Master's Seminars & Discussion Evenings

The Company of Educators holds Discussion Evenings at periodic intervals to discuss topics of interest to members. The format is usually a presentation followed by questions. The events are informal and the audience has a wide range of backgrounds in education. A report is made of the evening which usually appears in the internal publication The Educator and on this publications page of this web site.

Each evening will start at 18.00 with an opportunity for a glass of wine, juice or water. The presentation and discussion will follow at 18.15 with the evening ending at 20.00. Venues include Coventry University London Campus, Anglia Ruskin University London Campus and City, University of London. Please check instructions for specific events to ensure you go to the right place.

Members of the Company are encouraged to bring guests as this is often a useful way of introducing potential Freemen to the work of the Company. We do ask that those attending make a suggested donation of £10 to help defray the costs of each evening.

Please let the Secretary of the Education Committee know that you and any guests will be attending: geoffrey.edwards@btinternet.com
