What's in this episode?

Hello everyone! 

Thank you for being patient as we took a break over the Summer and prepared for our next season. 
 
This week we throwback to a second recording from this year’s WISE Summit in Paris. In this episode you’ll hear from two speakers on the topic of the future of learning; 
 
Heidi Harju-Luukkainen, Professor, Nord University 
Angel Investor, Khaled Helioui 
 
We look at the impact of genetic disposition and geographic lotteries on learning, on the double edged sword of international rankings and the problem with coercion as the basis of learning. We explore how to measure impact without creating norms and exclusivity. 

Stay in touch and have a great week!

What's in this episode?

Hello everyone!

 In this episode, we’re travelling back to (the) Future Edtech conference where a panel of Higher Education leaders discuss how to develop the team that delivers change in the context of institutional capability and leadership development for the "21st Century University". You will hear about how saying no to change is embracing the status quo, academic and professional services collaboration as central towards bringing about change, and why downloading board papers digitally shouldn’t be beyond the University SLT. We also think about value and the tussle between liberal education and University as a bridge to work. 

Stay in touch and have a great week!
