Breaking Silos Podcast

Welcome to the Breaking Silos podcast page! You can also view our Soundcloud page or Apple podcast page or our Spotify page. 

Breaking Silos is a podcast that engages in deep discussions about guests’ scholarship and the ways that scholarship may help teach or assess language and communication in college classrooms. Our guests come from a wide range of disciplines and research areas, many not directly about the teaching of writing. The hope is to engage in conversations that break the academic and teaching silos we often work in in the academy. And in the process, we hope that writing teachers and other listeners will find our conversations fun, engaging, and meaningful to their classrooms and students.
