The Education Research Reading Room (ERRR Podcast) brings together passionate teachers and educators with inspiring education researchers and thought leaders for engaging and informative discussion on key issues in the education space. Each episode we contact a prominent figure in the education landscape and ask them ‘If every teacher and educator in the world could spend an hour reading your work, what would you want them to read?’. Interested teachers and educators then read this piece in preparation for a live event with the author to discuss and explore the topic in more depth. The subsequent conversation becomes the Education Research Reading Room Podcast (ERRR Podcast).

Love the podcast! Your episode with John Hollingsworth on explicit instruction completely revolution slides my teaching. It has been extremely transformative to see the progress my students are making after implementing just a few of the strategies mentioned in that episode.
Episode with Professor Mazur
I listened to the episode with Professor Mazur and was bothered by some of the comments.
When Prof. Mazur explained how he wondered why his students weren’t learning. One of his choices was that his students were dumb. It’s horrible that an educator would have that thought; and then to publicly admit it, wow! The host seemed to agree when he stated that it was not reasonable to think that the students were dumb because they attended Harvard. Why would the host entertain this comment, let alone follow it up? Did the host not remember the episode with Dr. Anita Archer? Stop blaming students for their failure to learn. Also what do intelligence and Harvard have to do with each other?
My second concern is the host’s reference to other institutions as less elite than Harvard. Just why? Why is Harvard the standard? Why even make the comment? It had absolutely nothing to do with the host’s wondering about how to get students to do pre-work prior to a course meeting. The Harvard students weren’t doing the pre-work either!
When this episode started, I had the thought to discontinue listening. I wish I had followed that thought so that I would not have heard the disparaging comments. I will no longer listen to this podcast.
Perfect format to learn about edu research
I have been looking for a long time (more than a year) for a convenient way to access high-quality summary of educational research while driving or before sleeping. I have tried many approaches, such as listening to YouTube or online courses from the phone. But it was so hard to find a channel that discuss theories and findings in depth and systematically. Luckily I finally reach this channel on podcast. Thank you so much Ollie. This is exactly the thing I am looking for.
