South Carolina Public Radio and the College of Charleston are proud to announce a partnership aimed at delivering concise, impactful insights tailored for both students and parents. The one-minute radio segment, Teachable Moments, is designed as a platform to address pressing educational issues dedicated to offering valuable perspectives to listeners beginning April 12, 2024.

From the prevalence of cellphones in classrooms to the intricacies of homework management, mental health awareness and combating childhood obesity, each episode of Teachable Moments shares a concise yet comprehensive exploration of pertinent issues. Listeners can expect an array of discussions, from practical tips for fostering academic success to insights on promoting holistic well-being. Through Teachable Moments, host Rénard Harris aims to bridge the gap between educators, parents and students, fostering a collaborative environment conducive to learning and growth. 

Harris is an associate professor of management in the School of Business at the College of Charleston. He holds an Ed.D. in teacher education. Since his time at the College of Charleston and several years prior, he has explored multicultural education, diversity, equity and inclusion; storytelling; cultural relevance; and leadership. He is often called upon to serve as a keynote speaker, diversity facilitator and consultant for businesses and educational institutions. 

“The College of Charleston is excited to work with SCETV, a fellow state agency that provides a great service to the people of South Carolina,” says College of Charleston President Andrew T. Hsu. “This new partnership provides a wonderful opportunity for our university to share timely and helpful content to SCETV listeners and puts a spotlight on what we as an institution do best: teach.”
