“Education in Crisis”
Department of Theology & Religious Studies, Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, in collaboration with the Irish Section of the ESCT; May 2015, 21-22
This Conference will explore resources both inside and outside the Christian tradition that can help in countering what are perceived as increasingly instrumentalist and politicised educational systems dominated by short-term thinking. Marking the fiftieth anniversary of Gravissimum Educationis, and twenty-fifth anniversary of Ex CordeEcclesiae the 2015 McAuley Conference will consider the resources that exist within the Christian tradition to foster human growth and maturation, and to educate for the common good.
An emerging scholars’ colloquium will take place Thursday, May 21st, followed by the main conference.
