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.
This week’s episode is all about empowering teachers and Learners.
We hear from a range of school leaders, professional development specialists, and techie teachers, about the conditions to empower teachers and learners. We talk teacher time, flexibility and trust, evidence-based practice relevant to particular school context, and how to best implement tech that supports T & L.
This week I’m in conversation with Shaun Gear from the Ministry of Education in New Zealand to talk about vocational learning reform. We talk about improving standards in vocational learning, how to involve the wider community outside of training providers and employers, and creating hubs of best practice.
In this week’s BONUS episode we throw back to Ian Hurd recording at the graduation of the first cohort of teachers to complete a nationally recognised qualification from the National Centre for Computing Education (NCCE).
Henrietta Palmer, the Learning Solutions Manager at TUI is our guest on this weeks VocTech episode. We talk Artificial Intelligence and corporate learning and development. Enjoy!
