Abstract

Halting face-to-face instruction in spring 2020 resulted in reimagining teaching and learning for a digital frontier. As teacher educators, we brought conversations about remote teaching and learning to the forefront with our pre-service teacher candidates. Taking these conversations into an online environment by producing an education podcast with guests from the field became a forum for strategically and holistically distributing content. In the spirit of critical pedagogy, podcasting became a megaphone for more effectively engaging in and utilizing individuals’ educational research and narratives that addressed current issues. By using the Map of Meaningful Work as a methodology for identifying worth in podcasting, we could see the value in our contributions as a means of nourishing our minds and facilitating our own learning as well as that of our colleagues and partners. Podcasting moves beyond the classroom walls, the meeting rooms, and the time/space limits to reach people who need to hear what education professionals have to say at the right time and the right place. Our guests and listeners who have found value in our messages motivate me to cast aside self-doubt in order to have more faith in the process and embrace opportunities to cultivate meaningful work.

Podcast Production as Meaningful Work

Halting face-to-face instruction in spring 2020 resulted in reimagining teaching and learning for a digital frontier.
