UNSW Postgraduate Council (PGC) is excited to announce its 1-hour Weekly Podcast series beginning from 12th May 2021. We will be inviting subject matter experts from the industry and academia to discuss about any trending topics globally on economics, politics, environment, health, technology and much more.
The session initially goes on Zoom followed up by releasing the video and audio versions of the same shared with the audience as a Weekly Podcast. We would target to have a renowned speaker in at-least 2 of the Weekly Podcasts on a Monthly basis. Here is the Zoom link for the students to join the Weekly PGC Podcast: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85079903258...
Some of the key objectives of starting this initiative are as follows:
1. To generate awareness amongst the UNSW postgraduate students of what is happening around the world on one of the major global news trending in that week.
2. Encouraging students to participate in speaking their minds and presenting their views on that topic (avoiding any controversial comments) and thus develop an analytical mindset.
3. Developing a 360 degree mindset to have a discussion on every topic. This skill always plays a major role in all kinds of job roles, no matter whichever organisations the students decide to work in the future.
