Event Description

Full Description:
Education is important to mankind and to civilisation. Our ability to learn is why we rule the planet, and not tigers or bears.

It can seem difficult to teach our students other than how we ourselves were taught, difficult logistically and difficult politically and culturally.

Yet applying our analytical, playful, skeptical scholarly minds to the question of the best ways of teaching, and critically reflecting on what our desired outcomes of education really are, can lead to classes and experiences and students which are inspiring and which remind us why we have chosen this life.

We’ll look critically at online education, flipped approaches, Billy Joel, assessment, students as partners, kindness, teaching at scale and stories and tips from the frontline. The best way to learn is from mistakes, and the best mistakes to learn from are those of others - so come and hear a selection of Professor Buckland’s more catastrophic and amusing mistakes.
