Podcasts for Continuing Education

Podcasts also show up as delivery vehicles for content providing continuing education and skill development to professionals of all sorts. Here are a few of the offerings I found.

The Business English Pod helps business professionals everywhere improve their command of business English. Let’s face it: Even some of us whose first language is English struggle with business English. We can only imagine how people who speak English as a second language must struggle with some of the jargon.

Teachers and educators find learning and skill-related podcasts at various sources, including Fordham University’s Center for Professional Development and The Educational Podcast Network, with its many offerings.

Podcast.net, another huge podcast directory, lists podcasts specific to many other professions–including law and politics, science podcasts representing various disciplines and topics, podcasts for the IT professional, podcasts for visual and performance professionals, and podcasts for professionals in business and finance. Medical professionals will find a directory of medical broadcasts at the Arizona Health Science Library.

Space limits the listings I can describe, but I’m optimistic that almost every professional will find a podcast with career-related information.

Spend a few moments Googling “podcasts for learning,” and soon you will be downloading podcasts to help you learn to speak English, Japanese, Italian and other languages; or podcasts offering instruction on Plato’s philosophy, current scientific issues, environmental concerns, and almost anything else you might want.

 

Listening to podcasts and watching videos and television in English are all useful ways to improve your English by yourself.
