Workshop Presentation Podcasting

Intended Audience:

This workshop is extremely interactive and will cater to all participants interested in workplace teaching and learning in Vocational Training and Education (VTE). Attendees will learn about and discuss innovative ways of applying the workshop’s concepts to their specialized field of practice.

The participants will work in groups to produce a mini ilecture. A narrow slice of in depth knowledge with instructions to a specific workplace problem based issue will be provided. This mini ilecture will demonstrate how expertise knowledge can be collaboratively shared using no headsets and only one ipod to as many listeners in the workplace as possible. Learn how itrips and radio transmitters can broadcast podcasts to the workplace. The idea of this workshop is to illustrate how trainees can use ipods and itrips as knowledge-acquisition tools to tap into expert instructional advice for in situ problem-based leaning.
