This week, you will hear from Chris Headleand, the Director of Teaching and Learning for the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln in the UK, about how he developed an innovative way to keep students and staff connected to the University of Lincoln during lockdown. We chat about the opportunity for Universities to really reinvigorate their teaching and learning, student centricity and the need to take the reality of local lockdowns and needs of shielding students seriously.
We throwback this week to a past recording with a learning technologist who offers up lots of useful frameworks for those who might be finding themselves thrown into the world of learning technology and online learning pedagogy and all the head-scratching that entails.
In conversation are an insight and data specialist on the new economy, an investor in vocational learning technology, and a specialist in supporting executive leadership and teams development on building back better. Plus, tea slurps, baby cries and computer dings, in amongst the gems about specific training to working online, more creative online working tools, and supporting employees wellbeing with all the change hitting us at present.
In this episode, we focus on the Middle East and Africa; you’ll hear about the role of tech and community in supporting refugee learning, careers opportunities for girls, flexible working and teacher professional development, and truly hybrid online learning. We are in Dubai, Oman, Kenya and across the UAE.
Listen in to this conversation between friends in the online learning and edtech community as they work out what the new normal might look like across schools, colleges and Universities.
This episode is all about how economies and industry are transitioning into a new world of work. We throwback to a recording from last year with Jane Oates from WorkingNation where we talk about everything from massive investment in training employees, how working cultures are not interchangeable, and why supporting each other through change is important. Plus, an update from our listeners on how teaching and learning is going now that we are 2 months on from living with Coronavirus.
We throwback to a recording with Dr. Peter Shukie, Academic Group Leader, Creative and Digital at University Centre Blackburn College. Peter was the 2019 National Winner of the Festival of Learning Social Impact award, and in this episode, we talk about connecting learning with purpose. This episode is for anyone interested in the evolution of MOOCs and the return to smaller cohorts of online learners affecting change in real-life actions.
The Bett podcast series, “What Matters in Edtech”, is BACK, this time with a focus on global education. In our first episode, we focus on Asia and the current challenges and insights from this region.
We speak to a range of educators and partners in the region to talk about their approach to teaching and learning both before and during the Coronavirus crisis.
This week’s episode is with Daniel Baril, Institute for Lifelong Learning at UNESCO learning. We chat about institutions forced to become agile in the age of coronavirus plus, individual or collective approaches to lifelong learning and moving to targeted education intervention. We also have guest messages from ISTE, UFI Voctech Trust, EverFi, and OpenClassrooms, and insights on distance learning via the “application culture” of China.
This week we throw-back to a “pre-coronavirus” recording with Hector MacAulay, Managing Director at international infrastructure and manufacturing company Balfour Beatty. We chat about talent pipeline, technology and training and why getting up at the crack of dawn in your first teenage job sets you up for life.
