Entertaining and educational!

This is a fantastic podcast designed to be informative and entertaining. I feel like I’m sitting at a table with other educators and chatting about new ways to approach our material. Well done!

So long! Lecture breakers doesn’t follow own advice

These are supposed to help you change things up in a college classroom - lectures turned interactive, more thoughtful discussion...yet, these hour long podcasts are waaay too long. Take your own advice! After 15 minutes you’ve lost me.
