Event - Another Learning Is Possible


Description

International Education Conference (Winchester, UK)

Weekend: 6th and 7th June, 2015.

Another Learning Is Possible

Forced learning is destructive. It is destructive for our children, our society, our planet. An insistent government and teacher-lead diet of tracts and facts is sapping the creativity and motivation from learners. This major conference seeks to discuss and promulgate alternatives to the pedagogy peddled by all the major parties in the UK, and by successive governments in their Sisyphean search for international preeminence in spurious league tables. Some of the world's foremost educational critics will open the discussion on how we might together redirect our educational priorities towards learners who are creative, integrated, thoughtful and motivated.

Day One features a live demonstration of teaching and learning from the renowned Harvard educator, colleague and translator of Piaget, Eleanor Duckworth, a series of keynotes from the indomitable US educational critic and social justice activist Bill Ayers, from the UK, the longstanding anti-testing campaigner Jon Berry and radical educator John Yandell [Institute of Education, London] and presentations from the representatives of the distinctive and transformative Krishnamurti education movement.

Those staying for Day Two will continue the discussion and take part in participant-centred workshops from Duckworth and others, designed to deepen understanding of alternative pedagogies. Whatever the challenges we face, this conference proclaims, another learning is possible.

Another Learning is Possible is a joint conference hosted by The University of Winchester and Brockwood Park School.
