Researching character: practical approaches and applications.


The session will briefly examine how and why character education has acquired a prominent position in the national dialogue. It will outline why character education can be a broadly encompassing term and schools could improve the wellbeing of students by fostering virtues and values amongst students and staff. The session will provide examples from our own context and describe how we have researched character education and how we hope to weave the various facets of CE more broadly across the curriculum and co-curriculum.

Across two days, over 250 sessions will take place at the Festival. A full timetable of sessions will be available from late May 2019. Until this point we will only be announcing the day(s) sessions will be taking place.
