Master class “Practical wisdom beyond rule obedience”

30-11-2016 @ 17:30 - 20:30

€95

Care, social work and education are not about following the rules. Rules, guide lines, protocols are helpful, but you have to deal with them in a practically wise manner. Andries Baart and Guus Timmerman did thorough research into what general practitioners perceive, consider, assess, weigh, do and evaluate at the bedside of their sick and dying patients. The results are best summarized under the heading of ‘practical wisdom’. Professionals have to practice practical wisdom to deliver good care, social work and education. Practical wisdom beats rule obedience. We can explain that and account for it.

In the master class, the results of this research will be presented by Andries Baart, extraordinary professor at North-West University, South Africa. Three researchers will connect his analysis with their knowledge of care, social work and education. Marij Bontemps is paediatrician, was member of the board of the St. Jansdal hospital in Harderwijk, and is doing research into practical wisdom. Sabrina Keinemans is lecturer and researcher at Utrecht University of Applied Sciences and fellow in the Innovation of Social Work research group. Ton Zondervan is lecturer, teacher educator, and researcher at Windesheim University of Applied Sciences.

The master class is relevant to professionals in the fields of care, social work and education, especially for those who just sensibly do what they think that has to be done, and become tired of the way they have to explain it and account for it. The spoken language is Dutch. You can download the brochure here (Dutch)

The master class is organized by the Foundation Critical Ethics of Care, that facilitates the international research network Critical Ethics of Care and the website Ethicsofcare.org.
