Support TER Podcast on Patreon!

The TER Podcast needs your support!

After nearly 9 years of the TER Podcast, I have finally opened a Patreon account, giving you the opportunity to support the ongoing work of the podcast and join in on the conversation with researchers, leaders and experts in education.

The TER podcast has and will always be free to listeners. The purpose of opening to listener contributions is to help meet the rising cost of production and hosting, as well as providing honouraria for regular contributors, and then pursuing opportunitites for growth.

There are 4 levels of support, starting with the ‘Early-Career Patron’ at $3 a month. If you join as an Accredited Patron or higher, you will get the opportunity to suggest questions for upcomming interviews (where time permits). If you join as a Highly Accomplished Patron level you will also get a shout out in the second episode of every month, and Lead Patrons get acknowledged at the beginning of every regular episode.

In these COVID times its not really wise to share an apple with a teacher, but for the cost of a few apples a month, you can help keep the TER Podcast delivering free professional learning resources for Australian teachers.
