About An Educated Guest
We created An Educated Guest podcast to help university administrators, college faculty, and professionals in the postsecondary space stay ahead of the latest trends in higher ed. Having launched in June 2021, the show has been drawing lifelong learners from around the globe to listen to top predictions, perspectives, and innovations from higher education’s most respected thought leaders.
Who Are Our Educated Guests?
We’ve welcomed thought leaders such as university presidents, edtech entrepreneurs, digitally-savvy deans, and social justice advocates to share their expertise on the show. Episode topics have included:
- Why it’s vital to give people second chances
- The benefits of competency-based education
- Creating a continuum from education to employment
- The impact of centering mental health in higher ed
- Innovating affordable, outcome-driven ways to finance tuition
- And many more
