Podcasts as student assignments: experiences and insights
Hoegaerts Josephine; Wuokko Maiju
This article examines the use of podcasts as student assignments in higher education. We present practical experiences from two courses, and reflect upon them from the perspective of critical sound studies. While detailed instructions and careful scaffolding are necessary when setting an audio assignment, it is not the technicalities that require the most attention. Instead, we suggest that both teachers and students can acquire new scholarly skills by approaching podcasts with analytical scrutiny similar to that applied to written texts.
