Professional development opportunity
Are you interested in democratic traditions of education? Do you want to learn more about the pedagagical approaches used in University of Minnesota courses Family Lives Worth Living (CI 5900-5) and Philosophy Camp (Phil 4326–Lives Worth Living: Questions of Self, Vocation, and Community)? Are you curious about the learning and growth that students experience in these courses? Would you like to experience these courses first-hand without being registered as a student?
Educators, artists, college and university staff, human development professionals, and retirees—all who share an interest in the pedagogical approach used in these courses —are welcome to apply to attend the course for one week as resident fellows. Resident fellows involve themselves in the daily life of the course by engaging with students in all course activities and participating in instructional staff meetings. Resident fellows also have time to enjoy the peaceful country and work on their own projects. In past years, Philosophy Camp, has hosted fellows from as far away as Mexico, from small colleges and the University of Minnesota, as well as individuals from the local community.
Residencies for fellows are limited to two per week (Sunday to Saturday) as scheduled below:
Philosophy Camp: May 20–26, May27–June 2, June 3–9, June 10–16, 2007
Family Lives Worth Living: July 8–14, July 15–22, July 22–28, 2007
