Description: 

In episode 33 of the Lecture Breakers podcast, I share 10 ways (plus 1 bonus strategy!) you can use podcasts in your courses to break up your lecture, increase student engagement, and improve learning. 

Podcasts can work in any course, in any format, and in any discipline. Adding podcast episodes to your lectures can increase student motivation, promote critical thinking, and connect students with "real world" issues within and beyond the classroom. 

In this episode, I share how I used podcasts in one of my online courses. I also discuss different active learning strategies you can easily use with podcasts to increase student engagement. And, I share one bonus strategy you may want to try if you are experienced with podcasts, have a smaller class, and want to take it to the next level!

What you'll learn:

  • The benefits of using podcasts in your course.

  • The different types of podcast formats.

  • Easy ways to integrate podcasts into any lesson or lecture.

  • Active learning strategies to use with podcasts in your course.
