Top 6 Marketing Podcasts For You and Your Students

Are you a marketing professor looking to switch up your classroom assignments and escalate student participation? Do your students have a hard time staying focused? Do they seem to always have an excuse for not doing their assigned reading?

Have you considered integrating podcasts into your classroom? 

Podcasts encourage new styles of learning and give way to new strategies like guest lectures, interviews, video demonstrations, etc.

They are easily accessible by phone or laptop and FREE; you can listen anytime, anywhere. 

Podcasts can create a new angle for learning in your course.

They’re perfect to assign students as homework or use in class since they don’t require any screen time. Your students can listen at any time — in the car or at the gym.

Podcasts also aid students with disabilities: “Podcasts are equally useful in cases where a visual impairment makes traditional learning methods arduous.”

Assign a particular podcast for students to listen to before class. Students will come prepared for an in-class discussion, and this will save you valuable class time.

It’s easy to stay up to date with current trends and changes in the industry with podcasts. If you subscribe to a podcast, you’ll automatically receive updates when a new one is posted. 

Podcasts aren’t just for students either. Whether you’re an experienced marketing professor or just starting your marketing career — there’s a podcast for you.
