    FreshEd #262 – Climate Education Beyond COP26 (Christina Kwauk & Radhika Iyengar)

With me are Christina Kwauk and Radhika Iyengar, who have recently co-edited the book, "Curriculum and Learning for Climate Action: Toward an SDG 4.7 Roadmap for Systems Change." They argue that COP26 has been disappointing in terms of education and climate action, and encourage everyone to focus on local action and change.

    Christina Kwauk is the Research Director at Unbounded Associates and a non-resident fellow at the Brookings Institute. Radhika Iyengar is Director of Education at the Center for Sustainable Development, Earth Institute, Columbia University.

    FreshEd #260 – Education in Radical Uncertainty (Stephen Carney)

    FreshEd #260 – Education in Radical Uncertainty (Stephen Carney)

    Today Steve Carney joins me to talk about his new co-written book with Ulla Ambrosius Madsen entitled “Education in Radical Uncertainty: Transgression in Theory and Method.” The book offers a major critique of the field of comparative education and asks us to dwell in experience rather than make value judgements.

    This is a powerful book in both form and content and demands to be read by anyone working in the field of comparative and international education. Steve Carney is a Professor of Educational Studies at Roskilde University, Denmark.

    FreshEd #259 – History of Indentured Students in The USA (Elizabeth Tandy Shermer)

    FreshEd #259 – History of Indentured Students in The USA (Elizabeth Tandy Shermer)

    Today we talk about the 45 million people in the USA who owe $1.7 trillion in student debt. My guest is Elizabeth Tandy Shermer, an Associate Professor of History at Loyola University Chicago.

    Elizabeth shows in her new book that the student debt crisis today can be traced back to the New Deal. She details the changing political fault lines when it comes to federally funding higher education. Elizabeth Tandy Shermer’s new book is Indentured Students: How Government-Guaranteed Loans Left Generations Drowning in College Debt.

    FreshEd #258 – No Study Without Struggle (Leigh Patel)

    FreshEd #258 – No Study Without Struggle (Leigh Patel)

    Today we talk about confronting settler colonialism in higher education. My guest is Leigh Patel, Professor of Urban Education at the University of Pittsburgh, and President of Education for Liberation. In her new book, No Study Without Struggle, Leigh shows how the ability to study has always involved some form of struggle by groups historically marginalised in the USA. Her book is a love letter to study groups around the world.

Absolutely brilliant

I was introduced to this podcast in one of my graduate school courses. We were assigned to listen to a few podcasts of interviews Will did that were relevant to the class theme for that week.

I am now addicted. The guests bring a wealth of knowledge about education but also other areas. Will asks some great questions and pushes the interview to great depth in such a short time. I’ve learned so much from these podcasts.

Highly recommend if you are interested in what goes on behind the scenes in education.

I love it!

I want to keep up with the lastest ideas in education, but I read enough already. Thoughtful questions and interesting answers from great minds!

Interesting and accessible

This podcast does an excellent job of making complex ideas more accessible by highlighting public intellectuals whose research has substantial implications in the real world, particularly in education systems.
