Existing Podcast Resources as Supplemental Content

Podcasting is a great way to provide additional materials for students to allow them to go deeper on certain topics, particularly ones where there isn’t enough time in class. You may also wish to provide review materials for difficult topics. Students can listen to them as often as needed and review specific parts to clarify.

You may not even need to create your own podcasts. There’s a wealth of great material available online that others have created. Check out the examples below. They’re just a quick snapshot of what you might find.
