David Sobel to Keynote Conference in Ireland

David Sobel, core faculty member in the Department of Education, will be a keynote speaker and workshop leader at a conference, From Apathy to Empathy: Reconnecting People and Place, held in Ireland from August 22 to 24.

Leading educators from Ireland and Europe are expected to attend the conference, which will explore place-based education. Ireland’s Minister for Education and Skills, Ruairi Quinn, announced the conference in June.

The title of Sobel’s keynote is “Place-based Education: Making School More Like a Farmer’s Market.” He will also teach a workshop on “Childhood and Nature: Design Principles for Educators.”

Jennifer Kramer, ED ’01, a teacher at Guilford Central School in Guilford, Vermont, will also participate in the conference, leading a workshop called Preserving Community.

The conference is sponsored by the Burrenbeo Trust, a nonprofit dedicated to protecting Ireland’s Burren region, one of the largest karst landscapes in Europe.
