Call for Participation in the AudioFiles Podcasting Workshop

September 21, 2016

The Center for Media, Data and Society (CMDS) in cooperation with the Mirabaud Media Lab at CEU is organizing a five session workshop on podcasting for the CEU community. The aim of the workshop is to introduce participants to the basics of podcasting: how to create and produce audio content that will help promote their work and open new paths to cooperation with their peers. Students, faculty and staff are welcome to apply.

Workshop Description:
Academic podcasting is a new form of content creation, a medium for content dispersion and part of a movement that seeks to expand intellectual engagement. Moreover, podcasting in academia has the potential to foster new communities of practice, to open academic knowledge and change the way research is imagined.

You will learn how to:
- use recording equipment and software for audio production
- write scripts, edit and manage audio content

- No previous podcasting experience is required but basic computer literacy skills are (please note that we will work with Apple Macs in the sessions)
- Be a member of CEU, either as a student, faculty or staff. Visiting scholars and students are welcome
