This inaugural lecture presents a challenge. As Giroux (2013) notes there is a need to invent modes of pedagogy that release the imagination, connect learning to social change and create social relations in which people assume responsibility for each other. Yet why do we find this so difficult in higher education?

Stella Jones-Devitt recounts some of her struggles and triumphs along the way in trying to make learning engaging for all, whatever the starting point. Within this lecture, she hopes there will be something useful for everyone, concerning her forays with donkey rides, origami frog-making, osmotic walls, zombies and more.

At a time when COVID-19 is forcing us to rely more on each other, this lecture will look at research on the difference they may make.
