Adults’ Super Basic Podcasting Workshop

  • A practical extension of the Super Basics Podcasting Online Course
  • Access to the Super Basic Podcasting Online Course is included in the price and students are required to complete this course prior to the workshop so that students can get the most out of learning how to practically make a podcast.
  • The aim is for each student to end the workshop with a “podcast in production” and the knowledge and confidence to finish it.
  • Editing basics using Audacity, Garage Band or Hindenburg can be included as part of an extended workshop.

“Kel came and taught a podcasting workshop for my undergraduate Communications students. She covered everything from pre-production, planning and writing, all the way through to using equipment and editing a final product. Not only did the students really respond to her enthusiastic approach, but they also soaked up the information, producing some of the best podcasts I’ve seen from beginner podcasters. Several of them have been inspired to continue podcasting because Kel made everything seem simple and achievable. I will definitely be running the workshop again each year for my class.”
