Episode 9 – Podcasting 101 (Part 1)
This episode features audio recorded during a March 2008 Center for Teaching workshop titled “Podcasting: What Is It and Why Would You Want To Do It?” We’re splitting this workshop over two podcast episodes. This first episode features a discussion of the roles podcasting can play in and out of the classroom in the service of student learning. Why might you want to produce a podcast for your course? Why might you want students to produce podcasts as part of their course work? How can you make the most out of either option? These and other teaching-related questions will be explored in this first episode via remarks made by two of the workshop facilitators:
- Michael Risen, Graduate Teaching Fellow, Center for Teaching
- Jeff Johnston, Assistant Director, Center for Teaching, and Lecturer, Earth & Environmental Sciences
