This week marks the launch of a new science education podcast called, Science Modeling Talks. The podcast is hosted by Mark Royce and features informal conversations with some of the nation's leading experts in Modeling InstructionTM. The first four episodes drop this week and include the founder of MI, David Hestenes, along with Larry Dukerich, Colleen Megowan, and Brenda Royce.

Thanks for the heads up!
Thanks for the blog post Erica. Podcasts are great to use to learn something during a long commute. I downloaded the first two episodes today and plan on listening on the way home from school.
