The Teaching and Learning of Britishness and Fundamental British Values – Dr Sadia Habib, Goldsmiths, University of London 

Teaching Britishness and ‘Fundamental British Values’ is a policy requirement increasingly placed on educational institutions yet the literature shows Britishness is fluid, evolving and often difficult to define for White British and ethnic minority youth, as well as for teachers, raising theoretical and pedagogical concerns about how best to respond to political initiatives. In the presentation I will focus upon the complexities of teaching and learning Britishness and Fundamental British Values (FBV) by examining:

(i) the views of trainee teachers of Art who are attempting to make sense of FBV.

(i) the pedagogies employed by two Art classes in a southeast London school.

Sadia Habib completed her Phd in Education at Goldsmiths in 2016. She has recently published her first book “Learning and Teaching British Values: Policies and Perspectives on British Identities” (Palgrave, 2017).
