The Independent Curriculum Group podcasts, available on PodOmatic and iTunes, showcase how members of the ICG’s Partner School community and other thought leaders and educators are responding to today’s educational challenges and opportunities.

Our podcasts comprise two related series, Independent Curriculum: The Podcast and The Independent Curriculum Group PARTNER PODCAST. ICG executive director Peter Gow hosts each series.

Independent Curriculum: The Podcast highlights ideas, organizations, schools, challenges, and individuals playing significant roles in the development of  contemporary education and empowering schools and educators to choose their own best ways to teach and learn.

The Independent Curriculum Group PARTNER PODCAST: Independent Curriculum in Practice provides a showcase for the ICG’s Partner Schools to talk about how they are embracing and enacting the ICG’s Principles of Independent Curriculum in their strategic and tactical efforts to evolve. Each episode is accompanied by a written summary that includes links to specific resources referenced by the guest and host.
