Teaching & Learning Seminar – “Student as Producer – research-engaged teaching and institutional strategy” by Prof. Mike Neary

13 September, 2018

Student as Producer was established at the University of Lincoln in 2010 to embed research-engaged teaching as the organizing principle for teaching and learning across the institution. This approach to research-engaged teaching was informed by critical theory, critical pedagogy and popular education. Mike Neary will talk about the practical and conceptual issues involved with implementing Student as Producer at Lincoln. He will go on to discuss the way in which the pedagogic model is being used to create a new framework for higher education in the form of a co-operative university.

The seminar will be a discussion with Professor Neary. It would be helpful to read the following before the seminar:
