For our final episode of this season, Tanya is interviewed by Ben Hallett of Vygo about what drives her, and why Student Experience is her passion, and Learn Grow Become is the vehicle.
Success is defined differently by all of us. We need to be able to tailor to individuals on a large scale. To do that, we need to think beyond automation and self-serve.
In today's episode we are joined by Trish McCluskey of Victoria University discussing the impact their transition to an integrated Students as Partners and Block model have had for their first year students - and how this approach set them up for success during COVID19.
Getting students back on campus is still the key focus for Universities around the world... but the students they will get back are not the same. In today's podcast we talk about the post-COVID brain and how this will impact student outcomes over a longer term, and why "Back to Normal" is not going to happen as easily as we might like.

Today we get to hear from the source - about the 5 senses of success, what changes do we need to adapt to in higher education to survive and thrive, and what are some of the mindset shifts we need to make as academics and administrators...
We discuss the importance of keeping the end goal - career or employment - in mind during our studies. It can be easy to focus on just the learning experience, and yet without an employment outcome at the end the experience is somewhat emptier...
