Teaching through the pandemic: lessons learned in and out of school

Teachers, students, parents and entire school communities have been through a tumultuous time having been forced to switch schooling from the classroom to remote learning and back again in the space of a few months. So, what’s worked, what didn’t and what are schools going to take with them into the future? On this episode of Talking Teaching two leaders of two very different schools share their insights. Plus we speak with Professor Janet Clinton, who was commissioned by the Australian Government to report on ‘Supporting vulnerable children in the face of a pandemic’, about the potential effect COVID-19 may have on vulnerable students.

Presenters: Genevieve Costigan and Joe Sullivan

Guest speakers:

  • Luke Cripps, Assistant Principal, Newlands Primary School
