Open Session for 50 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

In this hands on experiential session, participants will be guided by eg. and activities through the basics of setting up a podcast project for educational purposes. There are both technical and pedagogical considerations to take into account which will be covered along with some case studies of faculty who have undertaken this effort.

We will organize the session into 3 parts:  Planning, Production (Recording & Editing) and Publishing.  The presenters will guide participants through these stages as individuals or small teams as necessary.
  1. Planning - what are your inspirations? What is your course content? How do these things come together to form a  show your students will want to listen to?
  2. Production - Recording and editing can be done in 100 different ways. Which will work best for your project?
  3. Publishing - The technical constraints of an institution will have a huge effect on how you can get your podcast into your students earbuds.
The goal is to have a recorded edited piece of educational audio from each group uploaded and ready to share!
