One of the projects I recently completed (with my colleague Rob Lewis) was a podcast series about key educational issues. The podcasts (which were commissioned by the British Council) focus on South Asia, but, as you will see from the list of topics below, the series is relevant to educators more generally.
In each episode different experts both from and outside South Asia discuss a particular theme, looking at research evidence and, very importantly, what it means in practice for improving the quality of education. The following episodes have been released so far and you can click on any of them to listen via Soundcloud (for other platforms see below):
Episode 1: Features of successful education systems
Episode 2: Raising student learning outcomes
Episode 3: Inclusive education
Episode 4: 21st Century Skills
Episode 5: English Medium Instruction (EMI)
Episode 6: Educational Planning
Episodes are released every two weeks and these topics will be covered in the rest of the series:
- Technology in education
- In-service teacher development
- Teacher networks
We hope you enjoy these podcasts. Please share them with your networks.
