Ed Tech on the Go
Our new Campus Technology Insider podcast explores current trends and issues impacting technology leaders in higher education.
OVER THE SUMMER, Campus Technology embarked on an exciting new project: creating a series of audio stories designed for on-the-go listening. In other words, producing a monthly podcast. Our new Campus Technology Insider podcast features interviews with ed tech experts and practitioners, all sharing their insights, ideas and experiences in the world of higher education technology.
The podcast format is particularly appealing because it enables us to have engaging conversa- tions about ed tech and dive into current trends and issues in a timely way. A few of our recent episodes include:
