Dr Emily Nordmann
In episode 45 we chat with Deputy Director of Education and Senior Lecturer in Psychology (at The University of Glasgow), Emily Nordmann. We have an all round fun catch with Emily about her research into the relationship between technology and learning, especially related to the application of lecture capture and how it can be used as an effective study tool for students from widening participation backgrounds. She also has a cool blog which has a post on the psychology of swearing, so we f***king definitely had to talk about that (without swearing, which was actually really hard).

Professor John Paul Leach
In episode 44 we have a chat to JP Leach who is a Professor of Clinical Neurology and Honorary Professor within The School of Medicine Dentistry and Nursing at The University of Glasgow. JP is the head of undergraduate medical programmes at The University, so naturally we get stuck into conversations about about medical education, curriculum development, neuro anatomy and of course, the one thing everyone wants to talk to him about - his background in stand up comedy!

In episode 43 I have a great discussion with Mia Clarke who has been occupying the role of VP Education at The University of Glasgow for the last year. She has been at the heart of policy making - respresenting the student learning experience and all academic issues on the Student's Representative Council. Here we have a wonderfully honest, open and refreshing chat about her background, passions, influences and achievements at Glasgow. We have a good laugh along the way as well - this one was an absolute joy.

We chat to her about creative learning, The Scholarship of Learning and Teaching Network... where she even has her own (excellent) podcast with a similar name to this one (ouch!).

Dr Jason Organ Part 1
For our 40th episode we have a chat with Dr Jason Organ from Indiana University over in the USA. Jason is an Associate Professor in anatomy, cell biology and physiology contributing to a lot of teaching, but also finding the time to pursue his research interests in brittle bone disease. He is Co-Editor and Writer of the Public Library of Science (PLOS) Science Communication Blog. In 2018, Jason received the prestigious AAA Basmajian Award for excellence in teaching gross anatomy and outstanding accomplishments in biomedical research and scholarship in education. One of his main areas of interest is science communication and he has disseminated a fair bit on this topic. Jason and I are old pals, so this one takes a few diversions here and there. So much so in fact, we had to split the conversation in two parts! Enjoy part 1 for now.
