This week we are in conversation with Sharon Leu, Policy Advisor for the Office for Educational Technology in the USA whose particular focus is increasing access, decreasing cost, and improving outcomes for all students and adult learners in postsecondary education.

I spoke to Sharon during my trip out to SXSWEdu and we cover off topics including how the Office for Edtech are re-imagining and identifying what students look like, how the office can pursue innovation whilst being responsible to the tax paying public, and how new partnerships can be formed across traditional and non-traditional educational players to the benefits of learners.
