Track 3: The Vision Established – Dr Victor Couch AM, Foundation Chairman of the Catholic College of Education Sydney, reflecting on the establishment of Catholic Teachers College.

Track 4: Age of Change – Dr Victor Couch reflecting on the transition to Catholic College of Education Sydney.

The Audio Pens will also assist teachers as they lead their students into a deeper exploration of the importance of education.
