Educators want their academic research to reach as many people as possible, particularly educational practitioners. However, research findings are often published in various scholarly journals and are limited to people who subscribe to, look for or read scholarly research. A podcast is an excellent communication tool to promote your research among a lay audience who usually would not be exposed to it.
