E4E Podcast

Image Picker for Section 0

The E4E Podcast is hosted by UD's Partnership for Public Education (PPE), a university-wide initiative supported by UD's Community Engagement Initiative, the College of Education and Human Development, and the College of Arts and Sciences to develop and foster collaborative education-based partnerships and improve public education in Delaware. 

The podcast's goal is to increase the availability and accessibility of UD expertise to educators, leaders, and decision-makers in the public education system in an easily accessible and digestible format. This podcast will support efforts to connect UD and the education community, increase engagement, and promote mutually beneficial projects, with the ultimate aim of promoting changes in policy and practice that are evidence-based. Faculty members from the University of Delaware's nine colleges and P-12 public education partners share their current research and evidence-based work in education policy and practice and provide implications for Delaware's P-12 education stakeholders.
