Ep 10: ILEs, VCE and the Flow state

June 19, 2017

We hit double digits with episode 10 and Dean provides an in-depth reflection on the recent Transitions conference at Melbourne Uni. Transitions was a public research conference exploring research behind the move from traditional classrooms to what are being called innovative learning environments (ILEs) This day included a catch up with our good old friend Terry Byers (@tezzabyers). An interesting insight from the conference led to Dean and I taking an intense look at VCE and questioning the validity of the current system (These opinions are obviously ours and not our employers!). I also talk about my experience completing the Flow Fundamentals course and the great work from the Flow Genome Project. We hope you enjoy the show!
