Media Zoo hosts new CEO of the Higher Education Academy

The Media Zoo at 103 Princess Road East was pleased to host the visit of Professor Craig Mahoney, the new CEO of the Higher Education Academy.

Professor Mahoney took an hour out of his busy schedule to meet the animals and learn about the four Zoos in the three environments.

I was happy to explain some the ways in which the Zoo helps colleagues at the University in their teaching, primarily through the introduction of learning technologies into their courses.

Using the four quadrants of the Zoo, Professor Mahoney was able to see how innovation researched at Beyond Distance becomes embedded in the institution, especially as the Media Zoo is a central component of the ¬†University’s Learning Innovation Strategy.

We’ve been promised another visit from the new CEO soon!
