On Monday, December 10th, 2012, please join us in celebrating and discussing the recent work of Dr. Elizabeth Anne Kinsella, Dr. Allan Pitman, Dr. Kathy Hibbert &  Dr. Fred Ellett.

All are invited to this seminar and  holiday celebration in which we will discuss the book Phronesis as professional knowledge: Practical wisdom in the professions.
Phronesis is the Aristotelian term for practical wisdom. In this session the contributors consider the ways in which practical wisdom offers a generative possibility for thinking about the professional knowledge of practitioners.
The question considered  is: “If we take phronesis (practical wisdom) seriously as an organising framework for professional knowledge, what are the implications for professional education and practice?” A multiplicity of understandings emerge as to how practical wisdom might be understood, applied, and extended in today’s world.  We welcome you to join this conversation.
For more information please contact seminar coordinators Stella Ng and Lisa McCorquodale at sng9@uwo.ca
