Dear Gardeners and Greenhouse friends,
We hope you are well and keeping warm. Our next Greenhouse gathering is on the 23rd of November at 12pm in SB G07. We hope you can join us at 12pm.
Dr Helena Kettleborough, Associate Lecturer (Department of Management) is the Greenhouse gardener of the month. This is how Helena introduces her gathering:
Jump into winter
As the nights draw in and the majestic skies of winter open before us, come and explore participative action research:
Living life as inquiry: what is happening to the animals?
Explore extended ways of knowing as a response to ‘wicked challenges’.
Co-operative learning between students and lecturers? Our way into hopeful futures? Mini second person action research inquiry
“College students should feel that they are participating in one of the most significant ventures ever to take place in the entire history of the planet.” (Thomas Berry, “The American College in the Ecological Age,” in The Dream of the Earth, 1988: 97).
“…it is the time for universities to rethink themselves and what they are doing.” (Thomas Berry, “The University,” in The Great Work, 199:85).
We are looking forward to seeing you!
Helena and Chrissi
