Howard Woodhouse Hybrid Book Launch

Thursday Oct 20 2022 7:00 pm, Saskatoon, Travel Alcove & YouTube

Join Howard Woodhouse for the hybrid launch (in-person + streaming) of Critical Reflections on Teacher Education: Why Future Teachers Need Educational Philosophy (Routledge). 

The launch will be hosted live in the Travel Alcove of McNally Robinson Booksellers, Saskatoon and also available as a simultaneous YouTube stream with live chat. The video will be available for viewing thereafter. Before arriving, please review details of how to attend physical events here at the store.

Critical Reflections on Teacher Education argues that educational philosophy can improve the quality of teacher education programs in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

The book documents the ways in which the market model of education propagated by governments and outside agencies hastens the decline of philosophy of education and turns teachers into technicians in hierarchical school systems. A grounding in educational philosophy, however, enables future teachers to make informed and qualified judgements defining their professional lives.

In a clear and accessible style, Howard Woodhouse uses a combination of reasoned argument and narrative to show that educational philosophy, together with Indigenous knowledge systems, forms the basis of a climate change education capable of educating future teachers and their students about the central issue of our time.

Howard Woodhouse is Professor Emeritus and Co-Director of the Saskatchewan Process Philosophy Research Unit in the Department of Educational Foundations at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. He is the author of more than eighty book chapters and articles in peer-reviewed journals, and his Selling Out: Academic Freedom and the Corporate Market was shortlisted for a Saskatchewan Book Award.
