Beate Børresen

Oslo University College, NORWAY
Associated professor in Religious Education, Oslo University College. M.Phil. in History of Ideas, University of Oslo, 1975. She has written a book about religious festivals (1997), and is co-writer of two books about philosophy in school (1999 and 2003). All three books are used in the education of teachers in Norway. During the past few years, she has been working on developing training for teachers and teaching material in philosophy with children and religious education. Since 2000 she has been leading projects in philosophy in many schools in the Oslo-area.
In August 2004 Børresen started, together with her colleague Bo Malmhester, an experiment in philosophy at one primary school in Oslo. The children from stage 1 to 4 have one hour of philosophy a week. They are making the material, doing the teaching and training the other teachers at the school so that they can take over after a while.
In Norway philosophy is a part of religious education. In 2004 the government proposed that philosophy might be a new subject in primary schools from 2006. Before that there shall be experiments with philosophy and development of curriculum in philosophy. This work starts in January 2005. The emphasis will be on doing philosophy more than learning about. Børresen and Malmhester were in September 2005 appointed leaders of the experiment with philosophy by the Directorate of Education. The project will go on until August 2007.
