    Organizers and workshop facilitators

    Associate Professor Guro Hansen Helskog & Associate Professor Michael Noah Weiss from P3 - Research Group for Pedagogical Philosophical Practice / Department of Pedagogy, USN

In this workshop we explore the relationship between wisdom, education and the art of living. We will do this through a philosophical process set up in line with the Dialogos approach to pedagogical philosophical practice (PPP).

The workshop addresses professionals such as teachers, educators, social workers, and philosophical practitioners alike. No philosophical pre-knowledge is required - we will take our point of departure in the real life situation of participants.
