Join us for a lunch and learn on –
“Using Podcasts for Teaching and Learning: Lessons from the past and a look toward the future.”
We will have a guest speaker, Prof. Rhoda Weiss-Lambrou from University of Montreal, who launched and has done research on podcasting pedagogy. We are hoping to generate a lively discussion around this topic.

A light lunch will be provided.
If you are interested in Podcasting, come to Podcamp! It’s free, and bound to be full of great new ideas. While not focused on the use of podcasting in education, I’m sure there will be something for everyone.
DMP & Podcasting @ the Ryerson 2007 Faculty Conference
This coming Monday, May 14th, podcasting will be one of the featured stations in the DMP Tech Playroom at the Ryerson Faculty Conference. The "playroom" will feature a number of stations where DMP staff will demonstrate some of the technologies they support, including: Webcasting, Web-conferencing using Breeze, Blogging & Podcasting, Blackboard & Turnitin, and Inking.
- Session 1: 10:15am – 11:45am, Atrium – Engineering Building
- Session 2: 1:45pm – 3:15pm, Atrium – Engineering Building
See you on Monday!
In preparation for my session on Blogging & Podcasting, I started a quick little podcast where I will be posting wee videos from the conference. These will likely have no content value, but will be used to demonstrate how easy the technology can be*.
* This is, of course, assuming that you’re making the most basic podcast and want no special features. Making a good podcast, of course, takes much time and effort. The purpose here is to demystify some of the technology and show that it is usable, and can even be fun!
Podcasting about Rolling, and also Podcasting
Another blog/podcast has been rolled out recently – this time, one with some content! The How to Use Roller blog has been revamped, retooled and best of all – repodded. OK, so I made up that last word. This new blog features tutorials on how to use Ryerson’s Roller blog system – including how to use it for podcasting!
There are currently three starter tutorials up there right now, with more in the works.
