Punk Pedagogies in Practice

Disruptions and Connections

Can the ethos of punk bring educational change?

As teachers, administrators, and policymakers continue to examine how best to approach pedagogical practice, the exploration of new, innovative approaches becomes ever more important. Punk Pedagogies in Practice builds on existing research to connect theory and practice while disrupting current approaches to the post-16 sector. Contributors share insights that apply to a wide range of disciplines, settings, teaching, and learning styles, drawing on experiences in further education, higher education, migrant education, zine workshops, community education, and instruction for speakers of other languages. Taken together, the essays collected here affirm the importance of creativity, resistance, critical mindsets, and do-it-yourself philosophy in contemporary education.
