Drawing Across the Disciplines: Podcasts – May 1, 2024

Session Description

May 1 2024 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Centre for Research & Innovation Support (CRIS) presents the next session in our series: Drawing Across the Disciplines: Podcasts. In this session, we explore the full range of podcasting’s potential: from how to be guest on one, to how to conceptualize and host one, to how to sustain a multi-season show. Our expert panelists will discuss how they’ve leveraged podcasts in their scholarly work to share their research findings as well as share concrete tips on starting, hosting, and maintaining a podcast.

As with past Drawing Across the Discipline sessions, this webinar will be followed by a two-part, hands-on workshop. The workshop will cover technical aspects of recording sound and learning how to use the MADlab-CRIS sound booth that is equipped with a USB mic and headphones. In part two, participants will examine principles of good storytelling and will begin using exercises like storyboarding to structure their podcasts while also exploring the research affordances of podcasts. We are no longer accepting applications for the Podcast Workshop. For more information please visit the event page.
