About Karen Lawson

Karen Lawson I’m Karen Lawson, education advisor and Curator of Dangerous Ideas at College Development Network, the national support agency for staff in Scotland’s’ colleges. Originally I trained and worked in social work and then spent eighteen years as lecturer, senior lecturer and teacher fellow in the Further Education Sector. Currently I organise a national education festival: the Festival of Dangerous Ideas which aims to re-establish the importance of dangerous ideas as agents of change in education – to shift the axis of what is possible! It is for everyone who is passionate about education including college, university, school staff and students as well as those engaged in education throughout the creative communities.
