Academics, colleagues and friends Sebastian Kaempf and Alastair Stark from the University of Queensland share the evolution of their podcast, Higher Ed Heroes, which they created in 2020 to mimic the incidental corridor conversations that have been missing during the pandemic. In this episode, they explain how the podcast replicates peer-to-peer sharing of best teaching practice. Their down-to-earth, buzzword-free approach has seen their audience grow from just UQ colleagues to listeners in 70 countries.
