Livestream event with Oxplore – the University of Oxford’s digital outreach portal – discussing the BIG question “is school the best place to learn?”. Panelists include geologist Dr Brooke Johnson, historian Dr Sian Pooley, and education specialist Dr Susila Davis.
A very special Oxplore livestream as I’m joined by 3 Oxford undergraduates to discuss the biggest of BIG questions in celebration of Oxplore turning 50.
