Module overview

This module examines education’s role in creating a more democratic, equal and sustainable society. Today, many argue for the need to radically rethink education and reorient the core goals of learning in order to achieve social justice. A key question is exactly how - and whether - education is able to effectively promote progressive forms of change in society as a whole.

The module looks closely at key concepts, traditions and thinkers in the fields of popular education, critical pedagogy and community organising; and it examines both the role of education in collective efforts to transform society, and the role of collective organising in efforts to transform schooling and education. Finally, alongside core lectures and seminars, the module will provide students with an opportunity to learn community organizing skills and participate in a local community project.
