Learning Journeys in Vietnam and Cambodia

Hear about a recent journey to Vietnam and Cambodia. The Learning Works guest is SA educator Louise Bywaters, formerly Director of the SA Centre for Leaders in Education, and earlier a District Superintendent, principal and teacher with the Dept of Education and Children's Services. Louise Bywaters is currently SA Branch President of the Australian College of Educators. Music by Australian composer Carl Vine and Canadian Bill Douglas.

Later in the program, the first of a short series on Rural Men, recorded on location on Yorke Peninsula. The series looks at older men, these days that seems to mean 45+, and how they live and work and retire in rural SA.
