What is a podcast? A podcast is an audio file, often made available on the Internet or for download on mobile devices. Podcasts may be stand-alone or may be part of a series.
Why a podcast? Podcasts provide a way to present a new medium into the learning process in a different format – auditory. Podcasts provide unique and educational content to students with voices other than the professor’s voice (get enough of that in lectures, huh?).
What is a reflection? A reflection paper is not meant to be a time for students to vent, complain, or simply detail what they heard in the podcast or what they read. A reflection should be about sharing your experience in listening to and reading the story(ies), and about sharing any discoveries. A reflection should help the student apply concepts learned in the course and show what students are learning. A reflection is not merely a summary of what you hear and/or read, but rather a piece of critical writing to present your own thoughts and ideas that can include explanations or suggestions.
Students will complete a critical reflection on the podcasts and additional readings assigned. Each reflection is worth 10 points. Students must prepare the reflection with quality writing; content should flow and be appropriate for the assignment. You are allowed to cite other published sources as a way of supporting the thesis of your critical reflection.
For this assignment you will write ONE reflection for all the content you need to review (podcast and reading).
