In this second Transformative Learning Hub session for September 2022, Chris McMorran (Assoc. Prof., National University of Singapore) will explore the pedagogical possibilities of podcasting. Chris is a cultural geographer with broad research interests in the geographies of home and the geographies of teaching and learning.

In the first part of the session, Chris discusses podcasting as disruptive pedagogy. In particular, he highlights podcasting’s capacity to transform how knowledge is shared and co-created in the classroom, including through the inclusion of overlooked voices and forms of communication.

In the second half, we’ll have a workshop. Chris will offer practical advice for anyone curious about adding podcasts to their teaching. He shares his experience with incorporating podcasting into a large (100+ students) course, including assignments and rubrics.

Note: In order for the second half of the workshop to be hands-on, Chris asks participants to bring an assignment or syllabus for a course that might be suitable for adding podcasts in some way.

This session is based on Chris’s work at the National University of Singapore, where he co-produces Home on the Dot, a podcast that explores the meaning of home on the little red dot of Singapore through the lives of his students.
