Fancy a teaching podcast? Then look right here...

The Tes Podagogy podcast is three years old – here are all the podcasts so far

Tes Reporter

Education podcast

On 5 September 2017, Tes launched a new podcast. The idea was to try and connect research to practice, to shine a light on academic discourse and force those involved to apply it to practical application.

We had no long-term plan, we had no guests lined up beyond the first two and, as host, I had no experience with podcasts. What could go wrong?

It turned out, a lot went right.

Education podcasts

Over the past three years, we have published 78 podcasts, welcomed some of the most esteemed figures in academia and collected thousands of listeners along the way.

For this season (our 11th) we have also recorded our podcasts on video so you can see the discussion as it happened, as well as hear it (see below)

We also have a shiny platform of our own, so if you just want pedagogy podcasts from Tes, you have that option (but please do check out our news, FE, and international podcasts, too). You can subscribe by clicking here

We are adding a short podcast this year where we discuss the issues raised in the cover feature of the magazine, so an extra podcast per week.

So please do subscribe, comment, discuss, give us feedback. Tell us who you would like on. Tell us topics you want covered. And delve into our archive, which looks a bit like this (in order of appearance):
