Teaching Students from the Inside Out with Dr Susie Nyman

Have you ever heard the game ‘Operation’ played live on a podcast? Well, this week you’re in for a treat! Adams Apple, a broken heart, wrenched ankle, butterflies in the stomach are all extracted live. Dr Susie Nyman joins Dale to use the game as a tool to dissect underlying causes for students’ behaviour and understand the multitude of emotions that are going on inside.

‘Teaching students from the inside out’ is a lively discussion of different types of neurodiverse learners and how it is important to find the student agency to give them “voice and choice”. Enabling students to understand what makes them tick and to become more active stakeholders in their own education journey.

Listen to hear fascinating stories of neurodiverse case studies and strategies and solutions Susie has discovered whilst working in the classroom.
