Like blogging, tweeting, and participating in webinars, podcasting is steadily emerging as a new form of online professional development for those involved in language teaching. Although there have long been numerous podcasts for language learners, there is now a small, but growing number of podcasts being produced by language teachers for likeminded fellow professionals. Podcasts provide not only a new platform for engagement with the profession, but also a way for practitioners to reflect on their own teaching and development.
Podcasting and Professional Development: A Guide for English Language Teachers concisely details the emergence of the podcast as a tool for professional development, engagement, and personal investment for language teachers, as well as providing a guide and rationale for setting up one’s own podcast. This book provides stories from podcasters in the field to illustrate the positive and transformative nature that such an undertaking can have on one’s own teaching life. This is the first book written for language teachers hoping to make connections between the podcast broadcasting medium and their own professional development, and for those wishing to take their own steps onto the digital airwaves.
