Teaching Online through Podcasting

What is a podcast? In this age of social media, and interactive multi-platform software, the creation and use of podcasts as a teaching modality makes sense. Podcasts are free, international, available on a multitude of platforms, and easy to access. Lecture materials that would traditionally be delivered in a brick and mortar classroom can now be accessed at any time on virtually any device (cellphone, tablet, computer, smart-watch etc.). The presenter of the workshop is a podcaster in higher education with over 1000 weekly listeners. The purpose of this workshop is to highlight the benefits of podcasting in higher education.
