Seminars and Webinars

Seminar Series

The Jubilee Centre has organised regular presentations as part of its Seminar Series on character, virtues, values and education. These seminars are predominantly a venue for members of the Centre to meet and exchange opinions, but they are open to all members of staff and research students in the School of Education. The seminars provide a safe, collegial environment to present ‘thought-pieces’, initial observations, or introductions to topics and projects which explore some fundamental questions or concepts relating to specific research projects, or other pieces of work. The seminars have created a friendly community of inquiry where people feel at ease to try out ideas and hypotheses.

Details of the seminars, including papers and presentations, that have been held to date can be found below.


Webinar Series

To adapt to the circumstances created by the pandemic, the Centre has been hosting webinars throughout 2020 and 2021 to continue providing an environment for staff, students and those interested in the Centre’s work, to discuss character education remotely. For the Centre’s Fostering Personal and Social Virtues in Education series of webinars, delivered in collaboration with The Congregation for Catholic Education, Vatican, Rome, click here.
