...with Education (Ep. 16)

Is education the closest thing we have to a silver bullet for the ills and ailments of our society, even if it takes generations to have a real impact? What's the history of education and where might we be headed? What are the forces that compete to shape our schools, our students and our minds?

Ben chats with Ted Christou, a teacher, historian and educator of educators at Queen's University

About the Guest

Dr. Christou is an Associate Professor in the Curriculum Studies and Educational Studies fields, with a cross-appointment to the Department of History in Queen's University's Faculty of Arts and Science. He began his professional teaching career as an elementary school teacher in Scarborough with the Toronto District School Board. Following a circuitous path, which included teaching at the Primary, Junior, Intermediate, and Senior Divisions (Continuing Education), Dr. Christou returned to the academy to pursue doctoral studies in history of education. Dr. Christou commenced his academic course on the tenure track in Fredericton at the University of New Brunswick in 2009. In July 2012, that course led westwards, back to Kingston, Ontario, and to Queen’s University.

Dr. Christou's teaching in the Faculty of Education at Queen’s extends to several disciplines; in particular, he concentrates upon history of education, philosophy of education, social studies, and the theory and practice of history.

His research, which spans several fields - history, philosophy, curriculum, and teacher education - is tied together by two questions: a) What is an education for?, and b) How might we imagine an education individual? These questions are bound by historical, as well as contemporary, context and complexities.
