Looking East

Categories PED Talks

Our latest PED-Talk was given by Nick Tarr, who drew on his learning adventures in the Far East to give a fascinating insight into life in a school in Asia.

Nick enabled us to reflect on whether or not an exam results driven culture is desirable, and whether it is something that is easily replicated in the West, where lifestyles and values may be very different. In addition, staff were able to learn how to approach students arriving from the Far East, who are used to a different experience of teaching and learning. Thanks to Nick for a fascinating, funny and helpful talk!
