CEWT Talk - Season 2 Highlights

Sammy Rich on Dec 14, 2020 9:30:00 AM


If you didn’t already know, Continuing Education and Workforce Training (CEWT) has just wrapped up season two of its podcast, CEWT Talk-- and what a season it has been! Be sure to check out our season finale, where Scott Rasmussen, dean of the College of Technology, reflects on his career.

This season brought unexpected challenges and opportunities for growth. One of the biggest changes from last season has been changing how we record our episodes, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. During season one-- and the very beginning of season two-- podcasts were recorded in-person in a professional studio. Now, the regular faces of CEWT Talk meet over Zoom from their home offices.

While we have had to make some adjustments to our recording process, we have not made any changes to the amazing, insightful people that have been featured on CEWT Talk.

Here are ten of our favorite episodes from Season 2:
