The University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa’s Uehiro Academy for Philosophy and Ethics in Education invites you to register for the p4cHI Virtual Summer Symposium. This year’s Symposium will introduce participants to both the theory and practice of p4cHI through hands-on engagement in an “intellectually safe” philosophical community of inquiry. Participants will gain a better understanding of the Four Pillars of p4c Hawai‘i (Community, Inquiry, Philosophy, and Reflection) and the p4c Hawai‘i Philosophers’ Pedagogy. This three-week educative experience will help participants apply the p4c Hawai‘i approach to teaching and learning to their own contexts and goals.

Also included in the Symposium is the following 2-hour online talk, which is open to the public:

Exploring the Relevance of Progressive Philosophy in Present Times: Possible Impacts on Individuals, Schools, and Society Today
Date: Wednesday, July 7, 2021
Time: 2:00-4:00 PM Hawaii /5:00-7:00 PM Pacific / 7:00-9:00 PM Central / 8:00-10:00 PM Eastern
Venue: Online Via Zoom
Cost: $15 per person

At this event we bring together a panel of diverse thought leaders who will explore the relevance of progressive philosophy in present times. Located at the intersecting projects of philosophy, education, and democracy–progressive philosophy is an emergent term born out of the late 19th Century progressive education movement and the ongoing progressive impulse in education, which aims to “develop self-actualizing individuals who can take charge of their own lives and participate fully in the creation of a greater public good” (Bruce & Eryman, 2015, p. 1). As we collectively make our way through the COVID-19 pandemic recovery period, we want to wonder together, how might a progressive philosophy support individuals, schools, and society at-large in creating lasting positive change.

To further this inquiry, Theresa Squires Collins of the Progressive Education Network and The Francis W. Parker School in Chicago, Dr. Masato Ishida of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Department of Philosophy, Chris McNutt of the Human Restoration Project, and Dr. Manulani Aluli Meyer of the University of Hawaii – West Oahu will serve as panelists. Together with Facilitators Dr. Amber Strong Makaiau and Dr. Chad Miller of the University of Hawaii at Manoa Uehiro Academy for Philosophy and Ethics in Education, they will share and engage in dialogue around the following questions:
– What is your “work,” and what do you love about it? What are your connections with philosophy, education, and schooling?
– What do you think about the term, progressive philosophy? What does it mean to you?
– What do you see as the biggest challenges in today’s world? What might be the value of progressive philosophy in addressing these challenges?
– What might be the possible impact of progressive philosophy on individuals, schools, and society in present times?
– Are there any connections between progressive philosophy and any of your current projects?
– What new questions have emerged as a result of our time together?

A collaboration between the Hanahau’oli School Professional Development Center, University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Uehiro Academy for Philosophy and Ethics in Education, and the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa College of Education Progressive Philosophy Pedagogy MEd Interdisciplinary Education, Curriculum Studies Program — this event aims to build our collective capacity for creating a better future society for today’s children.
