Teaching Gastronomy: A Le Cordon Bleu Professional Learning Workshop


Hosted by Le Cordon Bleu

Dr Roger Haden, Head of Discipline (Gastronomy)

Presenters: Suzie Clarke, Carole Holroyd, Kay Richardson

This workshop introduces experienced teachers and interested education professionals to examples highlighting new methods of student engagement and to modes of learning linked to gastronomic themes, holistic thinking and community and environmental outcomes.

Each of the 4 speakers will share how they use innovative tools in face to face and virtual contexts, to enhance Gastronomy’s multidisciplinary approach and to convey a sense of how gastronomy contributes in specific ways to knowledge, practical applications, and ultimately, to cultural well-being.

Gastronomy affords a timely opportunity to rethink current pedagogy, which while meeting curriculum demands, might also provide avenues to explore and integrate subjects and topics in ways that incorporate economics, business operations, design, philosophy, ethics, politics and multiculturalism. Teaching Gastronomy thus offers teachers and professionals great options for engaging, inspiring and applying new knowledge in new ways.

All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation for their attendance.
