Joel Westheimer And Mark Kingwell – Citizenship in A Changing World

By Stephen Hurley

Host Stephen Hurley scans the education ecosystem, looking for the people and ideas that are starting to change the way we think about teaching, learning, schools and communities.

Stephen Hurley is joined by Mark Kingwell, Professor of Philosophy at University of Toronto and Joel Westheimer, University Research Chair in Democracy and Education at the University of Ottawa. The discussion includes changing notions of citizenship, the role of public institutions in promoting and nurturing that citizenship and the efforts to reclaim the public sphere.
