Talk: Whatever happened to the Polytechnics? (Newcastle, 6 April)

February 28, 2017

Newcastle College has organised a public series of talks in collaboration with the Lit & Phil. I’ll be talking on Thursday 6th April.

“Whatever happended to the Polytechnics?”

The talk will consider the place of polytechnics in policy debates and political imagination as we face a new settlement for English HE and new attempts at reforming technical education. It will focus on the need for civic education institutions geared to lifelong and modular learning and argue that the dominance of the full-time degree and ‘boarding school’ provision is the main problem in English HE – one not fixed by any new push on accelerated degrees.

Time: 6-7pm

Venue: Lit & Phil

There is no fee but booking is required.
