This session will highlight the process and challenges of implementing a podcasting initiative. The presenters will share their first-hand experience with producing podcasts in their courses. Additionally, the educators will make resources available like classroom assignments including rubrics, suggestions for audio equipment, recommendations for digitally archiving audio content and more.
The Podcasting: AUC Life 101 is an AMICAL Small Grant funded project and an AUC campus-wide initiative with two goals: to document the life of students, faculty and staff, both on and off campus in preparation for the university’s centennial celebration in 2019 and to duplicate the project across global campuses as a collaborative approach to documenting and archiving the campus community.
By creating audio diaries, participants document their life via audio and produce a short podcast. Those podcasts are then donated to the university’s digital archives.
