What's in this episode?

This week’s episode is with Daniel Baril, Institute for Lifelong Learning at UNESCO learning. We chat about institutions forced to become agile in the age of coronavirus plus individual or collective approaches to lifelong learning and moving to targeted education intervention. Plus, guest messages from ISTE, UFI Voctech Trust, EverFi, and OpenClassrooms, and insights on distance learning via the “application culture” of China.

Thank you Ufi Voctech Trust for supporting this series and vocational skills development in the UK, through their investments and grants in vocational technology. You can check out their work here.
