Podcast Network

So much of CELT's work—and the work of teaching and learning in general—happens through sustained discussion and reflection. The CELT Podcast Network was imagined as a way to have these conversations in a public forum, as a way of showcasing the incredible work of our scholar-educators and the UK teaching community at large. Podcasts here engage with faculty, staff, and students on a range of critical issues related to teaching and learning, from specific classroom practices to larger perspectives on higher education. We invite you to listen in to our shows below, and reach out to us if there's something you'd like to explore further! We always like to keep the conversation going.


Extended Office Hours with Dr. Regina Hamilton

Hosted by Dr. Regina Hamilton of UK's Department of English and African American and Africana Studies program, Extended Office Hours invites faculty into the studio to discuss their paths to teaching. Sometimes the stories are personal, sometimes they're critical, but they're always important. In this first season of the show, episodes focus on what drew each faculty member to where they are today.

This is the five-episode first season of Extended Office Hours, a podcast in the CELT Podcast Network. Dr. Regina Hamilton hosts. David Cole produces.
