The Learning Lab platform is designed to grow diverse partnerships and learning networks, to facilitate cross-sector, cross-community activities and critical reflection in which no one participant can claim hierarchy of thought or skill.
Learning Lab pedagogy advocates a form of ‘horizontal’ learning: knowledge is understood as both tacit and informal; ‘research’ is understood from the ground-up; ‘theory and practice’ is informed by everyday life.
Individual Labs open up space for thinking and doing. They can take many forms: roundtables, extended workshops, practical studios, mentoring sessions, screenings, interviews, and online engagement. The shape of the Lab fits the topic being explored.
Learning Lab believes in making research an accessible activity for everyone.
