4 optional practically focused Parallel Sessions:

Making a Podcast (led by Alan Carr)


This Practical Challenge will involve both experienced and beginners working together in small groups, each creating a podcast from a given scenario. The aim is to show how easily and quickly a podcast can be planned and recorded using a hand held digital recorder or a PC. Which is the easiest? Which is the most effective? Who will make the best podcast in the allotted time? Are you ready for the Great Podcast Challenge?


Open Floor Thunderstorm (led by Andy Ramsden)


An Open Floor session: an opportunity for participants to present on the topic of podcasting in education (curriculum, research, assessment etc). Each presenter is allowed a maximum of 10 slides and 10 minutes. After that, Andy will turn off the computer. Presentations welcome on any aspect of the theme. Simply bring your USB stick. The computer will have internet access and speakers. If you’d like to present please contact Carol Comer – c.comer@chester.ac.uk ).


Audio Transformation - audio voices as catalysts in a refreshed learner-centred curriculum (led by Andrew Middleton)

Podcasting would appear to provide an ideal tool for knowledge transmission. However, it will be argued that the greater opportunity for education is its use as an engaging and formative device for developing learner articulation and self-efficacy and as a tool for connecting the learner to the authentic digital voices beyond the classroom. This active session will draw out good pedagogic examples from all of those present, building upon some principles that will be used to seed the session. .
