The Educational Colloquium
The Educational Colloquium was founded in 1954 by the late Professor Stanley Nisbet to provide graduates in Education of the University of Glasgow with a forum to keep in touch with one another both professionally and socially.
In 2002 the Colloquium was enriched by joining with interested staff and students at the University of Strathclyde. In 2008 the scope of the Colloquium was further enhanced by joining with the staff and students of the University of the West of Scotland.
The membership of the Colloquium has grown and diversified over the years and includes early years staff, primary and secondary teachers, lecturers and researchers from colleges and universities, retired members who retain a strong interest in education and friends of members who participate in some meetings. The focus of the Colloquium has also broadened to encompass topics and disciplines related to education including sociology, psychology, the media, children’s services etc. This breadth of interests is reflected in the membership and in the annual programme. Guests of members are always made welcome at the monthly meetings.
