About this event

Join us in the far North for a two-day event that challenges the status quo of education. Shake up your assumptions with a feast of critical questions, difficult conversations and thought-provoking activities that will inspire a fresh take on schooling.

THIS YEAR'S THEME: Accessibility: Building Education Towards a Sustainable World

Participants will explore decoloniality through workshops encompassing learning environments, technology, sustainability, and pedagogy. They will encounter unexpected perspectives which will challenge them to question their worldview and be part of the break-away from colonial patterns.

We are aiming to run Burning Questions rather differently to a regular ‘conference’. The approach is participatory, creative and connective. Our main focus is on participation and the exchange of ideas and questions rather than a traditional top-down lecture model. The event will consist of workshops discussing four major themes as well as three special interpretation:

  • Edtech & Decoloniality
  • Critical Pedagogies in Higher Education
  • Spaces and Places of Learning
  • Educational Export
  • Interpretation of Decoloniality through the Kitchen
  • Interpretation of Decoloniality through Music and Dance
