Regardless of your background, degree and academic interest, the UCL Edukeeners Society invites YOU to take part in the 3rd Workshop of the ‘Designing Education’ project!

This student-led UCL ChangeMakers-funded thought experiment, aims to bring together students and faculty members to think innovatively about age-old challenges in the field of education. Past workshops covered concepts such as systems thinking, design theories, purpose in education, change theory, 21st CE challenges, field stakeholder analysis and sandbox approach. You can see some of the theme covered in Our Inspiration list of blogs. 

This workshop is one of the remaining three scheduled until mid-September and is due to take place on Thu, 22 July 2021, 10am-12pm. The topic explored is that of discussing child-centrism (their needs, internal & external factors to the learning process, etc), personalised education trends and chaos theory applied to education.

Check out the proposed structure of the 3rd Workshop on the project’s website and register to attend by following this Eventbrite link

Here are the other remaining workshops as part of this project:

  • Thu, 12 Aug, 10am-12pm: 4th Workshop – Aims and learning outcomes in education (including a discussion on types of curriculum and role of assessment) - Registration link for the 4th Workshop.
  • Thu, 16 Sep, 10am-12pm: 5th & FINAL Workshop – Re-designing education, not retrofitting (including the opportunity cost of including or excluding aspects of education and highlighting tensions between system components). This will also be a wrap-up of our project and a short presentation will be included to review all themes covered in the previous sessions - Registration link for the FINAL Workshop.

We hope that this initiative (and our growing list of alternative theories to frame existing issues) will leave you inspired and hopeful about the future of education!
