Questionism: School of Thought
Exploring the potentials of an open, student-run platform for peer-to-peer learning
↑ First gathering in 2018 with students froma various backgrounds and disciplines
Questionism is an initiative that creates space to explore the transformative potential of questions.
How would a future historian call a 21th-century alliance of young international critical minds that tried to establish a “new” school of thought by giving importance to the process of questioning?
Questionism proposes to open a transdisciplinary platform (and physical space) to incubate a structure for the sharing of knowledge, peer-to-peer exchange and collaborative doing.
The Department of Questionism is a proposal to establish an informal department run by students within the formal structure of a university, an alternative space where students empower themselves by teaching, learning and doing. It offers an approach to change hierarchies and structures of decision making in the process of knowledge production and it’s sharing; and promote diversity, transdisciplinarity, exchange and collaboration.
