The TRANSFORM-iN Education organises and attends events for researchers and teaching professionals and practitioners to explore the balance of conformity and transformation in schooling, including the tensions in pursuing both goals. These spaces value uncertainty. This includes exploring different knowledge and perspectives, feelings and tensions, and ethical deliberations. The emphasis is on slowing down and probing deeply, rather than too quickly or narrowly deciding how to respond to challenges.
If you are interested in exploring how to engage with uncertainties in an education setting, do please get in touch.
