Join us Monday, July 29, 2019 for an all-day workshop on the Founding Fathers' Philosophy of Education

Earn a $150, eat, learn and have fun … that is the way continuing education should be!  Through grant funds made possible through the Menard Family, the Gwartney Institute is pleased to offer “The Founders Philosophy of Education” colloquium.  This will be an engaging one day event where up to 16 high school teachers will come to Ottawa University to participate in a Socratic discussion about assigned readings by the Founders and leading lights in education as early as 1749 (click here for a preview)! Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included and a certificate of completion will be provided at the end along with an honorarium of $150.

Readings will be sent to you upon registration.
