Podagogy® is the method and practice of teaching and learning via podcasts. It combines the word pedagogy (which refers to the art and science of teaching and learning) and the word podcasts (which we’ve all got in our pockets today).
In doing so, it provides a unique and remarkably engaging way of learning – when and where you and your team members need it most.
The Podagogy® Method Series puts Dr. White’s En Factor® Podcast guests at the center of a suite of deeply engaging educational offerings that help corporate innovators, entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders and solopreneurs level up their teams and professional practices.
