I was lucky to have lecturers who reached out to me not only as academic mentors, but also as models of excellence and commitment.

This module provides a brief introduction to key issues in philosophy of education, exploring the link between our notion of the human person and how this influences the vision we have for education. Specific attention will be given to the theories and texts that underpin the vision and values of faith-based schools.
The content includes contemporary reflection on the purpose, goals and values of Catholic education in South Africa and explores some of the critical challenges educators face. Participants are encouraged to use educational theory as a tool for reflecting critically on their own vision and practice.
