Educational Theory and Philosophy


The aim of this special interest group is to foster and advance engagement with all aspects of educational philosophy and theory in the service of education and educational research. It endeavours to do so through robust conversations and dialogues of educational philosophy and theory. The ETAP SIG acknowledges that philosophical and theoretical work in education draws from, as much as it contributes to, educational practice and research in other disciplines.  This is particularly the case for allied fields such as curriculum theory, the politics of education, educational history, educational policy, higher education, research methodologies, and so on. Moreover, ETAP aims to gather researchers together in addressing significant and emerging educational questions and issues using the unique insights afforded by theory and philosophy.
