Research Project Explores Impact of Higher Ed Podcasts

A growing number of higher education faculty and students are actively listening to and learning from podcasts, according to a group of researchers behind the Higher Ed Podcast Project.

The project is openly curating a list of audio and video podcasts, calling on the higher education community to add to their list (in Google Docs). Podcast titles include Higher Ed Live, Society for Research in Higher Education, The College Geek Info Podcast, Teaching in Higher Ed and more.

“The wealth of information shared on a video/audio podcasts allows listeners to learn about resources, ideas and information to enhance the work we do at our institutions,” according to the project page.

The researchers are interested in finding out how podcast consumption has impacted or influenced various aspects of higher ed. According to the project website, research questions include:

  • What video/audio podcasts are higher education professionals (graduate students, faculty, and staff) listening to for learning and development?
  • What podcasts are being produced/created for and in higher education (non-lecture/classroom-based)?
  • How has podcast consumption impacted or influenced the work (teaching, research, or service) you do in higher education?
