A study of the impact of podcasting technology in the teaching of foreign language courses.

The goal of this project is to build upon previous work by the principal investigator to determine if the use of podcasting technology in foreign language courses results in increased pedagogical effectiveness and greater student learning outcomes. The proposed study will examine the academic use of podcasting in beginning to advanced language, literature, and culture courses for the 2007-2008 academic year, including Arabic, German, Italian, Spanish, and Foreign Literatures in English Translation. The evaluation will provide evidence of the benefits of podcasting for foreign language instruction for publication in professional journals to promote the widespread adoption of strategies and materials developed by the project. It will provide evidence that podcasting has measurable instructional benefits. This will be used in subsequent studies that will scale up the use of new instructional practices to other courses that proved to be most successful for academic podcasting.
