IoI Education Forum

“Are you a teacher who is suffering from professional dehydration? If so, you might find the Battle of Ideas to be just the tonic. If won’t provide you with any evidence of ‘best practice’, or even the slightest notion of ‘what works’. It will, however, drench you in controversy and steep you in new ideas. And this may again whet your appetite for teaching.”

Toby Marshall, IoI Education Forum


Optimism versus Pessimism

"Who would choose to go to a session on free will at 10:30 on a Sunday morning? A few hundred of the most engaged, passionate and discursive participants I have encountered. As a neuroscientist on the panel I felt my science was aired and challenged in exemplary fashion. As a passionate believer in engagement I couldn’t have been more delighted."
