What's in this episode?

In this episode, we seek to explore how the student experience is being created and supported in 2020 at our Higher Education institutions. In conversation with leaders and students from across EMEA and the U.S, we ask;

  • How is the University experience stacking up vs. student expectations?
  • How are Universities adapting to support careers readiness in 2020?
  • How are students co-creating the student experience they want to see?
  • And, What can Universities do more of?

You can follow the conversation using #EdtechEdge and #edtechpod.
