Audio Podagogy: A Scaffolded Podcast-Based Approach to Teaching Audio Production Fundamentals

Document Thumbnail

This case study looks at the redevelopment of the mandatory first-year introductory audio production course at Ryerson University’s RTA School of Media. With the aim of developing fundamental audio production skills that sustain students in future productions across a range of media disciplines, the instructional design team created a podcast-based pedagogy wherein each student develops a pilot for a podcast series. This project is achieved through a scaffolded process wherein the podcast is broken down into smaller components that realize student competencies in studio and field recording, editorial, mixing, sound design, and live radio production. Beyond these core competencies, students emerge with portfolio-ready material that is a strong indicator of their media production talents.
