Craig Oldham knows a thing or two about lecturing. Wanting to avoid falling into the well trodden path of design lectures he came up with the idea of The Democratic Lecture. Craig’s initiative is based around a website through which students he is soon going to lecture can vote for their favourite five topics out of a list of a possible 40. The audience get a bespoke lecture based on their collective interests and Craig gets to reconfigure and deliver his lecture accordingly. Win/win!
A book that collates all 40 Democratic Lecture topics is also available (alongside the above poster) which is the easiest way to benefit from this fantastic project (as access to the voting site is cunningly restricted for lecture-attendees only). For those who know Craig’s previous work (including the excellent 10-penneth) rest assured this is full of his trademark wit and honesty.
