Highlights from BYU's Seek Learning Podcast

One of the hidden gems in the McKay School of Education is the Seek Learning podcast!

Each episode features an interview with a different BYU scholar who shares their perspective on education and how it can help latter-day saints in their professions, homes, and gospel living.

Let's spotlight a few of the latest episodes.

"Understanding Aphasia: Bridging the Communication Gap" with Tyson Harmon

Episode 37- October 2023

Tyson G. Harmon is an Assistant Professor in the department of communications disorders. In this podcast he explains what aphasia is how to help love ones with this disability. Concerning his podcast he said, "If there's a listener who has a loved one with aphasia, who's really struggling to know how to support them, that's okay. And that's normal for this to be hard."

"Advocacy for Physical Education" with Todd R. Pennington

Episode 38- February 2024

Todd R. Pennington is an Associate Professor in Teacher Education in the McKay School. In this podcast he states, "Physical education teachers tend to be isolated because they work down in the gym. And a lot of times some have a planning period, some may not. And so other than faculty meeting they may not, based on proximity, have a lot of interaction. So I tell them, that you've got to be proactive, you've got to make extra efforts to interact with colleagues across content and across the school." 

There are so many more great educators to learn from on the Seek Learning podcast. New episodes are out every month and are worth the listen! It is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other platforms.
