Well. Saturday the 18th saw Notting Hill College host the 7th Innovation in Education Conference. It was a long day. Lots of really inspirational speakers. And your hosts as, well, the hosts! Whilst we like to keep things light, as hosts of the Conference I thought we did a brilliant job! ...

Well, we all need to plan for the important things. So, how to plan your lesson. How to cope with a lesson plan that dies on its face. How to cope with a lesson that may have been impacted by the invasion of the earth by aliens?It COULD happen!

Its been a while! But we are BACK! Paul and Kirsty are returning to your ears with more on the topic of assessment, the upcoming Innovation in Education conference, and the best cream buns! ALL deeply important topics, I'm sure you'll agree!
