Student Social Linked Data
In this episode, Sophie Bailey is in conversation with Dr. Gerd Kortemeyer at ETH Zurich - one of the world’s most prestigious science and technology universities - talking about the concept of Social Linked Data otherwise known as SOLID. In the context of Higher Education, we talk about students taking ownership of their data and having a learner identity that permeates their whole learning lives.
What Matters in Edtech: Wellbeing
This episode is all about learner wellbeing, and we are covering how to define and measure wellbeing in the context of developing and using impactful edtech to support learner wellbeing and, therefore, learner success.
How is impact investment changing and what does it mean for education?
In this episode, we chart an exciting story that starts back in the mid-2000s and culminates this week with UK-facing vocational learning & technology charity Ufi VocTech Trust announcing the investment of its £50m+ investment portfolio, using the UN Sustainable Development Goals to support the best thematic alignment of investment with Ufi’s mission, whilst meeting the charity’s financial commitments, with Credit Suisse appointed as investment service provider. What does this mean for 'ed"? Listen in!
What Matters in Edtech: Leadership
This episode is all about leadership and is a timely reflection on how we can bolster our resolve and communicate a shared vision during radically changing times. In short, it’s all about people and you don’t have to be an automaton, in fact, you’re allowed to be yourself to lead effectively.
Recruitment & Admissions
What's in this episode?
We talk about the complex nature of reaching, recruiting and retaining students in the age of COVID-19 and beyond.
You'll hear about;
Ambitions to reduce the complexity of the admissions process
Extension of virtual open days and events to broaden student intake/and widen participation
Multi-channel approaches to the now complex matrix of student intake and comms across different countries, different pedagogical approaches and different time zones. .
