Flip the System Australia was published in 2018, and brings together perspectives on education policy and practice in response to issues such as increasingly top-down education reform and outside interests influencing educational policy. This episode presents content from TeachMeet Flip the System, which was held at SHORE school on 29 March, 2019, and served as an unofficial launch of the book.
From the website: “Based in the unique Australian context, this book situates Australian education policy, research and practice within the international education narrative. It argues that professionals within schools should be supported, empowered and welcomed into policy discourse, not dictated to by top-down bureaucracy. It advocates for a flipping, flattening and democratising of the education system, in Australia and around the world.”

TER Live presents TeachMeet Science and technology, which was held at the Australian Museum in Sydney on Tuesday, the 8th of November, 2016. This event was different to the usual TeachMeet format, in that it pitted teams of teachers against each other in competition to develop lessons that included technology in a cross-curricular learning experience. The event was organised by Kathleen O’Rourke and the Macquarie University Education Society.
As part of the 2016 Vivid Sydney Festival, Intel held #GirlsInTech as part of the Vivid Ideas presentations, with research and panel discussions about girls in STEM subjects and the challenges – both personal and systemic – that need to be overcome to improve the number of women participating in tech fields such as coding and engineering.
This TER live episode presents the entire event with minimal editing.
