Leeds Philosophy Exchange
Now in it’s third year, Leeds Philosophy Exchange’ is a project that enables undergraduate and postgraduate philosophy students to learn to plan and facilitate philosophical inquiry with primary school children and their teachers. Conceived as an exchange of knowledge and skills, this collaboration gives students, teachers, and children the autonomy and equity to direct their own philosophical enquires.
This year we will host the first Philosophy in Schools with Student conference at the University of Leeds organised by Liz, Grace and Carl.
Below you can see a film about the long term project. The film introduces the children, students, and teachers participating in Leeds Philosophy Exchange as they engage in community of philosophical inquiry for the first time. In it, we see early philosophical enquiry with year 5 children, undergraduate students training at the university and the large public enquiries that conclude the first phase of the project – events where pupils and students confidently take the reigns.
