    EduTip 1: Don't make them read and listen at the same time.

    Welcome to EduTips, a side project of the Cult of Pedagogy podcast where I share one quick tidbit of educational research, teaching ideas, classroom management strategies, or sometimes just a quick story. This first EduTip is DON'T MAKE THEM READ AND LISTEN AT THE SAME TIME. This is a mistake I see so many teachers, speakers, and other presenters make, and it's so easy to fix!

New way of teaching

You have singlehandedly changed my whole approach to teaching. I love the well-explained podcasts covering such diverse aspects of our complex profession, the Jump Start Tech course which is getting me back in the game with modern teaching practices and tools but, above all, you have inspired me to be better in the classroom. I love my job, it is my passion and connecting with others who clearly want to be better too is inspiring. Thank you.

Highly recommended!

I have learnt so much from Jennifer Gonzalez’ cult of pedagogy series. She mainly covers primary, middle and secondary education, but her topics are extremely useful to me as a higher education teacher. Her podcasts are super professional, easy to listen to and informative, with lots of interesting interviews. It is extra impressive that she gives the information in a multimodal way, so you can look up the transcripts and resources on her blog and website after you have listened to the podcast. I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough!

Absolutely jam-packed with useful ideas

I'm UK-based but having found Jennifer's podcast (via her youtube channel) it as been a top podcast on my playlist. I eagerly await each episode (and have saved various previous editions as they have some great ideas. Very realistic and useful.
