Jim Crowther is Senior Lecturer in Education at Edinburgh University. In this talk he explores the ideas associated with popular education and their relevance to higher education.

Through reflecting on his working class roots and educational journey, as an adult learner, Jim offers a unique insight the ways in which the underpinning ideologies and practices associated with critical pedagogy and popular education can be deployed by academics, in their role as teachers and researchers.
