Books and Articles


We’ve published a book with The Round! The book is available from The Round’s website, as well as Amazon.

All money from the book will go directly back into the production of the podcast.


Here are some details about the book:

Podcasting and Professional Development: A Guide for English Language Teachers, written by the producers of The TEFLology Podcast Robert J. Lowe, Matthew Y. Schaefer, and Matthew W. Turner, concisely details the emergence of the podcast as a tool for professional development, engagement, and personal investment, as well as providing a guide and rationale for setting up one’s own podcast. Written by podcasters in the field, this book illustrates the positive and transformative nature that such an undertaking can have on one’s teaching life. This is the first book written for language teachers hoping to make connections between the podcast broadcasting medium and their own professional development, and for those wishing to take their own steps onto the digital airwaves.

This book contains: 

•An overview of professional development for English language teachers
•Podcasting ideas for professional development
•Information on setting up a podcast 
•Stories from podcasters and other figures engaged in professional development
•A concise list of podcasts related to English language teaching
