Talking D&T

Dr Alison Hardy

Talking D&T is a podcast about design and technology education. Join Alison Hardy as she shares ideas, news and views about D&T and interviews teachers and researchers from the D&T community. The views on this podcast are my own and of those I am interviewing and are not connected to my institution. Much of the content is work in progress. As well as sharing news, views, ideas and opinions about D&T, I use it to explore new ideas and thoughts related to D&T education and my research, which are still embryonic and may change. Consult my publications for a reliable record of my considered throughs on the topic featured in this podcast. Podcast music composed by Chris Corcoran (
