Recently, I had the opportunity to join OLC Fellow Dr. Kelvin Thompson on the Teaching Online Podcast (TOPcast), one of my favorite digital education podcasts. Whether you’re teaching online, wondering about the best way to approach blended learning, curious about who dwells in digital leadership, or just looking for a good cup of coffee – TOPcast is a great place to start. You’ve heard me talk about Topcast before – and you’ll hear me talk about it again as OLC revitalizes its focus on podcasting in response to our community’s stated interest in podcasts and the place they occupy in professional practice.

Below, find the video of our conversation (Kelvin and I were making our best “very excited about online teaching” faces, obviously) and be sure to click here and check out the full episode page for all of the links and resources mentioned.

What are your favorite educational podcasts? Or just your favorite podcasts in general?

What would you like to see in an OLC Podcast network amplifying podcasts from the OLC Community, and what kinds of supplementary materials would you like to have provided to help you process and learn as you listen?

In the meantime, it was an honor to join Dr. Thompson, and we hope you enjoy the episode!
