Virtual seminar: Challenging the Theory-Practice Divide in the Context of Development Education Centres in England.

This event, hosted on Zoom, will see Dr Andrea Bullivant, a practitioner based with a Development Education Centre (DEC), discuss her research which aims to address the lack of knowledge about conceptualisations of Development Education and Global Learning (DEGL) and the theory-practice relationship from the perspectives of practitioners.  It will show how insights from literature on embodied and knowing practice challenge assumptions about a theory-practice divide and can support DECs to realise their potential as a community of practice in the face of more dominant agendas and challenges.

The seminar will be of interest to practitioners, as well as researchers, students and other actors in the field of DEGL with an interest in theory or practice.

This event is part of a series of seminars run by ANGEL partners the Development Education Research Centre (DERC), a UCL Institute of Education research centre that acts as the hub for knowledge generation, new thinking and quality output on development education, global learning and global citizenship.
