This week our guest is Dr Chris Bonfield, a technology enhanced learning manager from the University of Bath. Chris is a once medical medieval historian-turned future gazer, who’s research explores education 4.0 around the globe.
Chris’s experience gives him a unique perspective about the potential that technology has to enrich the educational experience. We chat all about his findings and what the UK can learn from the rest of the world, what’s driving the change in employment and how higher education can react to industry 4.0.
This podcast mentions learning and teaching reimagined, a sector-wide initiative led by Jisc, Emerge Education, Universities UK, and Advance HE. It was formed in response to the rapid move to online learning and teaching prompted by COVID-19, and seeks to envision a digitally-enabled future for higher education.
Its flagship report - A new dawn for higher education?– has been created with more than 1,000 representatives from UK universities.
