What’s in this episode?
This week, we throwback to a past recording with John Brindle, a learning technologist at the University of Liverpool Management School. John 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.
Plus, some reflection on last week’s episode about building back better.

Thank you to the Ufi Voctech Trust & Ufi Ventures
Our aim is to help improve vocational skills in the UK’s workforce by funding digital solutions for vocational learning. We only fund activity that is ‘scalable’ through technology, ie projects that use digital methods to widen access to vocational learning. While digital learning solutions are potentially open to all, we are especially keen to assist digital projects which involve post-school age vocational learners that have failed to be engaged by the education system. Contact: email@example.com, Head of Communications, Ufi Voctech Trust.
Ufi Ventures offers early-stage ventures finance and support that draws on the depth of Ufi’s experience in developing digital technologies for skills needed for work. We can invest from £150,000 up to £1m as equity or debt into early-stage companies who share our mission and meet our investment criteria. We are keen to collaborate and co-invest with other value-aligned investors interested in the opportunity presented by the changing nature of work and skills. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
