Saturday, March 11, 2023

Podcasts have recently become a dominate medium within our culture, and as such, there is a strong case to be made for the inclusion of podcasts into the creative writing classroom. In fact, the number of classrooms including podcasts increases every year. Our panelists will discuss the ins and outs of both teaching podcasts and incorporating podcasts as teaching tools by outlining prompts, demos, and assignments. We will also provide general guidance and address best practices.
