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’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 David Shull, Head of Handshake UK and Europe. Handshake work to make the student employability space or “bridge to work” better. David and I chat about starting Handshake, the pain points for employers aiming to recruit students, and creating more opportunities for students no matter where they are located. We also have some snippets from Ian Hurd, who was out and about at the recent Ufi Voctech Showcase.
In our final #EdTechEdge episode of 2019, we ask Vice-chancellors and Presidents of Universities what their top concerns were in 2019, what they see coming online in 2025 and beyond, and the role of technology in solving some of higher education’s challenges. You’ll hear about Brexit and International Academic Relations, University and perceived value, Funding and Mental Health and Wellbeing, and the online and physical campus.
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.
This week’s episode is all about Data. We’re in a LIVE discussion with University leaders covering the role of data in teaching, research and student support. We look at how data can be an impetus to positive change, what data blind spots to avoid, and how to make sure that you are asking the right questions to get the best from data.
