My colleague Rachel Borchardt and I are giving a session at the GOLD/GALILEO Users Group Conference on August 1st in Athens, GA. Our presentation is:
"Let Your Audience Hear You: Creating an Instructional Podcast"
Interested in publishing an instructional podcast at your library? Learn the steps to design, plan and produce a podcast for your students using inexpensive hardware and mostly free software. We will discuss both instructional design and technological how-to, drawing on our experiences producing Woodruff Library’s Survival Guide podcast for undergraduates. We will include topics such as technology tools, publicity, “iTunes U”, and involving tech-shy colleagues.
I attended this conference last year and it really rocked -- I came away with more ideas and contacts than I usually do from a day at ALA. I'm particularly excited to be co-presenting with Rachel, since she and I have been working on this together for quite a while and it'll be great to share some of what we've learned doing it.
Since this takes place about a week before I finish my MLIS degree, the timing seems particularly auspicious.
