What's in this episode?

In this episode, we seek to explore how the student experience is being created and supported in 2020 at our Higher Education institutions. In conversation with leaders and students from across EMEA and the U.S, we ask;

  • How is the University experience stacking up vs. student expectations? 
  • How are Universities adapting to support careers readiness in 2020?
  • How are students co-creating the student experience they want to see?
  • And, What can Universities do more of?

You can follow the conversation using #EdtechEdge and #edtechpod.

Welcome to the latest episode of the GLOBAL edition of our What Matters in Edtech Series, our podcast collaboration with Bett. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

A big shout out to Bett for supporting this series, to Aruba for supporting this episode.

What's in this episode?

Innovation can sometimes feel esoteric. Yet, without it where would we be? Endlessly plodding perhaps… 

In this episode, we are talking innovation with guests from Dubai, Brazil, Singapore and the U.K.

Expect ideas on how to build the team around you to take new ideas forward, how to create the space for innovation, and ways to measure impact, including, “how much time have I saved?”
