#129 – Why alternative pathways to learning might not be alternative anymore This week I'm delighted to announce the Ufi upskilling mini-series on The Edtech Podcast. This series will take a bite-size look at technologies in work-place training which are changing the ways we learn and thrive. This week, we look at how VR is assisting safe and complex training in the nuclear energy sector. What else? The main feature in this week's episode is a fascinating discussion recorded at our podcast festival on learning opportunities outside of University. A really rich discussion with lots of opportunities for listeners to learn and benefit.

#126 – The Power of the Polymath with Dr Jess Wade This episode couldn’t be more timely, whilst CERN throw out an associate for being silly about women in Physics, and whilst a woman in Physics wins the Physics Nobel Prize, Dr Jess Wade takes to the stage to tell us all about the history of polymaths and why we should all be more polymathematical. So throw off the STEM/ARTS armoury and embrace one another!

#125 – Geoff Barton, the General Secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders This week’s episode features my conversation with Geoff Barton, the General Secretary of the Association of School and College Leaders. We talk about what the top priorities are for education leaders, in which situations technology can be a useful leadership tool, and why podcasts are flipping brilliant. This interview was recorded at the Global Education and Skills Forum. This episode also features part two of our mini-series feature on digital transformation with Kenny Nicholl from Canvas. I kick off by asking him about moving on from his VP role to take on the title of GM for EMEA and all that entails. A huge thank you to our guests, listeners and sponsors!
