Podcasting for learning in universities

Salmon, Gilly and Edirisingha, Palitha, eds. (2008) Podcasting for learning in universities. Open University Press, Maidenhead, England. ISBN 9780335234288

Abstract

The book is an introduction, a guide and a key resource that will help you to explore podcasting as an exciting area of pedagogical development. The book describes research-based podcast applications for learning in universities in the UK, Australia and South Africa. Most of the work of developing and evaluating the use of podcasts was carried out under a research-into-practice project IMPALA funded by the UK Higher Education Academy. Other work was chosen because of the soundness of the authors' rationales for developing podcasts and the rigorous methods they used to evaluate students' learning through podcasts. We also offer a model and lots of guidance. We believe that it will interest you if you are a:
- lecturer, tutor, university teacher or instructor from any level, subject discipline and country context, starting out or experienced
- member of staff of a professional development unit
- learning technologist
- manager
- researcher investigating emerging technologies for teaching and learning
- corporate trainer
This is not a book about the technology of podcasting as such. If you are of a technical inclination, the book will interest you more from the perspective of podcasting's use and application by university teachers than the latest technology. There’s a basic explanation of the technology for non-technical readers in Chapter 3 and 'How to do' in the appendix.
