What's in this episode?

In this week's episode, we are in collaboration with EdSurge and publishing the first of a three-part series EdSurge have developed to explore the nuances of adult lifelong learners and what sparks their return to University.

There are 36 million Americans who have earned some college credit, but not an actual degree. More colleges than ever are trying to help these students return to finish what they started. But so far, colleges are better at attracting these learners than helping them get across the finish line. Why is it so hard? What do these students want? What challenges do they face? And what strategies seem to be working?

Listen in for this first peek into how life events and external forces often challenge our well-laid educational plans and what become the motivational forces for us completing University as returning adult learners?

Questions in my head, as we venture through the series. 

  • Will our future education be less about finishing and more about dipping in as and when?
  • Will we get over the to do list of completing our college degree?
  • And how can technology (as well as intrinsic motivation) help keep us on track?

A shout out to WorkTripp and Lumina Foundation for supporting this episode, EdSurge for the amazing journalism, and great to have the learner voice front and centre in this mini-series. As always, do let us know what you think.
