The EdUp Experience

By: Derek Newton

If you have not checked out or been plugged into the wealth of education podcasts currently being produced and distributed, you are missing out on where the conversation is – literally.

There are too many to follow them all, of course. At last count, someone told me there were more than 120 active education podcasts – by teachers, investors, about tests, students, policy, international and local. Whatever your education area is, there’s probably a podcast about it featuring experts discussing the news, notes and names that you need to know.

One of my favorites is the The EdUp Experience – a fun, insightful and relentless must-listen show of higher education leaders, movers, entrepreneurs and watchers. Notably, EdUp has also managed to snag an obscene number of college presidents to join the show.

I asked the good folks over at EdUp to highlight a few of their best episodes specifically for EdTech Chronicle and they had three.

Really, every show I’ve heard has been great – fun, funny and significant. And those aren’t things you can say about higher education very often.

Here are there three suggestions to get you started:

15: Scott Pulsipher, President, Western Governors University

20: Dr. David Harpool, President, Northcentral University

25: Dr. Gregory Fowler, President, Global Campus at SNHU

Hope you enjoy them, and the show, as much as I do.
