Community of Inquiry

The Community of Inquiry [CoI] is the core pedagogical practice of Philosophy in Schools.

CoI was introduced as a new pedagogy in the 1980s, shaped by the work of Matthew Lipman and Ann Margaret Sharp in the US, reaching Australia in the 1990s through the efforts of Laurance Splitter and Phil Cam.

FAPSA is proud to have Phil Cam as one of our founding members and a guiding vision in our community.

FAPSA affiliates around Australia, NZ and South-East Asia all engage in a wide range of CoI activities and training opportunities; be they Community of Inquiry Days, Philosophy Festivals, Philosothons or Philosophy in Public Spaces [PiPS].
