Podcasting Academic Support Services

podcast logoI have been working with the Office for Student Affairs (OSA) and University Counseling & Consulting Services (UCCS) to record and produce a series of podcasts entitled Achieving End of Semester Success. The series is designed to bridge the gap between University counselors and students who do not want to have traditional counseling appointments. The podcast format instead allows the counseling advice to be downloaded and played on a personal computer or MP3 player.

The series currently includes the following topics:

  • Avoiding Procrastination
  • End of Semester Checklist
  • Finishing the Semester Strong
  • Managing Stress
  • Strategies for Finals Week
  • University Resources and Services

Special thanks to key collaborators on this project including Scott Slattery (director of Student Academic Support Services), who coordinated the podcast content contributors, and Timothy Kunau (bass, National Lutheran Choir), who voiced the intro and outro audio segments.
