In 2008, the presenter examined the use of podcasting to assess short research studies by a group of six undergraduate, pre-service final year science teachers. The podcasts were assessed against existing criteria and potential of podcasts within professional graduate teaching courses was considered. The research found that the target audience met, and in many ways exceeded our expectations. As a result, the approach was developed with a larger group of pre service teachers for further study during session 2008/09. This seminar will explore: how the process of preparing podcasts extends pre-service teachers' professional learning; how pre-service teachers can use podcasts to demonstrate their understanding of principles of learning and teaching; and how podcasts can be peer and self-assessed. The presenter hopes to involve some students in this presentation.
