Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The chapters in this book have, each in their own way, fundamentally questioned the relationships between education and development. The authors did not stop at challenging the limitations of the status quo but also provided evidence of a wide range of alternative practices already under way in numerous communities in the world that can move us towards new modes of practice and understanding. From democratic popular education schools in Spain, FUNDAEC's tutorial learning system in Columbia (now spreading globally) and Swaraj University in India to places of learning managed by indigenous peoples in their local environment in Bolivia and trans-local networks seeking wisdom rooted in multiple locations, citizens around the world are embarking on their own learning pathways through experiential learning and learning-in-action in order to facilitate change.
