Finnish education is coming to Australia: Podcast

The last time I interviewed Michael Lawrence the experienced music and English teacher had just published his book Testing 3, 2, 1: What Australian Education Can Learn from Finland, which was well received and questioned many of the practices and beliefs underscoring the Australian education system.

In this podcast, Lawrence talks about his collaboration with Tampere University of Applied Sciences in Finland and the imminent roll-out of professional development sessions in Australia.

Called '21st Century Education Trends: A Finnish Perspective', the sessions will give Australian teachers a taste of how Finland's education system became one of the most successful in the world.
