How to Create an Effective Podcast

March 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

This course will help you to pitch your podcast correctly to the target audience, to organise your thoughts and consider the best ways to present them. It will give you the skills to present the podcast in a talk format, and the interviewing skills to make an interview/conversation style podcast. All participants will have the opportunity to practise both formats, an audio/video straight talk and an on-camera interview.

The workshop does not offer training in technical skills (recording and editing a podcast) because facilities differ from university to university, but the trainers supply the participants with a list of useful ‘how to’ links. The course enables participants:

  • to communicate effectively in their podcasts
  • to pitch their podcasts correctly to the intended audience
  • to choose the best format for their podcast
  • to understand the challenges of attracting online audiences
  • to be able to pitch a podcast correctly to the intended audience, including non-specialist ones
  • to know how to tell a good story in a podcast
  • to know how to plan, structure and present a podcast
  • to know how to interview colleagues for a podcast
  • to be able to record a podcast in both straight talk and interview formats
