> assignment for 27/3

1. BRING ONE A4 WITH SOMETHING IMPORTANT YOU LEARNED FROM YOUR GRANDMOTHER
(or grandfather, or grandparents from relatives or close friends!)

2. each group goes deeper in the research of their case-studies:

 2.1. try to express the goals with short but precise phrases: 
f.e. re-valuing local knowledge from elderly members of the communities (Uni-tierra), creating multigenerational and interdisciplinary spaces for coalitional learning (Free Home University), empowering excluded/ marginal populations (Silent University/ School of Echoes), decolonizing our world views (Swaraj University) etc...

2.2.  list the main actors names: founders, main teachers/students, main collaborations (persons, groups and/or institutions)

2.3. list the places more precisely:
give real names of neighborhoods, hosting institutions, building
try to find the spaces in goolge maps
try to find images (buildings and campus if any; places where activities and meetings take place, are the places where students and teachers live relevant)
> bring the images printed

2.4. try to find out about the financial support (public funding, students fees,  private investors, donations, gift culture, etc)

 

> assignment for 20/3
each group do a web research on the selected case-study trying to understand:
1. main goals
2. main actors/ target groups
3. location/ classroom/ spatial format

select the main words that you find and print/write in A4 papers
(big letters to read from a distance, we will hang the papers on the wall)
