We interviewed Erkoo Soiuntu, professor at University of Eastern Finland, for our regluar podcast on innovation in education. Erkoo is a partner in BestEDU - Good practice in education during Covid project, which is funded by Erasmus+ the Erasmus+ EU programme for education, training, youth and sport.

Thorsteinn Surmeli (the host of the podcast) met with Erkoo during the first project meeting, held in Denmark in early October 2021. He uses data from student surveys to improve both teaching and student engagement. After chatting with Erkoo during the project meeting in Denmark, Thorsteinn grabbed his podcasting equipment and interviewed Erkoo about his approach in teaching and how he has developed flipped learning since he started incorporating it into his teaching back in 2014.
