As part of our QED workshop programme, Marianne Talbot from the University of Oxford will be giving a workshop on an Introduction to Critical Reasoning. The workshop will be an interactive session designed to help attendees understand how to recognise, analyse and evaluate arguments.
Marianne Talbot has been Director of Studies in Philosophy at the Department for Continuing Education, University of Oxford since 2001, having lectured at Oxford for thirty years. From 1996 to 2000 Marianne chaired the National Forum for Values in Education and the Community, leading work on the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils in England and Wales. The Forum produced the statement of values that underpins the National Curriculum.
Marianne has had podcasts in the top ten download places of iTunesU for the last ten years. The Nature Of Argument has been downloaded over five million times, been number one many times, and once held all top ten download positions.
The workshop will be taking place twice over the QED weekend, as part of our regular schedule.
