The Edtech Podcast: Alternative learning

#129 – Why alternative pathways to learning might not be alternative anymore

What’s in this episode?

This week I’m delighted to announce the Ufi upskilling mini-series on The Edtech Podcast. This series will take a bite-size look at technologies in workplace training which are changing the ways we learn and thrive. This week, we look at how VR is assisting safe and complex training in the nuclear energy sector. What else? The main feature in this week’s episode is a fascinating discussion recorded at our podcast festival on learning opportunities outside of university. A really rich discussion with lots of opportunities for listeners to learn and benefit.
