Episode 004: Preparing students for their future, not our past with special guest Helen O’Sullivan

Hello and welcome to episode four of the Learning & Teaching @ Newcastle University podcast.

There is a transcript available.

In this episode Suzanne Hardy from the Learning and Teaching Development Service here at Newcastle University speaks with Chair of the Association for Learning Technology, and DVC at Chester University Professor Helen O’Sullivan.

Helen recently delivered the keynote session at our Newcastle University Art of the Possible week. Helen’s session was called ‘Preparing students for their future, not our past: How the pandemic pushed us past the tipping point into education 4.0’ and was an insightful look at how education has changed since March 2020.

In this episode, Suzanne and Helen have a wonderful conversation over Zoom digging into and unpacking Helen’s session. They discussed how the Covid 19 pandemic really changed the landscape of education, and in some cases for the better.

If you are a member of staff or a student at Newcastle University, you will be able to view Helen’s keynote session.
