MRU Library: Podcasting in the university classroom


Mount Royal University Library faculty member, Sara Sharun, has started to see a growing interest across campus in using podcasting for class assignments. The MRU Library has recently been redesigning its audio rooms to give students and faculty a space to create these podcasts, videos, and other multimedia projects. However, using these spaces can be challenging for students and faculty without the proper guidance or experience.

In this episode, Gabrielle Pyska, the CPI’s associate producer, met up with Sara to discuss what podcasting can look like in an academic setting, as well as how audio assignments can create a way for students to engage with big ideas and mobilize knowledge.
