There is nothing good about the global pandemic we have all lived - and are living through - including, of course the way it has been handled by our 'leaders'. And yet we have all learned some things in lockdown. Some of these things are to do with life in general, and how we interact with each other, but many of them also tell us something about teaching, both now and in the future. That's what I would like to address in this talk.

Is there such a recipe for success? In this talk, teachers will be given some ideas, strategies and have their attention drawn to the advantages of this particular teaching context.
