Summary:

Listen to the new episode of the Futures in Digital Learning podcast as we explore how UA Instructors are using podcasts to create engaging storytelling for their students.

Podcasting has become an increasingly popular media content development for online courses. In part, this is because listeners are not tied to their computers when listening, and can tune in when at home, at work, driving, or working out. This month, on Futures of Digital Learning, our podcast about ed-tech, media production, and all things related to online learning, we explore how UA Instructors are using podcasts to create engaging storytelling for their students.

As we begin to transition to the fall semester, students and faculty continue to adapt to the new reality under COVID. One major adaptation is the transition to remote learning. Although many of us are familiar with learning and teaching in the online environment, it’s somewhat of a new experience for others. Tyina Steptoe, associate professor in the History department, and Jess Kapp, associate professor of practice in Geosciences, share their experiences leveraging storytelling and podcasts in the remote learning environment.
