Feedback form is now closed.
Students desire meaningful choice in the classroom; teachers want students who take ownership over their education. Over the past decade, grassroots organizers have developed a set of practices, colloquially known as "direct democracy," that can unite both constituencies. Participants will learn quick-and-dirty strategies that street protesters have used to coordinate direct action in fluid, high-stakes environments; they will conduct a "leaderless discussion" of how educational norms and systems often constrain group agency; and they will develop "action plans" for implementing cultural change within their home institutions.

Here is a shared folder for the workshop:
