Intro to p4c Hawaii  

July 18-21th | 10am-12:30pm | $250

Participants will actively engage in 4 sessions that introduce the theory and practice of p4c Hawaii: 
  1. Building A Community of Inquiry In this session participants will begin the process of creating an intellectually safe community of inquiry by creating a virtual Community Ball. A hallmark strategy of p4cHI, the Community Ball is used for building relationships among participants, facilitating dialogue, and mediating turn taking during inquiry.
  2. Intellectual Safety In this session, participants will engage in activities used to introduce and develop the concept and understanding of Intellectual Safety.
  3. A Philosopher’s Pedagogy Participants will be introduced to the Philosopher’s Pedagogy, including the six commitments made by successful p4cHI practitioners. This session will include multimedia presentations and the opportunity for participants to engage in a large group Plain Vanilla philosophical inquiry.
  4. Plain Vanilla “Plain Vanilla” is the “flagship” philosophical inquiry framework of p4c Hawai‘i where participants engage with a stimulus, generate questions, vote on the question/wondering they want to pursue, using a set of assessment criteria to judge the progress of their community and inquiry.
