Okayama JALT:

Thinking Podcasting? Think Again.

Date: Saturday, May 17th, 2008 Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Alex McAulay, Yokohama University

The hype in CALL is currently settled on podcasting. However, teachers thinking of producing their own podcasts need to begin by addressing two issues: (a) the complexity involved in the undertaking, and (b) how to integrate a podcast into the syllabus. Adapting the guidelines by Harmer (2003), and Warschauer & Whittaker (2002), this presentation will outline ten principles guiding the process of creating the video podcast ynu5photos. The podcast is available at www.ynu5photos.blogspot.com.
