Description

Making the invisible visible: Exploring teachers’ lives

Researchmeet, Maynooth University

Froebel Department of Primary and Early Childhood Education

9th March 2019

Guest Speaker: Dr Mark Rowe

Medical Doctor, Author, and Expert in Positive Health & Lifestyle Medicine

Being a teacher means being able to establish human relations with the people being taught. Teaching involves care and emotions as much as pure reasoning. Caring about children as a teaching philosophy and caring for children as enactment of that philosophy are valued descriptions of primary teaching. Whilst, care is one of the ethical pillars underpinning the Teaching Council’s Code of Professional Conduct, when teaching is understood as an act of caring, men’s work as caregivers is often problematic.

This Researchmeet seeks to make space for teachers, researchers and all those interested in the future of teaching to come together to share their experiences and knowledge of masculinities and/ or gender in schools. Themes including care as philosophy; marginalisation at work, and wellbeing in the workplace will be considered through various lenses.
