This is a great podcast. Each episode features a guest that is a leader of learning in some capacity. The topics are short and sweet but cover so much ground. A must listen for any school leader or teacher leader.
Dan I love what you are doing. The topics are perfect for educators who are currently leaders in their buildings/districts as well as for those who want to take on more of a leadership role. I love that the podcast episodes come in at under 30 minutes so it is easy to find time to listen. Keep doing what you are doing!
Resources that Inform All Professions
Dan Kreiness's podcast, Leader of Learning, offers resources that inform all professions, not just education.
From Dr. Will to Mark Crowley, Val Lewis to Matt Miller, Dan and his guests raise thought provoking ideas and discuss meaningful solutions to issues that individuals may face as they work towards success.
As an educator, these 30 minute podcasts give me hope and remind me of the power of sharing pedagogical and leadership best practices. But as I discuss the podcasts with my sister and my friends, who are not in education, we have come to harness the ideas that transcend the educational space, which allows us to celebrate the leader in all of us.
