Outside the Box: The Danish Folkehojskole as Educational Innovator
Collins, John
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v53 n2 p336-342 Jul 2013
Travelling between various Scandinavian adult educational institutions in 1978, the author, John Collins, picked up a couple of hitchhikers--Danish students returning to their school after a short vacation period. As they neared the Funen Island harbour village, which was their destination, the students invited Collins to visit their school. What he saw there thirty-five years ago continues to energise his ideas of what constitutes a good education and to yield fresh insights into what is possible and desirable about organised learning activities.
