Episode 12: Imagineering, uncharted territories and adventures in learning

Episode 12 of The Curriculum is the second episode with special guest, Hywel Roberts. He talks about his ‘Imagineering’ work with schools and how this pedagogy can set teachers imaginations free to create exciting learning. It’s fascinating to hear Hywel talk us through his ideas, so it’s a big thank you to him for joining us on the show for the second time.

Included in the episode is chat about Hywel’s second book, written with Debra Kidd, Uncharted Territories: Adventures In Learning and his future book Bad Hat Harry and Imagineering!: Making the curriculum your own.
