Transmission Podcasting Course
The aim of this course is to give teachers an understanding of the ways in which podcasting can be utilised in a classroom setting to encourage student engagement, creativity and expression. As well as giving an overview of the history and current popularity of podcasting, the course will cover
Podcast recording, Podcast editing, Audio transcribing, Podcasting Lesson Plans,
Podcasting Classroom Examples, Assessing Podcast Submissions, Suggested Equipment
From a technical and learning point of view, podcasting is the least demanding of all media production skills and this course will simplify it further, making it an accessible medium for all teachers and students, regardless of technical expertise.
As part of their participation, teachers will be asked to submit ideas about areas in their daily teaching where they think podcasting might be utilised (eg project work, presentations, stories etc). These suggestions will be incorporated into the second workshop with bespoke examples delivered to illustrate how podcasting methodology can be seamlessly integrated into curriculum work.
We will be creating a complementary e-learning course which will enable participating teachers to put theory into practise, with guidance from our expert trainers.
This is an introductory course but will be designed to complement a wider rollout of podcasting as a valuable classroom creative, expressive and educational tool.
