N the Stacks - Episode 2 : Interview with Deni

Hi everyone, This next podcast is an example of how interviews can make the podcast interesting and relevant. The interview format creates dialog between people on or about a subject. By using this format, the librarian can address the topics related to information literacy while creating a dynamic conversation with another expert or informant. My vision of the use of this format is that students can be required or encouraged to listen to these interview podcasts and then be asked to be prepared to discuss the concepts later on, in class. This format utilizes the asynchronous lesson that will be incorporated later in a face to face, or synchronous, session.

The other way that I see this format as being useful, is as a dialog between two people. Dialog is unpredictable and therefore retains the listeners' interest and if it created by two librarians, for example, it could be a conversation on information literacy topics. The podcast could be a conversation about skills and techniques that learners could tap into on an as needed basis.

Hopefully, "Episode 2: Interview with Deni" has captured the essence of teaching with interviews and dialogs. Click here for the mp3 file of "Episode 2: Interview with Deni" Recorded March 31, 2006.
