Additional Course Details: 

Course Title: Podcasting -  Podcasting has exploded in popularity over the past few years. As a means of self-expression, sharing information, instruction, marketing, or expressing opinions, podcasting at its best and most effective is not just a casually produced audio report on an issue or high points from an interview. Creating an engaging, substantive podcast provides and
opportunity to inform and express on a high level, and deliver a finished product in a relatively short period of time.

We will listen to the work of many of the top podcasters, who spend hours carefully constructing their episodes. We will learn and use many of the same methods of writing, storytelling, speaking, audio production, and post-production traditionally used in podcasts today. Each student will choose from myriad topics and develop a series on a chosen topic. There will be a requirement of a minimum of one podcast episode every other week. Over the course of the semester, students will work at developing and enhancing their ability to produce
sophisticated content which includes strong narrative communication.
