The LD Project Podcast  

The Learning Development Project podcast explores the scholarship of teaching and learning within the field of learning development. The purpose of the LD Project podcast is to foster conversations around what makes LD a unique scholarly field. Learning development has been growing in the past decade with many academics and HE professionals discovering the joys of working in what we called the third space.

The LD Project Podcast has been created to explore key ideas that underpin our practice, to open up new conversations in this exciting field and to foster community and scholarly collaboration. In each episode, we talk to the authors of paper publications that have shaped learning development and that govern our thinking about teaching and learning. We hope that by hearing about the great work that happens in our community, will inspire others to learn from each other, to listen better and to write more.
