Everything is organised under four broad headings: work on Universities and Community partnerships, reflections on co-production etc; Educational Futures and Anticipation work; Learning Cities, lifelong and area based education; Sociology of Education and Technology (as well as some of the more experimental stuff from my time at Futurelab). These all overlap and interconnect a little, so do scan the rest if you can’t find the publication you were looking for.
Here‘s a talk I gave at the Berlin Schools of Tomorrow Conference in May 2017 on how we reimagine curriculum in a context of radical uncertainty about the future. This session opened a 2 year project in which the Haus der Kulturen der Welt will be leading a national programme of educational reimagining across Germany, supported by their president. Interesting times….
This is a keynote on ‘Universities & the Future’ at the UNIKE Conference in Copenhagen in June 2016. This is the Annual Oxford Education Lecture I gave on a similar topic – what are universities for? (which is also an expansion of the blog post on this site). This is a link to an audio file and slides from a talk at Edinburgh University working through the details of the Connected Communities programme and its implications for research quality and democracy. This is a link to a webinar conducted this year on the topic of educational futures. This is a link to a panel at the WISE Conference on the future of higher education.
