Education is timeless. Podcasts are new, exciting, and increasingly popular ways of learning. Do educational podcasts exist? Yes, they do! In higher education, podcasts help to create new spaces and communities that help to facilitate asynchronous learning and to increase student retention. But, why aren’t they more widely used?

In this episode, we’ll be looking at how this specific medium of communication can be used more effectively by students and teachers alike. Meanwhile, we introduce a new open educational resource  to be published in a few days— the Classic Management Murder Podcast Series which is an interactive format to acquiring new knowledge about the main ideas of the classical management schools.
