Research Center Podcasts Now on iTunes

Louisville, KY

The National Research Center for Career and Technical Education (NRCCTE), funded by the Office of Vocational and Adult Education at the U.S. Department of Education, announced today that its popular research podcasts are now available on iTunes. 

The podcasts are directly tied to the NRCCTE research agenda and consist of short interviews with researchers from around the country. During the
podcasts, the researchers share an overview of their respective studies, why the research is important, and what classroom educators or administrators might be able to do with the research findings.

“We know that classroom teachers and administrators are pressed for time,” said Center Director James R. Stone III. “We have designed these podcasts to provide quick bits of useful information that will keep career and technical educators informed and also give them ideas on how they might be able to use the research findings.”

Educators interested in subscribing to these podcasts can go to iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=3070

) and click the “Subscribe” button. Users will first need the iTunes software, which is a free download.

The podcasts are also available at www.nrccte.org. New podcasts will be published as individual research projects are completed.
