The interest in podcasting in education is on the rise with both students and teaching staff recognising the value and impact that a well-crafted podcast can deliver. But how do universities and/or centres for teaching and learning support the production of educational podcasts? What equipment, training and structures are put in place in different institutions to make podcasting more accessible? During this online workshop, we heard from different institutions about how they support the production of educational podcasts, explored different formats, and shared tips.
