About Paul Martin’s seminar.
In this stimulating and fun seminar Paul Martin seeks the help of secondary and upper secondary school teachers to address three urgent questions for today’s students:
1. How is Italy different for young people today compared to past generations?
2. Does a humanities education still have value? What work, emotional, intellectual and life skills can it bring for today’s students?
3. How can we help to prepare and educate young humanities students for a long working life in an unstable and more globalised world?
