Presenters

Jason Donner has 20+ years of experience as a professor of communication. An Illinois native, Donner earned his BA and MA in Broadcasting and Communication from Murray State University as a first-generation student. After work in print media and television production, he joined the faculty at WKCTC, teaching undergraduate courses in public speaking and mass media. Today, Donner is an active leader, chairing campus-wide initiatives and coordinating three departments. After two years of producing and hosting an educational history podcast for a regional NPR station, he brought that idea to the classroom and now introduces students to the collaborative and immediate nature of podcasting.

Extended Abstract

Educators look to engage students in unique and mobile ways. This session shows how to design and produce an education based podcast as a class project for online students or in a classroom.  Podcasting with your students will create immediate collaborative learning based on students actively cooperating.  Attendees will see how to set-up simple recording tools, lead students in planning their podcast’s purpose and hear what must happen in a compelling podcast.  You will walk away with some very quick editing resources, audio clips from great example podcasts by students and a start-up guide for uploading your podcasts online or in your LMS.  And you may be asked to record a comment or two with the presenter; no professional experience (or equipment) required!
