‘Thinking the yet to be thought: Education for the future’
What should education look like in the future?
Traditional? Classical? Technology-focussed? Entirely optional? Schools in the Cloud? Global universities? Homeschooling? Entirely vocational? Predominantly online? Skills-based? Project-based? De-schooling? Freeschooling? Democratic? Radical? As it is now? What?
Our sixth ESRC seminar series event, to be held in Cardiff on 5th July will focus on the question of what ‘education for the future’ should look like.
We recognise that there are a wide variety of opinions on this, and therefore, we offer participants the chance to pitch arguments and persuade the audience.
We are looking for pitches of up to 15 minutes. These can take any format, including formal presentation, soap-box style, demonstration, speeches, or anything else. We welcome all views, including provocative ones. The aim of the pitches should be to engage the audience and to make us think differently about education. ‘Education’ can refer to schools, colleges, universities, adult education, informal learning, community work.
Please send an abstract/summary of up to 200 words. We will choose a good range of pitches from these so as to make for a lively event.
Abstracts to be sent to Max.Hope@hull.ac.uk or C.Montgomery@hull.ac.uk by Tuesday 31 May 2016.
