Podcasting for Teacher Librarians
Based on Karen's journey from 2019 as she navigated the sound world and upskilled herself and her students, this workshop will focus on 'the why' of podcasting from a Library perspective, setting up a podcasting space, and will look at examples of student engagement with podcasting. This topic is relevant for primary and secondary Teacher Librarians and Library staff.
About Karen Bale
Karen has been a Library Manager, then a Teacher Librarian across two 7-12 schools in the systemic Catholic sector in Port Macquarie for 33 of the past 34 years. During this time, across 4 consecutive years, she co-directed #Litfest2444: Pen Paper Pixels (a festival of story in different forms and mediums) for students in the mid coast area and beyond. Each year one of the presentations/workshops was a podcasting experience where participants contrived, scripted, created and edited their story in sound and it was from this event that her interest in audio began.
Last year, Karen took a year of leave from her role as T/L, and decided to resign from her position at the end of 2022. She currently job-shares the role of Careers Adviser (her other 'hat') one day per week at her former school, and holds a contract with Charles Sturt University to coordinate the OZTL-Net listserv. In 2022 she edited a series of podcasts being produced for one of the subjects in the Master of Education (Teacher Librarianship) course at Charles Sturt University, and will be continuing with that work later this year.
