A conversation between Dr David Howes and Dr John Munro.

There is much that can be learnt through reflection on the experience of remote and flexible learning.

During this 45-minute webinar, Dr David Howes and Dr John Munro will discuss what has been learnt about the student learning process, with a particular focus on the role episodic memory plays in learning.

The discussion will draw on the work John has been doing with individual students through the period of remote learning and the feedback schools have provided to David over the last 2 months.

There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the webinar.
