Presented by Professor Carmel Borg (University of Malta), the seminar will blend theoretical insights into the meaning of authentic dialogues with practical and experiential knowledge regarding the limits and possibilities of such dialogues. The presentation will foreground Paulo Freire’s (1921-‐1997) concept of a genuine dialogical approach to knowledge production as an antidote to a teacher-‐centred approach where transmission and coverage of knowledge represents the beginning and end of the educational act.
