The Learning Made Easier Podcast

Did you know I have a podcast? Well, now you do!

Blogs are great, but some people do better with listening. So I’m developing the Learning Made Easier Podcast, which launched on March 4, 2019. Join me and my colleague Dinur Blum as we talk about all kinds of learning-related topics, from time management to being a first-generation student and everything in between.

In each episode, we’ll discuss a learning-related topic – including the research on that topic and our own experiences with it in the classroom and in coaching – and then go into how teachers can use it in their classrooms to help their students and how students can use it to improve their learning. Parents who are interested in how to help their students get better at school can also use these techniques. There’s something for everyone!

You can become a patron of our work at Patreon.com, too!
