Podcasts in the Classroom

Season 2 | Episode 21
30m | Oct 12, 2021

Podcasting has been around for many years but has recently gained new interest and popularity due to new topics and celebrity hosts, as well as easier access to mobile technology apps that let you easily download and listen to podcasts “on the go”.

Podcasts are a versatile medium which have also become more and more a part of education. Today students may encounter podcasts alongside other materials in their reading and listening assignments and teachers are starting to use podcasts in place of lecture videos, with some faculty even asking students to create their own podcast episodes to demonstrate their learning. In this episode, Dr. Colin Roche shares how you can use podcasts in your classrooms and provides you with some tips and resources to help you get started. 

ABOUT THE SHOW: The Chef Educator podcast was created to be a comprehensive resource for new and "seasoned" culinary, baking & pastry, and hospitality teachers, instructors, and faculty at both secondary and post-secondary educational institutions.

The show addresses the many issues related to student learning and instructor effectiveness and our hope is to offer a collection of practical and effective teaching tools, tips, and techniques that you can use in your classroom and/or labs.
