”What’s the point of going to school?” And other skeptical questions about education.

A session at Skeptics on the Fringe 2013

Wednesday 14th August, 2013

7:50pm to 8:50pm (GMT)

Stuart’s talks for us are always energetic, challenging and informative. Here he turns his skeptical eye on Education.

Stuart is a PhD Psychology student in the Psychology Department at The University of Edinburgh. His research focuses on two questions: (a) which educational interventions improve learning, and which don’t work?, and (b) what are the effects of education, anyway? he also has secondary interests in other areas, like the psychology of religion and the paranormal.

Stuart is an Skeptics on the Fringe regular, and is the former President of the Edinburgh University Humanist Society.
