Whether to highlight expertise, promote research or to summarise a lecture for students to hear on-line, podcasting is a great way to reach your audience. Effective vocal delivery is a vital component of a podcast.
This one-day workshop consists of three sessions. The opening presentation gives a step-by-step demonstration on how to record, edit, host and up-load a podcast using free software called Audacity. The second session focusses on the structure and writing of the podcast as well as how to deliver the spoken word in a natural, conversational manner. The afternoon workshop includes recording and playing back sample podcasts for analysis and critique. The day ends with a round table discussion.
