Firstly, there is the aim of attaining the highest grades as the primary pursuit of an education. Peters, R. (ed.), 1973, The Philosophy of Education, Oxford: Oxford University Press. You will have an initiation into the analytic method of philosophising and also to the central questions from the history of philosophy. Plato’s educational philosophy was grounded in his vision of the ideal Republic , wherein the individual was best served by being subordinated to a just society. We will also address the relevance of ideas and debates within these areas for current issues in educational policy and practice. Include specific examples of your teaching strategies, assignments, discussions, etc. You may schedule a one-on-one appointment for help in preparing your Teaching Philosophy Statement.
