The first of 8 posts to introduce Education as Experiment
Sarah Amsler and Mike Neary will engage in a conversation about work they are doing inside and outside the University of Lincoln, UK. The conversation will focus on two projects: Student as Producer and the Social Science Centre, Lincoln. Student as Producer, which they describe as a critical response to the consumerisation of higher education, is the organising principle for teaching and learning at the University of Lincoln. The Social Science Centre is a co-operative experiment in higher learning across the city of Lincoln. Key themes to be discussed are education and the institution, the politics of representation, autonomous education and the production of critical and practical knowledge.
