The fine folks at Thompson Rivers University have done it again. This time they are making themselves heard, or not surprisingly, helping their faculty be heard through podcasts and other formats for audio presentation.
This site… is an open educational resource designed for faculty to get online with their scholarly audio recordings.
Podcasts make great collaborative and capstone projects for students. Some great examples:
Using podcasting to teach audience and research skills in composition class (including a compilation of the students’ favourite resources).
Educause has collected some great podcast stories, including students using podcasting to report on study abroad experiences, connect as peer mentors, and as study tools for language learners.
It walks you through all the steps needed to produce and distribute your audio. While these things are often institution specific, we are developing our own workflow and resources for the Simon Fraser instructional community.
Our rough draft is included here
We also are running a Pro Soundcloud account which we would be able to utilize for a variety of SFU projects, should it be helpful.
