Interviews

Interviews are a great way to share experiences in an accessible and personal way. This website features interviews with practitioners as well as researchers working in Catholic education globally, or in other organizations promoting integral human development.
 
We hope to feature multiple voices and experiences, so if you have ideas of people you believe we should interview, please contact us. We can conduct and publish interviews in English, French, or Spanish.
We also feature on this website links to a few other series of interviews on Catholic education or other related topics. If there is a series you believe that we should link to, again, let us know.
