Welcome to the Brighter Thinking Pod from Cambridge University Press - Education. We provide a place where international education enthusiasts from all backgrounds can come together to discuss the challenges faced by teachers in a modern classroom and discover new teaching ideas.
Our panels consist of teachers, authors, key subject figures and more, and we also celebrate the very best of teaching with our Teacher Spotlight. If you'd like to get involved, follow us on Twitter @CUPeducation and send in your show suggestions!
Bonus ep: Teaching during school closures
As teaching and learning from home continues, we talk to six teachers from our online research community, the Cambridge Panel, about their experiences of school closures and their advice to the teaching community. Our guests in this episode are Babu Bodapati, Elizabeth Baladhay, Mark Beales, Michael Baldwin, Steve Morling and Tom Healy. Our host is Silvia Pirola.
The final episode in series one is now available. We welcome educators and authors Elizabeth Whittome and Christopher Radmann into the studio to answer your Engaging English questions. From how to encourage modern students to connect with the works of Jane Austen, to tackling the deficit in grammar and language skills in the classroom, Chris, Elizabeth and your host for the week Tamsin Hart, take you on a journey through secondary English.
We sit down with author and assistant head Simon Armitage, as well as E-learning manager Hannah Mathais, to discuss projects in the classroom. From independent research to 'genius hour', introduce a new, creative twist to your school this term!
This week we sit down with Dr Fiona Maine, Tony Cotton and Dave Neale to bring you advice and inspiration for your lessons. Start the new school year full of ideas to engage your students, whilst still meeting curriculum objectives!
