About: This masterclass will analyse and critique education in the present to explore how we might re-imagine the future of education to address key challenges such as societal inequalities and climate change. It will draw on the work of key critical theorists, and on futures thinking in education, to reflect on what sort of educational systems and curricula will be needed to ensure a socially just education system. Participants will work together to reflect on current educational practices and formulate their own vision for how education should develop in the future.
