EWF launches innovative podcast series – Learning and Industry Talks
Embracing this new digital channel allows the federation to reach all of its ecosystem, from members to industry partners and research institutions and, beyond that, to reach out to the younger generations who are most at ease with these new technologies
The initial four podcasts, available at https://soundcloud.com/
According to Rute Ferraz, EWF General Manager, "We are always looking at innovative and advanced ways of learning and informing our ecosystem and the broader community of people who are engaged on manufacturing about developments from EWF and its members. As a result, the podcast series we are now starting to use also caters to younger generations by leveraging tools that they use more regularly, while providing the uniqueness and convenience of learning on demand."
Future podcasts will discuss in length separate areas from the system and how the qualification system works. The podcast format has been increasingly adopted by many professionals to learn and stay informed, and it aims to bring more professionals who are needed to fill in many of the required positions in many industries. It follows similar approaches on evolving learning methodologies, from online training to a modular learning and gaming methodologies that have been gradually interwoven into the fabric of the qualification system.
