At the College, we often talk about our distinctive co-operative learning approach...but what does this really mean?

In this fun, interactive webinar, we’ll explore the essence of co-operative learning, through the metaphor of perfume-making.

Perfume is created through the process of blending a range of different ingredients that produces both range and depth; these top, base and heart notes are distilled together to produce a unique fragrance. What’s more, this fragrance profile is endlessly adaptable, changing its character through time, space, and context.

Co-operative learning is built on just such a blend of ingredients, such as individual and co-operative values, lived experience and a range of participatory learning methodologies. We would love you to take part in our own distillation and co-creation of what we mean by co-operative learning. What do you think are the top, base and heart notes of our co-operative learning blend?
