Who attends the IAPC Summer Seminar?
The IAPC Summer Seminar in Philosophy for Children (P4C) brings together P4C specialists and faculty from Montclair State University with school teachers, professors, and other visiting scholars from around the world for seven days of intensive study, dialogue, and production. The annual session is designed to provide school teachers with professional development, to assist international scholars to bring P4C to their countries, and to provide all with experience in an academic community of inquiry. The workshops also grant P4C specialists a venue for reporting on their work and time and space to collaborate with others toward advancing their specific programs.
