This project-based workshop is ideal for self-motivated individuals who want to build on what they have learned in CMST 150. Students may work individually or as a group to produce a single, longer format podcast, and/or plan and convert a previous one into a pilot for a series. Project management is heavily emphasized, from determining the format and style of podcasts to distributing them to a hosting site. Throughout the quarter, students will be presenting their own work to the class as well as providing feedback for their classmates' work. This class may include students from multiple sections.
