What's in this episode?

"You can do a tonne online, but it would be great to have a beer." 

In the first of our new conversations making sense of the world with Covid, I speak to the CEO of 2U, Chip Paucek. We talk about why the University campus isn’t going to disappear anytime soon, what makes remote learning high-quality, and what it's like to experience the highs and lows of being an edtech CEO and entrepreneur. 

Plus, we made it to episode 200. Thanks for listening everyone.

What's in this episode?

This week’s episode is all about home learning. We’re in conversation with school leaders and digital leads, Edtech Demonstrator coordinators, editors and edtech companies taking stock of the past weeks experience in the UK and how we might prepare and improve as the Autumn term approaches, with local lockdowns also looming. 

Plus, the need for better data, and a quick message from the author of our latest guest blog post: ‘Teaching through the pandemic – A Brit’s view from the US.” 

Thank you for listening! Stay busy, stay safe, and keep smiling.

What's in this episode?

In this week's episode, you'll hear from the Director of Teaching and Learning for the School of Computer Science at the University of Lincoln in the UK.

Chris Headleand developed an innovative way to keep students and staff connected to the University of Lincoln during lockdown, by creating a virtual campus called Lincoln Island which has been downloaded over 8000 times. We chat to Chris about the opportunity for Universities to really reinvigorate their teaching and learning, student centricity and the need to take the reality of local lockdowns and needs of shielding students seriously.

Thanks again for listening and have a wonderful week.

What's in this episode?

This week's episode is all about how economies and industry are transitioning into a new world of work. We throwback to a recording from last year with Jane Oates from WorkingNation where we talk about everything from massive investment in training employees, how working cultures are not interchangeable, and why supporting each other through change is important. These are all subjects that have been thrust into the foreground by Coronavirus in a way that has made us sit up and listen more urgently than any discussion on automation has before.

Plus, an update from our listeners on how teaching, learning and remote work have developed a few months on from operating in a world with Coronavirus.

Our podcast collaboration with Bett, What Matters in Edtech, is back, this time with a focus on global education. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

What's in this episode?

In our first episode, we focus on Asia and the current challenges and insights from this region. Asia was the first region to see the impact of COVID-19 on the education system and school closures.

We speak to a range of educators and partners in the region to talk about their approach to teaching and learning both before and during the Coronavirus crisis.

What tools and pedagogies are they utilising to best serve their students in the here and now, and also prepare local youth for the connected digital world in the long-term? And just how has Coronavirus expedited or frustrated these strategies in the region.

You’ll also hear about robust technology developed to take on one of the harshest environments out there – space - and how this is being adapted to fulfil large data research projects in this current time.
