Keith & Matt Witherow

Education is changing. Not only do the things we learn need to change, but the way we learn needs to change.

In the latest episode of the OMPodcast, Keith Smyth  (Android Team Lead) talks to Professor Beverley Oliver (Deputy Vice-Chancellor – Education) from Deakin University, Matt Witherow (Final year software engineering student/Android developer/Course leader and head tutor of mobile development) from RMIT, and Michael Dalic (Business Development Manager and part-time Masters student), about their views on the role of mobile in education.

The panel discuss everything from MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) to Digital Badging. We learn about how universities are addressing the need for change and issue of access, the impact of large enterprise systems on an institution’s ability to adapt to new technologies, and why software engineering should be a core subject at school.
