Welcome to the third 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 HP for supporting this episode, and to our fantastic guests for making this episode so insightful.

What's in this episode?

This week, we are chatting to Bett’s Global Education Council, getting to grips with the council’s manifesto set in January and the way COVID has impacted the manifesto ideals and how urgently they are implemented. Our guests reflect on how the pause given by the pandemic has allowed an opportunity to teach back better and how this can be achieved.

You can follow the conversation using #edtechpod and #Bett2021.

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.
