Public pedagogy investigates learning that happens beyond formal schooling and through disparate means, like public events, TV, cinema, the Internet, and social media. The aim of the workshop is to bring together epistemologists investigating the educative or, more often, miseducative role of social media in contemporary societies to make progress towards answering key questions and illuminating crucial problems.
This is the first of a series of two workshops focusing on the epistemology of education, co-organized by the Centre for Knowledge and Society (CEKAS) of the University of Aberdeen and the Cogito Epistemology Group of the University of Glasgow, under the aegis of the Epistemology of Education Network.
The first workshop will be hosted by the University of Aberdeen, and the second workshop will be hosted by the University of Glasgow next year.
This event is financially supported by the Scots Philosophical Association (SPA).
