Why a Critical Thinking Podcast?

Podcasts. It seems like everywhere you turn there is one. I have aspired to start my Podcast for a while now but wanted to make sure I had the time and energy to dedicate to it. I am lucky enough to be involved in an academic community where I have had the pleasure of listening to some great academics speak about various topics to do with learning and teaching. 2022 feels like a good time to launch. A little balance has been restored and the hybrid system of working for some means I have the flexibility to speak to people all over the world.

Can I be a guest?

If you work, study or carry out research in Further or Higher Education and have something to say or share about critical thinking, I would love to hear from you! You can register to be a guest here and I will in touch over the course of the next few months!

When will the Podcast Launch?

I am hoping to launch the podcast in September 2022. This will give me some time to do a few recordings, finalise a name over the summer and learn more and add to my knowledge of podcasting! I very much look forward to the next few months as I work towards the launch! Get in touch if you have any questions.
