Drs. Solen Feyissa and Senenge T. Andzenge have launched 'Jumping In,' a commentary podcast series on teaching, learning, technology and development.
Feyissa, an academic technologist at the University of Minnesota, said, "On 'Jumping In podcast' we go in depth on every aspect of the field of learning technologies and what makes it an important topic in any discussion happening in learning spaces around the world. Our conversations have ranged from the controversial to the most popular."
Andzenge, also an academic technologist at the University of Minnesota, added, "We have spent nearly five decades working with teams and organizations to support learning and growth through thoughtful design. In each episode, we lend our expertise to a variety of topics and areas of promise at the intersection of education, adult and professional learning, and technology."
Previous 'Jumping In' podcast series topics have included open universities in the African continent; the One Health Workforce project and why multidisciplinary initiatives like it are valuable in the fight against COVID-19 and other zoonotic diseases; opportunities the COVID-19 pandemic presents for online universities; and the Learning Technologies Media Lab at UMN, which was an incubator for the development of thought, theory, and educational technologies.
