Learning from podcasting


Every Monday of term since October 2013, a second year business student and I have been releasing a podcast for business undergraduates in the Hastings campus of University of Brighton.

The idea is partly about students as producers and partners in learning and partly to offer topical news-related talks which link in some way with modules studied on the four business courses in this small campus. Trying to add some tacit component to explicit, formally taught business studies.

To date we have done recordings ourselves, as well as recording other students, academics and support staff from the university on topics ranging from Wikipedia and good writing practice to floods and business continuity.

The technology we use keeps recording quality fairly low but is informal and quite Lquick to use. The informality doesn’t seem to bother listeners, though we haven’t had a deal of feedback yet, just a couple of positive reactions.

The link to the growing podcast series is here.
