Pedagogical Podcasts for Professors
Students are using their iPods all over campus -- not only for listening to music, but also for reviewing lectures which have been podcast by their professors.
Now, the Center for Learning Technologies (CLT) is providing something for the faculty's iPods, as well: a series of pedagogical podcasts for professors. CLT, which offers a variety of services related to faculty support (including instructional design, course design and development, workshops, demonstrations, and evaluations of tools and technologies) is now offering a series of Teachable Moments, available on iTunesU.
Each week, Loreta Ulmer, Ed.D., instructional designer at CLT, presents a CLT Teachable Moment. These interviews with faculty members describe their success in research (covering the challenges and discoveries of their research) or success in the classroom (spotlighting the strategies that have brought them success in their teaching).
To access the CLT Teachable Moment, visit http://itunes.odu.edu, and click on launch public iTunesU. Please be sure that you have downloaded iTunes to your PC before attempting to access iTunesU. You can do this from your ODU applications launcher.
If you're interested in sharing your success story (either in research or in the classroom) in a CLT Teachable Moment, please e-mail the Center for Learning Technologies at CLT@odu.edu.
