For extensive listening assignments, how do teacher created podcasts compare to other media in terms of student engagement? This presentation will share my experience creating podcasts specifically for students and how students engaged with said podcasts. How often do those choose my podcasts and how often do they choose to listen to other podcasts or videos? I will share my findings of what topics students engage with most and discuss ways to improve that engagement.
