  • Our Education Philosophy - Pendle Hill - A Quaker study, retreat, and conference center near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    the education of Quakers and other spiritual seekers who want to focus more of their personal professional and civic lives on fostering a faithful and spiritually fulfilling transition towards a sustainable society that embodies respect and care for the community of life social and economic justice democracy nonviolence and peace This is not all that distant from Hurst s educational goals For the purposes of educating effective labor organizers and activists Hurst argues that adult educators should rely most heavily on the principles and methods of popular education As Hurst notes Popular education is at its heart the empowerment of adults through democratically structured cooperative study and action directed toward achieving more just equitable and peaceful societies As part of this democratically structured cooperative study and action popular educators typically employ a wide variety of participatory dialogic problem posing reflective and experiential learning methods including discussions deep dialog one on one coaching storytelling arts and crafts case studies exercises role plays mindfulness meditation the actual practice of skills through simulations and engaged fieldwork in the wider community We frequently use all of these education approaches at Pendle Hill but also add worship and worship sharing as part of our teaching and learning Like most popular educators we also focus on the following seven elements in our work Building relationships and getting started as a learning community Focusing on the experience and knowledge of participants Looking for relevant patterns in their experience Adding new information and theory Practicing skills strategizing or planning for action Applying learning in action settings outside of the classroom and Reflecting on and evaluating the teaching and learning experience to support continuous improvement We believe that this is the best educational approach for this program and the one that most encourages community compassion curiosity creativity joy insight
