In this episode I am joined (in-person) by Puiyin Wong and Alexandra Mihai with the dilemma that we have all come across – how to get more colleagues engaged in the development of their “digital skills”. Spoiler alert! One answer is food 😉

We were all in London to attend the RIDE conference.

I was joined on this episode by the following brilliant people:

Alexandra Mihai

Puiyin Wong

Puiyin Wong (@Puiyin) is a senior learning designer in a UK university, a PhD researcher at Lancaster University and a Trustee of ALT (Association for Learning Technology). She has worked in the intersection of creative arts education and digital technology since 2006. Puiyin’s current research focuses on how technology can enable and support the development of learning networks, subsequently how learners can benefit from the dissemination of knowledge in these networks. She is also interested in exploring the interplay and tension between pedagogies and technology: does one element have to be more important than the other? She is totally partial to anything Threshold Concepts related. Puiyin has founded a successful webinar series, #TELresearchers, where respected TEL (and sometimes HE) researchers are invited to talk about their research journeys.

Puiyin’s cat Patch is her co-pilot in all of her adventures.
