The next SPDN event, which will be hosted by the University of Central Lancashire on 3/4 December 2015 for up to 250 professionals, is dedicated to scaling up social pedagogy. Through the event we want to explore ways in which we can individually and jointly develop social pedagogy further, drawing on experiences from pioneering organisations and the latest research in implementation science. Whilst the complexities of moving beyond good intentions and achieving change in the real world mean that there isn’t a step-by-step guide to implementing social pedagogy, there are many ways in which we can take social pedagogy forward within our spheres of influence and create the conditions for further change. We hope that participants will leave both with new ideas of how scaling may occur systematically and a sense of organic growth/scaling.
Registration for the event will open in early October, so please check back soon or add your name to the SPDN distribution list.
