In 1938, Tim Pitkin, the founder and first president of Goddard College, along with a group of educators, wanted to test a radical hypothesis of learning where individual learning was joined with action in the world and students had control of their education. In Pitkin’s words “many people would regard what we did as radical…as I look back on it, it was. We attempted to get down to the roots of education.”
Goddard College had continued to explore the roots of education with integrity and adherence to its values for 153 years.
But what actually happens when individuals are taught how to take imaginative and responsible action in the world?
What work is created when someone is encouraged to question received knowledge and the status quo?
And what lessons are learned when we create a new understanding of the world and of human experience?
Tune into Lessons from a Radical Model on WGDR, Goddard College Community Radio, with your host Jackie Batten, every Thursday from 11-noon as we explore these questions through the lives and work of people connected with Goddard College: students, alumni, faculty, staff, guests, artists in residence, and others.For more information about this program, please send an email to [email protected]
