This paper focuses on UK higher education (HE), but the circumstances it describes have parallels throughout the Global North. Its purpose is to offer hope to faculty and students despondent about the possibility of changing a HE system inimical to much-valued aspects of professional (including planning) education. This paper argues that a Freirean-inflected understanding of reflection can create conditions in which students and faculty have the possibilities of developing a shared, and radical, understanding of the shortcomings of current HE and identify real, if sometimes modest, opportunities for change in the short term.
