Dr Rob Webster chats to Dominic about the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Pedagogy (HHCP), which aims to enable children to realise their full potential through optimal teaching and learning. We find out how the work of the HHCP has responded to the pandemic, particularly with looking at ways to help parents building upon their role as educators.

Listen out for HHCP’s research and theory-informed principles that many might find useful, and how we might be able to use philosophy to help get children thinking.
