This panel of experts will reflect on our year of activities celebrating the life, work and legacy of Charlotte Mason. Throughout the year 2023 we have held online events and face to face talks at our Ambleside campus, University of Cumbria, providing delegates with knowledge and understanding of Charlotte Mason's pedagogy and influence. Our Conference in July also provides opportunities for delegates to debate with specialists. The November expert panel session offers an opportunity to deepen understanding of Charolotte Mason's sphere of influence and delegates can expect to listen to, engage with, possibly challenge but certainly learn from our panellists and each other. In this penultimate panel session we can turn our focus to our own lives and consider what we will take from the Charlotte Mason Centenary activities, to inform future practice in whatever context we find ourselves.
