The first seminar considered the purpose of prison education and the theoretical pedagogies attributed to it. This seminar will explore ways to translate pedagogy and research into practice, as well as contemplate the role of research in strategic planning. The relationship between academic institutions and education providers and practitioners will provide an additional special focus, particularly why such a relationship is important and how these relationships can be developed.
Speakers at the seminar include:
- Professor Gabrielle Ivinson from Manchester Metropolitan University
