Trent instructor reflects on intersection of podcasts, pedagogy: Editorial

News Opinion

Trent University Senior eLearning Designer Terry Greene has penned a reflection on his experiences integrating podcasts into his pedagogy. Greene worked with Trent Assistant Professor Dr Erick Laming to design a criminology course that replaced pre-recorded lectures with podcasts and provided students with separate audio files, complementary slides, and transcripts. Greene writes that this format boosted the accessibility of the course, allowing students to absorb information in the best way for them and search for key terms throughout the content. “It’s not just about professors imparting knowledge to students,” said Greene. “Education should foster a multidirectional flow of ideas, experiences, and insights.”
