Podcasts (Under Construction)

Want to learn while you listen? 

On this page you can explore some podcasts recommended by the TPLD team for learning more about Instructional Design or Learning & Development. Podcasts are a great way to learn (and a great way to create learning content!). Listening to L&D podcasts can give you a better sense of the challenges faced by learning professionals and the day to day job, the skills needed, or the tools and processes used! Many former teachers found podcasts extremely helpful to their transition.
