Contributed by the hive mind of academic twitter, here are HE’s greatest hits from 2020

In a time-poor world, where the articles on our to-read lists keep piling up; here is a neat solution: a list of the top podcasts and blogposts in higher education in 2020. Compiled using the hive mind of academic twitter, this list, #HEgreatesthits2020 puts together some of the key and emerging issues that are being discussed in education circles across the world from surveillance to well-being to pedagogy.

Over 10 days in December, we received nominations from all over the world. The requirements were that it had to be a podcast or blogpost about higher education, published in 2020, and freely accessible. Thanks to all those who contributed and participated – your suggestions and likes have unearthed some real gems!

We have highlighted six nominations – the entry with the most likes and nominations, and five others that have been chosen by the LSE HE Blog editorial team. The full list of nominations appears at the end.

Against Surveillance Teach-in

An online video teach-in on the pernicious pervasiveness of surveillance-based tools in higher education, that doubled as a fundraiser for Ian Linkletter’s defence against Proctorio. At over three hours, it may seem long, but it’s split into six parts – a panel discussion with Maha Bali, Cory Doctorow, Benjamin Doxtdator, Chris Gilliard, sava saheli singh, and Brenna Clarke Gray; followed by interviews with Jesse Stommel and Audrey Watters; and finally, an appearance by Ian Linkletter.
