Session Description

At MIT OpenCourseWare, we’re passionate about sharing OER with a global audience. Our newest initiative, the Chalk Radio Podcast, is our latest creative effort to promote awareness of OER at scale and to amplify diverse experiences of creating and sharing OER. We completed our first season with 100K+ downloads on podcast platforms and 110K+ listens on YouTube, so we strongly believe podcasting can be a powerful tool for sharing OER more broadly.

In this session, facilitated by the host of Chalk Radio and MIT OpenCourseWare’s Media Production lead, we share what we’ve learned as newcomers to the podcasting space, provide guidance to other educators initiating or currently working on their own OER-focused podcasts, and get feedback and tips from more experienced participants.

Our session hones in on the five stages of getting a podcast off the ground: 1) defining your focus and audience; 2) making technical decisions about how to record (and how to reimagine these possibilities when recording remotely during Covid-19); 3) preparing interview protocols; 4) post-production editing and accessibility considerations; and 5) outreach and promotion. Through an asynchronous special epsiode of Chalk Radio made especially for our session attendees, we’ll briefly share practical tips in each of these areas and then make ourselves available via zoom to work with participants to apply the suggestions to their own projects. We will use participants’ ideas and experiences to enhance the production and promotion of Chalk Radio, and invite participants to share their own stories of making, using, and sharing OER on our podcast.

Learning Outcomes:
1) Define your OER podcast audience and focus; 2) Get recommendations for recording remotely during Covid-19; 3) Discuss how to develop effective interview protocols; 4) Learn about post-production storytelling strategies; 5) Discuss how to make your podcast more accessible to a diverse audience; 6) Get feedback on outreach strategies and gain access to promotional email templates; 7) Amplify your OER story on Chalk Radio, the MIT OpenCourseWare podcast
