planning our sound

  1. I’m thinking of something conversational and interview-driven. I would like to talk to people around my institute about their teaching and learning challenges and successes. How they think about the big ideas that are currently out there like Indigenization, Equity Diversity, and Inclusion, Open Learning, Universal Design for Learning, etc. How they are bringing those ideas to life in their practices. I want the conversations to be interesting for other educators who are also wondering about their teaching and how to stay current and improve and learn from those who have tried things out.
  2. I like the You Got This! structure. It is clear and follows a helpful pattern. I am thinking of something similar, with an introduction to a subject, some discussion on that with someone, followed by some related diversion, like resource recommendations (books, websites, podcasts, etc.) At the moment, I have tried a couple episodes of my own, but it’s pretty spare stuff. Eventually, I’d like to involve my colleagues and maybe have them add in their own pieces.
  3. For tone, I’d like my podcast to be relaxed, conversational, thoughtful, enjoyable and sometimes Wow!
  4. I tried creating my own theme introduction. As my own personal in-joke, I took the cords from Ozzy Osbourne’s Crazy Train and folked it up to make it sound like some gentle acoustic welcome. Then I put the file through a couple filters, which I don’t really know how to use, to give it more zing. I’m not sure….
  5. I would like to get more adept at integrating different sounds. Not quite there yet, but working on it.

  1. This sounds really fun and I like how much thought you’ve already put into your project — exciting stuff. As a listener to pedagogy podcasts, I like that you’re thinking about sharing connected resources. I am often frustrated by a lack of detailed show notes or any way to connect with the material from the episode! And I am eager to hear this theme song now…
