22-4232-AUT-Podcasting for Teaching - 3 Week Course

Podcasting for Teaching 

For Primary and Post Primary Teachers 

Explore how podcasts can be introduced to the classroom whether you the teacher would like to be the host or maybe the pupils will take the reigns.  Either way, podcasts and audio can be a very creative and educational alternative in the classroom and this workshop explains how you & your pupils can learn how to produce, record & publish podcasts. Remote teaching and online platforms have become the new classroom. If podcasts may not be exactly what you are looking for - this workshop will show you alternative ways in how you can create teaching content and use audio as a medium to teach and for pupils to participate in return.

Class 1:

Produce - Understanding the blueprints of producing. We'll look at what things you need to take into account to first create your show & produce content for your show. 

Class 2: 

Recording -  So you have your show, now you need to figure out how to record & what you need to do so! We'll look at the tips and tricks of how to record good quality audio whether it's using equipment or even your phone. Remember bad audio is a reason for someone to turn off immediately - lets avoid that! We'll also look quickly at presenting skills how to deliver your recording well.

Class 3:

Publish - Before your podcast is ready to upload, you'll need music to go with it & need some minor editing. We'll look at easy steps to achieve this before you publish it online. There are many ways to get it online, but we'll make it as simple as possible.
