  • Summary

  • Becoming an effective teacher takes years of experience. Lucky for you, our podcast hosts have seen enough ‘aha!’ moments throughout their education careers to know which ideas are useful (and which should be avoided). Join Andy, Robin and Adam as they unpack current pedagogical thinking, chat about their education obsessions and share invaluable teaching tips for the classroom and at home. From big questions like, where does the inspiration to learn come from? To smaller ones like, which writing tool is better: pencils or pens? Tune in to learn more than you needed to know about learning.
