Description

Epistemic insight is a curriculum and innovation research initiative transforming teacher programmes across England. Epistemic Insight (EI) means ' knowledge about knowledge' and in particular how knowledge is constructed within disciplines and how it interacts across them. This involves using techniques to examine disciplinary boundaries and encouraging students to think beyond their own subject. The epistemic insight initiative has a consortium of ITE providers who have worked with their students exploring real-world problems in an interdisciplinary way using epistemic insight tools and strategies. This enabled secondary ITE students of various specialisms to collaborate across disciplines enriching their learning and teaching practice. This workshop will present the work completed at St Mary’s University, The University of Leicester and Birmingham University. The lessons learnt and future directions will be studied. The workshop will give delegates an opportunity to explore resources used and discuss with consortium members how and why you may want to introduce you students to EI.

Presenters: Adrian Warhurst, University of Leicester, Rob Campbell, St Mary’s University and Dr Agnieszka J. Gordon Canterbury Christ Church University (Consortium Lead)
