Do you teach with podcasts?   Leave a comment

If you use podcasts for teaching economics, you may find a new resource useful. Check out the new ‘Listening to Podcasts for Learning‘ page for tips to share with your students who may be used to listening to podcasts for pleasure, but could use some guidance in listening to learn. We also have a downloadable PowerPoint slide deck available for you to share in your classes or on your learning platform. Thanks to contributors and Emmanuel College students Olivia Fiorini and Eliana Falleur for putting these resources together.
