The Critical Global Educator

25 September 2015, London

The purpose of this workshop will be to look at the concept of ‘The Critical Global Educator’, based on the doctoral research of Dr Maureen Ellis.

The objectives of the workshop will be to:

  • introduce Systemic Functional Linguistic analytical tools;
  • apply these insights to texts which you consider crucial to your own work, personal rationale and
    professional field;
  • develop a shared language as common ground, justifying personal values beyond individual ideology,
    culture and backgrounds.

DERC are hoping to keep costs to a minimum, at £40 per participant. This will include Saturday and Sunday morning and afternoon teas, and sandwich lunches.

They anticipate a total of about 15 participants, mainly from INGDOs and DECs in the UK and possibly some from Europe.

If you think you might attend, please send an expression of intent to Doug Bourn:
