We are not a Statistic! – Wednesday 21 March 2012
The National Student Survey (NSS) is a key element of neoliberal proposals to transform higher education into a marketable commodity. The NSS naturalises the idea of students as ‘customers’ and staff as ‘service providers’ and further embeds a culture of ‘measuring’ and ‘…ranking’ inside our universities. Come to this open workshop to discuss how we can resist the NSS and develop meaningful and democratic forms of student evaluation.
We hope to get students, lecturers and trade unionists from across London together to start organizing a big campaign that will continue into next academic year. Please join in and spread the word!
6pm, Wednesday 21 March, Room 3C, University of London Union, Malet Street, London WC1.
Speakers include John Holmwood (Campaign for the Public University), Arianna Tassinari (SOAS), Sean Rillo Rackza (ULU) and many others.
