Student-led institutions: an academic workshop

Student-led institutions: an academic workshop

We’ve been asked to promote this very interesting looking event to “schools, colleges, educational charities, policy forums, trade unions”. I’m intending on going.

Theme: Autonomy and Freedom in schools and universities: a focus on pedagogy and curriculum

Date:     Thursday 12 March 2015

Time:     12noon-5pm

Venue:  Executive Meeting Room JHB 128, Oxford Brookes University, (Headington, Gipsy Lane site), Oxford

We have confirmed two keynotes speakers who will share experiences of working in innovative student-led institutions in Denmark. These are Prof Martin Bayer (Roskilde University) and Mr Jørn West Larsen (Hellerup School). There will also be opportunities for smaller discussions and workshops which will be confirmed nearer the time.

A website ( and a Facebook page ( are also available to view. These include information about a new PhD scholarship which is currently being advertised at the University of Hull. This is attached to the Freedom to Learn Project and will focus on exploring autonomy and freedom in the tertiary sector. Please help us by passing on the details of this scholarship to any potential applicants. The deadline is 2 February 2015.

Please do email Clare McKinlay ( if you would like to reserve a place at this or future project events.
