Listen Up: Podcasts as the new “Textbook”

February 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

The workshop will explore how I shared my love of podcasts with my students and what I learned from doing so. Two years ago I was assigned a course with an expensive, out-of-date textbook. I had a couple of weeks to prepare the syllabus and create an overall story for the course. The course itself required current thinking, explored controversies and ways of storytelling. As a regular podcast listener, I decided to integrate podcasts into the course as weekly “readings.” These eliminated the costly textbook and brought a new, current thinking to my course. My session will explore what I as an educator learned from the experiment as well as student feedback. I will share some best practices for selecting podcasts as readings.

Workshop Learning Outcomes

  • Use podcasts as a tool for student engagement
  • Select podcasts that are high quality, accessible and engaging
  • Evaluate podcasts as “texts” in the classroom
