But, I also know that, as the landscape of education changes rapidly, it’s hard to keep up. One easy trick? Podcasts. Sneak in some quick professional development as you grade papers, lesson plan, grocery shop, or drive home; sit back and relax with some of our favorite adult and higher education podcasts:
