Teaching Podcasting

I have been given the awesome privilege of teaching a workshop on podcasting at St. Louis Community College – Meramec.The three-day class, entitle The ABCs of Podcasting, runs August 4–6.

The opportunity arose from my participation on the Advisory Board for Meramec’s Center for Visual Technology (CVT). During several of the most recent meetings, I spoke enthusiastically and often about the power of podcasting. I suggested that the board should create a podcast and use it to build community and influence department and college decision-makers.

Several short weeks after the last meeting, the Board Chairman called to offer me this opportunity. I was glad to accept, and immediately began writing my lesson plan, using a spreadsheet to plot out the three days divided into the hours of the day in 15 minute intervals.

A few days later, the Chairman sent a message requesting that I create a course name, a description and a list of prerequisites. I found this task to be more difficult than the initial planing I had done, mainly because it was due right now, whereas I had four months to write the lesson plan.

This story goes on and on, so I’ll be writing more in this space about it. I also plan to create a podcast on the subject, so please stay tuned.

If you’re interested in registering for this workshop, call the Center for Visual Technology at SLCC – Meramec at 314-984-7777.

    Romondo, I was so nice to meet you the other day at the board meeting. I enjoyed reading this blog posting and I am so happy you agreed to teach this important class for the Center for Visual Technology @ The Digtial Arts and Technology Alliance. I know I will greatly appreciate your guideance and support as we continue to move the college forward.
    Thank you for comment on my blog about faith. I’ve told both Campus President Pai and Dean Yvonne Johnson that all my past experience has been preparing me for this position. I feel I am in the right place at the right time. I feel you are on the board for that same reason so you can take the alliance into the future, make a diiference for our students and our community. – Thank you for your service, Randy
