In this final episode of our ‘The Edge: Innovation and Intelligence Imperative’ series, we celebrate “Change-Makers in Higher Ed”, speaking to three leaders who have worked to implement new ways of doing things in their own University communities.
In this episode, we hear about one organisation trying to embed personal learning budgets into the workplace, and draw together the best learning resources in one playlist. You’ll hear from Rajeeb Dey, Founder & CEO at Learnerbly. PLUS the Coronavirus, online learning and remote working with listener thoughts from Beijing to Cardiff and everything in-between.
First up, our FE reporter Ian Hurd, is out chatting to sector colleagues at Bridgend College about getting on that digital starting-line and beyond.
The second part of the episode is with the team at How Do I?. Taryl and Tom talk to us about accessibility, instruction and learning technology in the workplace as we throw back to an interview from the tail end of last year.
In this episode we pick apart University and Industry, exploring learning economics in an age of perpetual upskilling, the unique strengths of University and Industry respectively, and to what extent established Universities are limited by how they can evolve through regulation and red tape.
In this week’s episode we are in conversation with Cath Brown, a lifelong learner and President of Open University Students Association, talking all about better connecting students and employers. Plus, Virtual Reality at Solihull College and University Centre.
This episode was recorded LIVE at #Bett2020 and is all about skills. We take a top-level view of the skills agenda both here and internationally, looking into why there is a disconnect between education and skills requirements and where the UK stands on solving this issue.
What is innovation? How can it be measured and sustained? How can a culture of innovation be developed, and what examples of pedagogical and technological innovation have come to the fore in recent years? We speak to entrepreneurs, ecosystem developers, academics and educators about the role of innovation and hear about how innovation is evolving in virtual reality in Singapore, career technical education in the US, STEAM education in Belgium, and real-world problem-solving in Bhutan. Plus, why educators are inherent innovators and more about the edtech innovation testbed here in the U.K. Phew!
This #VocTechPodcast episode throws back to our LIVE recording at Dare to Learn 2019 in Helsinki, Finland. It was recorded during the same week as HEL we can!, an event on Boosting Skills & Continuous Learning in Europe. Listen in to our panel of adult education and corporate training providers, teachers, and eco-system supporters.
This week, we are talking about all things student experience. In an effort to dispel the myth of the “traditional student’ we talk to a range of guests about how Universities are adapting to diverse student needs, what support systems should not be taken for granted, and the dual role of tutor and technology in helping students to achieve.
