Whistleblowing – and the loss of the good self

An exploration in search of a new understanding of the processes that underlie the stigmatisation of whistleblowers, by Mark Stein

In times of change and shape changing such as is currently being faced in the FE and Skills sector, the possibility of grievance and complaints is to be expected and through a variety of routes: whistleblowing is commonly used in public services to great public attention and consequence.

In this lecture, Professor Mark Stein will explore the impact of the process and its stigmatisation not only on the whistleblower but also on the shame and guilt evoked in staff.

The future is already here – it’s just not evenly distributed” – William Gibson, 2003

The next FETL symposium will be held in Parliament and will focus on the emerging role of technology in further education. EdTech and the application of AI has the potential to transform every aspect of teaching, learning and the education environment – but will it and indeed should it?

In line with the Government’s EdTech Strategy, this event will explore the impact of technology on teaching and highlight some of the latest innovations that are being employed in the classroom and workshop to enhance learning. Specifically, the event will involve students to provide a live demonstration of how virtual and mixed reality can provide a more hands-on educational experience.

The symposium discussion will address the challenges and efficacy of moving towards a more technology centred FE sector.
