Australia

In research on learning to enter the professions, the significance of the perceiving, feeling, motile body is largely overlooked, especially outside teaching and teacher education. In this presentation, Gloria Dall’Alba explores what is entailed in learning to embody skilful performance by aspiring professionals. The recently prominent, highly technologised field of biotechnology is the empirical context for this exploration. Inquiring into learning with and through the lived body, as students endeavour to enact the practice of biotechnology, highlights features of the bodily grounds of learning. Based on this inquiry, some theoretical and educational implications can be identified for understanding and promoting learning for the professions.

Speaker: Herdis Toft, Associate Professor, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark 

Play processes support democracy and Bildung, that is, formation/self-cultivation and human growth in social communities. A main purpose for (Danish) day care and educational institutions is education for democracy. This aim can be fulfilled through awareness of how democracy and Bildung are closely connected to forms of play representing aesthetical matters, that must not be neglected in education.
