How (and Why) to Create Your Own OER Podcast
Welcome! This will be a pre-recorded presentation but will be "screened" live in Zoom. We'll be available for discussion in Zoom starting at 10:40AM EST! See you soon!

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

Open Art Histories: Reimagining How We Teach Visual and Material Cultures
Open Art Histories (OAH) is a platform for art, art history, visual art, architecture, communication, and museum studies teachers and instructors in Canada. Our goal is to build a generative and supportive network for addressing the pressing pedagogical challenges confronting these fields, including globalizing art history, teaching English-as-an-additional-language students, decolonizing the discipline and classroom, and advancing accessibility and inclusion. This collaborative workshop explores how we might adapt our pedagogical practices to best represent a field in flux, one that is no longer bound by a single historical narrative or set of objects? What approaches or tools might we develop or adopt to make our increasingly dynamic field accessible to the increasingly diverse students in our classrooms? How can open access, online resources, and new technologies, which have dramatically transformed the way both text and object are encountered, shape course content and delivery, while providing dynamic, tangible, and sustainable outcomes for students? Participants will consider the challenges in teaching visual and material culture both within the discipline of art history and beyond as a way to order and reimagine, reinvigorate, reinvent, and reshape the teaching of the discipline for our times.

Learning Outcomes:
At the end of this session, participants will be able to: identify the challenges in teaching visual and material cultures in the 21st century; make connections between the challenges and pedagogical tools (resources, programs, apps) currently available;
and, envision ethical and sustainable open educational practices in their own teaching and curriculum.
