From discipline(s) to cooperation: five levers to transform education and research

Workshop, Open Education Day 2021

Education often remain led by discipline(s): disciplines that fragment realities and knowledge, discipline that punishes anyone who does not surrender to the axioms of the field – try to question money creation in an accounting course, or biaises of RCT trials in medical studies. Curricula and funding also generally remain structured by disciplines controlled by experts. What if there was another way?

During this workshop, I will invite you to discover and experiment five levers that could profoundly transform education, so that schools and universities become communities where everyone is recognized for their talents and for their contribution to the collective. This presentation focuses on group dynamics and changing habits. The levers presented do not require any change at the structural (institutional) level.
