If you are a lecturer, teacher or trainer of any description then you may be interested in this blog post by Jakob Werdelin on Co-Creative Conversation deconstructed: Comfy Café or outcome-driven classroom?.
Jakob took part in one of my London Knowledge Cafés in February and was inspired to adapt the Café format to an educational setting by creating "Co-Creative Conversations".
Jakob ran a trial at the University of Roehampton Business School that I gather was a great success and he now has a free public event coming up in May in Brimingham in the UK: Empowering KS2-5 learners through Participatory Budgeting.
I have long thought that the Knowledge Café has a strong role to play in Education and you can find a few examples I have documented in my blook.
I am hoping Jakob's work and that of others will help inspire more educationalists to take the role of conversation in education more seriously. It's great to see some the work in schools on oracy for example.
