Calling all UAL staff and postgraduate 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.

Book a place

There is usually one reading each month during term, with two sessions: one evening, one lunchtime.
