Chef Educator

The Chef Educator podcast was created to be a comprehensive resource for new and "seasoned" culinary, baking & pastry, and hospitality teachers, instructors and faculty at both secondary and post-secondary educational institutions.

The show addresses the many issues related to student learning and instructor effectiveness and our hope is to offer a collection of practical and effective teaching tools, tips and techniques that we can all use in our classroom and/or labs. And if this is of interest, please be sure to subscribe to this podcast!
