I'm a philosopher working in schools, universities, communities and businesses. In 2008 I established Thinking Space to promote philosophical dialogue and enquiry.
I work wherever there's a need for creative and critical thinking and in the past this has taken me everywhere from nursery schools to medical schools and has led to collaborations with educational institutions, businesses, arts organisations and charities.
I'm a SAPERE trainer and associate of the Philosophy Foundation - both leading educational charities. I practice philosophical enquiry, train others to do the same and speak on the subject nationally and internationally.
I'm a Teaching Fellow at The University of Leeds where I run a course that introduces philosophy students to philosophical enquiry in schools - the first of its kind at Leeds.
When I can squeeze it in, I continue to study for a PhD in Philosophy of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London.
A resource to prompt the discussion of happiness.
This is a provocation to prompt children to make arguments revealing the criteria they believe should distinguish pets from treasured objects or other animals. The same strategy could be used for other concepts.
This is a thought-provoking resource that will prompt questions about bravery, fear, cowardice, duty, conscience, condemnation and conformity.
With this resource, you and your pupils can raise questions about cheating, fairness and the keeping of secrets. What would they do to gain an advantage in a competition?
Friends Forever is invitation to enquire into the concept of friendship. It starts with a thought experiment but extends beyond that into more general areas.
