Podcasting is a tool for continuing professional development in the ELT community, with participation seen as a sustainable “teacher network” option. Drawing upon the presenters’ experiences of podcast production, as well as surveying other projects in the field, this practical session will introduce attendees to ways of engaging in podcasts for professional development purposes. The audience will have the chance to reflect on a variety of formats and discuss wider applications for podcasting in ELT.
