In this workshop, we will discuss the podcast infrastructure at Moraine Valley Community College including conceptual approaches, hardware, software, and staff training. We will discuss the practical challenges of working with students and faculty in creating podcasts while also incorporating this into an information literacy program. Participants will emerge from this workshop a basic understanding of podcasting, potential applications to the college classroom, and the role of libraries in facilitating this content creation. Participants in Part Two of the workshop will record and publish a podcast about information literacy.
