2nd International Conference on Reimagining Schooling

  • 24 Sep 2015
  • 26 Sep 2015
  • University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki, Greece

Keynote by Bill Lucas.

Given the growing economic and social crisis developing in Europe, Education faces a renewed challenge to transform. The current school systems across Europe may need to look beyond teaching for exams to enabling young people to develop the critical thinking, agency and beliefs to engage with society in new ways.

This represents a significant challenge to those working in education. However, education is currently generating and taking on new ideas, values and critical perspectives in a compelling way and there is a growing consensus about the potential for change.

This conference will take on this challenge using an innovative process, it will debate if, and how, schooling can be changed and then aim to develop viable new models for schooling by working collectively as a temporary institution.

The conference will:

  1. debate the current function of schooling for society
  2. debate what roles and values people learn from schooling
  3. share new ideas about reimagining the school
  4. bring likeminded people together to take action on those ideas.

The conference is not intended to challenge schools but will be being run in the spirit of enabling everyone to take collective responsibility for, and have a voice in transforming, our schooling process – and our society. In this regard, the conference will include contributions from school children, parents and school teachers.
