Festival of Dangerous Ideas
Dangerous June 2014 - Dates for your Diary
Monday 09 June 2014 - Thursday 19 June 2014
The Festival of Dangerous Ideas aims to re-establish the importance of dangerous ideas as agents of change in education – to shift the axis of what is possible!
Key themes will be:
- Small nations, big ideas for education
- Games for learning
- Businesses doing it for themselves: If the trend is for businesses to offer their own degrees, academies and training, what does that say about state funded education?
- Enterprising, entrepreneurial or excluded: What skills do young people really need?
- Engaging learners: do lecturers and teachers have the required youth work skills?
- Research: dangerous ideas from theory to practice.
