Imagine that a tiny house becomes your classroom. How would you learn differently if your lecture was relocated into a mobile shepherd's hut? Discover the concrete utopia of a civic educational sanctuary. In the academic world of busy 'think tanks', take a break around the wood burner of this decelerated 'dream tank'! Final of three Festival Welcome Hut days: Experiential seminar. We invite you to an experience of the Welcome Hut in the Moray House Quad where the tiny house is permanently based. In a seminar, we reflect on challenges and the potential of disrupting the standards of educational settings. We present the activities of previous events in an audio-visual format. Participants can share their observations of having experienced the hut during the festival.
