Organizer, Dr. Kera Lovell

University of Utah Asia Campus (Korea)

This website is a work-in-progress database was created by Dr. Kera Lovell. She is a professor of history at the University of Utah Asia Campus in Korea and has been assigning podcasts as homework assignments in her classes for years. She writes:

“Years ago, it felt rare that I could assign a podcast. Now I can’t keep track of every new relevant show and episode that is released every day. Listening to shows sparked discussion questions, project ideas, and opportunities for connecting with major scholarship in the field, but I honestly couldn’t remember them all as the small trickle of podcasts turned to a deluge.”

This database is her attempt to turn chaos into order while supporting faculty with no time or budget with ideas on how to methodologically diversify their courses. We are really looking forward to sharing what we’ve learned and learning from you all as well.

You can learn more about her research, teaching, and work at http://www.keralovell.com. Follow her adventures on Twitter at @keralovell and tweet her your podcast suggestions and use the #TeachingWithPodcasts hashtag! And more importantly, go listen to and support these podcasts. Many episodes not only feature historians but are even made by historians. Subscribe to their shows, send us your reviews, and incorporate them into your classes.
