Logo   Occupy Economics Toronto   Workshop Archive 2012 - 2015

Guide to the Archive
Select a presentation with a topic you find interesting. Find a (class)room with projector facilities. Form a freeschool circle and start the slides. Have the participants in turn read the text on the slides and then explore the meaning in the group for 5-10 minutes before going to the next slide.
Another possibility is to select a facilitator, who selects and prepares a presentation and facilitates the group's interaction.
Note: the earliest part of the archive was part of the Alexandra Park freeschool, and therefore obviously did not develop visual presentations. One of these classes was designed as a role play.

NB. For unknown reasons, Keynotes won't download after the transfer from Occupy Economics. Only pdfs working.
