A Call For Teaching Guides On Workplace Democracy, Worker Cooperatives, and Collectives

November 18, 2008 at 9:32 pm 1 comment

Hey there folks, I’m putting together a mini-curriculum on teaching workplace democracy, starting worker cooperatives, and so on. It is going to be based on critical pedagogy/popular education models, and it will be designed so that it uses the least amount of (and least expensive) resources available so that it can be replicated by as many people as possible. I’m also planning on eventually expanding this mini-curriculum into a full-fledged teaching guide.

So, I’m wondering if anyone out there has had any experience in teaching workplace democracy or about cooperatives/collectives? Would you be willing to either correspond with me about your experience, share resources, or make available your curriculum (or ones you know about)? I would love to not have to reinvent the wheel and see what other folks have done so I can get a sense of what to try.

If so, please either leave a comment or send me an e-mail at brian AT freeschooling DOT org. Thanks!

(Just FYI: the mini-curriculum will be completed no later than December 18th).

    Hi Brian
    Good luck with this great project! I’m the comms guy with a network of unionists who are advancing workplace democracy in various national contexts (www.newunionism.net). Have been building an archive which I think you’ll find useful: http://delicious.com/newunionism/workplace-democracy

    All the best in your work.
