Season 1, Episode 52 (24th August 2020)

A whole school approach to education for good citizenship - Book Launch Panel 3 Part 2

Welcome to Episode 52.

This is the sixth of the extended podcast episodes over the next few weeks, where you will be able to listen to the replays of the For Flourishing’s Sake book launch events.

Today, I bring you the second half of the third panel discussion of the book launch extravaganza.  This panel was recorded live on 18th June, the day the Kindle edition of For Flourishing’s Sake was published.  The paperback was published on Friday 21st August and the fourth panel was aired that day live.  You will be able to listen back to it over the next two weeks, but if you can’t wait, head over to the Book Launch Extravaganza page to watch the replay!

So, back to today’s replay of part two of panel 3.  I chaired the panel myself and the panellists were:

Ian Flintoff, Positive Psychology-based Education Coach/Consultant/Trainer at Affirm Consulting (UK)

Serdar Ferit, Co-CEO & Creative Director at Lyfta (Finland & UK)

Katrina Mankani, Director of Positive Education, Sunmarke School and Regent International School (Dubai, UAE)

Julie Goldstein, Principal at Hartford Magnet Trinity College Academy (USA)

In this second half of the panel discussion, the panellists shared their thoughts and experiences, with examples, of elements required for a whole school approach to positive education.  They particularly focused on the important role that staff training and leadership have to play. And finally, they shared how it feels when you get it right - when it goes well - and their hopes and dreams for the future of education.

You can watch back all the panel video recordings here.
