Speaker: Professor Michael Fielding (University of London) Title: Beyond Student Voice: Patterns of Partnership and the Demands of Deep Democracy

This session offers an intellectual typology and practical tool patterns of partnership intended to assist in the process of intergenerational learning and democratic development.

If we really believe in democracy, we need to develop schools that take seriously Francis Williams' insistence that Democracy is not only something to fight for; it is something to fight with. The student voice movement offers a promising starting point to reflect on and develop new possibilities and approaches to learning, both in its more restricted formal modes and in its broader more openly democratic senses.
