Essex Business School & Kaplan Singapore Symposium: Alternative Finance // Rethinking Financial Education– Thursday July 22nd, 2021, 5 pm – 10 pm SGT.

March 11, 2021

You are cordially invited to attend the University of Essex and Kaplan Singapore Symposium. Please register here and upon acceptance of your participation into this free-of-charge symposium,  you will be sent a Zoom link one week prior to event. It takes place on Thursday July 22nd, 2021, 5 pm – 10 pm SGT. 

The debacle surrounding “Game Stop” in early 2021 was extraordinary, a moment where instruments and processes of contemporary finance entered popular culture and discourse in ways that are rarely seen. From the dynamics of short-selling to conflicts between small investors and larger brokerages, to the abandonment of the traditional retail sector to gamifcation and memeifcation of financial transactions. These events were for many a “learning moment” in the sense of bringing to light dynamics that were far less visible before.

If this was indeed a learning moment, what have we learned? What lessons might be learned for finance education? What can we make of these dynamics for rethinking approaches to teaching and learning today? Both in the sense of financial education itself, but also in the broader sense of teaching and learning itself is deeply embedded in what Randy Martin theorized as the “financialization of everyday life”?

Over many years, there has emerged a rich tradition of alternative education practices, from the ideas and practices of Paulo Freire and Ivan Illich, to the formation of free schools and non-institutional forms of organized self-education. These educational alternatives are built upon a foundation of deep learning, as participants take part out of an interest or enthusiasm for the topic, rather than as a means to attain a qualification or degree. The symposium will explore these approaches to applied teaching and learning.
