As learning amidst the pandemic turns increasingly to online formats, many may be considering exactly what it is that makes education successful. In this podcast, Dr Raj Persaud speaks to Professor Scott Newstok about his 2020 book, How to Think like Shakespeare – an enlightening guide to the craft of thought which demonstrates what’s been lost in education today and how we might begin to recover it. Drawing from the works of Shakespeare and other writers past and present, Professor Newstok examines the educational philosophies that shaped these great minds, and how we could benefit from applying these to our own modern-day learning.

what is meant by 'education' in terms
of what we are trying to achieve through teaching
the difference between
assessment-driven teaching and human flourishing, and how the
narrow-minded nature of testing can foreshorten the potential of
the notion of 'craft'.
