This week Pete (@mr_van_w) and John (@jfcatto) are back and a bit more upbeat. Pete did a viva voce and really dug it. 

John discusses Personalised Learning and some peoples worries about privacy of third party companies from Silicon Valley.

Pete raises questions of the conduct of student evaluations of teaching, how much credence we put in student opinions and how those opinions can be implicitly biased.
