Here is his lecture about the New types of alternative pedagogy and active learning in the Institute for the Study of Societies and Knowledge at Bulgarian Academy of Sciences at March 6 2017 in Sofia, Bulgaria.
This is how Matthew Love himself explains the topic of his lecture:
Role and Function of Alternative Pedagogy in Higher Education
The Case for Alternative Pedagogy in HE can be a wide range of methods and approaches – Autonomous learning… leadership/community / group dynamics. Technology…also is probably also going to play an increasing role of course
Harnessing the various elements are what makes for a successful pedagogy. That is not to say however there is no room for traditional methods..it’s adapting them to the new kind of conditions ….in the learning.The objective here is to combine ideas and knowledge of what we have and hopefully develop something new that offers an alternative to the current narrative of teaching and learning in HE
And education generally. Active Learning…It’s the new ‘Rock n Roll’ of Global education. However, for now let`s start with a pedagogy that is based on the experiences of the collective of the association, (that everyone is free and equal).
