This episode features an interview recorded at GESF. This episode is sponsored by Blockcerts and features part one of our mini-series with Canvas by Instructure.

What's in this episode?

This week’s episode is all about digital transformation in Higher Education and we range from Anglia Ruskin University in the UK to the University of Bahrain. 

First up, as part of our new mini-series feature with Canvas by Instructure, I share a conversation with Professor Iain Martin, Vice Chancellor of Anglia Ruskin University.

Our next guest in this week’s episode is Cameron Mirza, Head of Transformation, at The University of Bahrain. We talk about everything from working in the DFE during Tony Blair’s Government, the role of edtech - and specifically online - to support new learning opportunities in the Middle East, and where to pick up the best knowledge on twitter.

What's in this episode?

This week we are in conversation with Sharon Leu, Policy Advisor for the Office for Educational Technology in the USA whose particular focus is increasing access, decreasing cost, and improving outcomes for all students and adult learners in postsecondary education.

I spoke to Sharon during my trip out to SXSWEdu and we cover off topics including how the Office for Edtech are re-imagining and identifying what students look like, how the office can pursue innovation whilst being responsible to the tax paying public, and how new partnerships can be formed across traditional and non-traditional educational players to the benefits of learners.
