Just over a year ago, SSC Scholars, Joss Winn and Mike Neary, received funding from the Independent Social Research Foundation to develop a ‘model for co-operative higher education’. This work has been documented on the SSC website over the past 13 months. The formal period of the funded project has now ended and the ISRF have published an overview of the project, its outputs and outcomes. As planned, we will also be discussing what we have learned from this research and thinking about how it can be applied to the Social Science Centre at our AGM on Saturday 7th May.
You will see from the ISRF website that our work continues on the theory and practice of co-operative higher education. Mike and Joss have recently been funded by the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education to focus specifically on co-operative leadership and governance for higher education. We encourage anyone who is interested in this work to contact us or subscribe to the discussion list and join 90+ other researchers, students, co-operators, and activists. Please do introduce yourself!
