New posts in the iTunes “Mentoring U” podcast series

We are thrilled to announce the new Mentoring U audio podcast series. Now you can download episodes and learn about mentoring while you’re driving, cooking, etc.  Produced by award-winning radio host, Micheline Mann, the Chronicle’s podcast series was recently described by one listener as “like NPR for mentoring.” To get started, we have released 10 new podcasts for your enjoyment.  Open iTunes to download and subscribe to the  iTunes Mentoring U collections. In coming weeks, we will be posting podcasts from all of the members of the Chronicle’s editorial board.
