Pedagogy Reading Group

Woman in library

28 Feb 2018

1pm to 2pm

Calling all UAL staff and post-graduate students! Join us to discuss pedagogic concerns relevant to an Arts University.  
Last year the group discussed, amongst others, papers on ‘queer pedagogy’, ‘failure’ and ‘employability.’

What will I learn?
These sessions are an opportunity for staff and students to celebrate and critique practice, imagine alternative pedagogies and engage with difficult territories in ways that are mutually enlightening.
