Lifeworlds Learning
because the world is bigger

Welcome to Lifeworlds Learning

Lifeworlds is a community of educationalists, passionate about learning in schools, organisations and communities.

We specialise in exploring how values, experiences and opportunities combine through learning and character to shape our individual and collective futures.

Through engaging values and building resilience our work equips people to better understand and respond to the challenges of 21st century living - what we call 'Bigger Than Self issues'.

We are not a campaigning organisation and have no political or faith-based affiliations. We work locally and internationally combining pedagogical research and applied practice-based learning.

Our website shares just some of our activity. Most of our work is through partnerships or bespoke requests so please contact us if you want to know more.

A Pioneer Curriculum in Shanghai - new CPD guide

In partnership with Xiehe Education Orgamisation in Shanghai and our design friends at Sout!ng Ant, Lifeworlds will be creating a new CPD guide for an exciting 'Pioneer Curriculum' being trialled in Shanghai schools as part of a ten year research project into basic education. As partners to the project, this latest guide builds on the publication of Learning Together in 2015. We are also delighted to see that our 'Learning Through Values' work continues to influence the development of the pioneer curriculum and we look forward to furthering this with colleagues in China.
