Pedagogy of Power – teaching and learning practical politics

Time: 17:15 – 19:00

Location: The Knowledge Lab, UCL Institute of Education, 23-29 Emerald Street, WC1N 3QS

Brexit, Trump, climate change, domestic violence and many other issues make political ability more important than ever, yet there are very few opportunities for people to learn how to do it.

Practical Politics: Lessons in Power and Democracy is the first text book on teaching and learning how to do politics. It provides a comprehensive introduction to doing politics at any level, from the workplace and neighbourhood to national and global politics. It includes a wide range of surprising case studies and political strategies.

In this talk, author Titus Alexander will show why and how every course and education institution can equip people with practical political skills and knowledge. The talk will cover:

  • Three keys to unlock power for change in any campaign
  • Six reasons for teaching and learning practical politics at university
  • A ten step strategy to influence decisions on any issue

Copies of Practical Politics will be available for sale at a discount. This book will be particularly useful for students and teachers in higher and adult education, and anyone interested in politics, power and democracy today.
