LEARNING CO-OPERATIVELY: ACTIVISM, WISDOM AND OPEN MUTUAL EXCHANGE IN AN AGE OF AUSTERITY

P. Haywood

University of Salford (UNITED KINGDOM)
In the UK context, one of the consequences of the new settlements for Further and Higher Education is that post-16 education is becoming ever more limited and limiting. Specifically older candidates potentially engaging with continued or advanced learning for the first time (or those re-entering education following redundancy, forced career change or educational and career interruption) are largely excluded or dissuaded from opportunities. This is due to a range of factors that include new fee levels, restrictive student funding regimes and the contraction of flexible learning opportunities as a result of pressures on professional educational institutions.

Addressing these needs will require a close partnership between multiple agencies currently affecting educational engagement or delivering qualifications. It will demand a fresh assessment of the role of culture led learning, enterprise learning and citizen inspired knowledge exchange in a relationship with professional educators in both the public and private sector. The Salford Learning Co-operative is a concept currently under investigation via a broad and inclusive collaborative partnership in the Salford City region. It aims to provide an over-arching framework for rhizomatic education and open shell curriculum management and a comprehensive learning progression framework entirely owned by the participant.

A careful design perspective and sensitively structured on-line environment incorporating tools for the personalisation and presentation of learning can cut across different types of provision or endeavour and support the concept of a Learning Co-operative in transformational spaces.
