 Portrait of: David GallagherPodcasting to New Possible Selves: The Potential of Podcasting for Learning and Identity

iROC - Investigating Research on Campus

Please be with us Thursday, April 6th when David Gallagher, Division of Education, presents Podcasting to New Possible Selves: The Potential of Podcasting for Learning and Identity.

Whether it is Serial, This American Life, or the latest comedy interview show, podcasts have taken off as a powerful new tool for sharing in the old practice of being moved by a story. Stemming from an interest due to several years of listening to podcasts and being an adolescent literacy researcher, Professor Gallagher will share research on the role podcasts can play in shaping learning and identity in and out of the classroom. Examples of podcast projects started that seek to expand possible selves will be shared during this presentation.

David Gallagher is Associate Professor of Education in the Division of Education. Dr. Gallagher graduated from Boston University with a degree in English Education and then earned a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from Michigan State University in 2007. With general research interests in adolescent literacy and learning, Dr. Gallagher has collaborated on research that examines project-based learning, third space theory, and the use of TED Talks to teach multiliteracies.

Podcasting to New Possible Selves: The Potential of Podcasting for Learning and Identity will take place April 6th at 12:45 p.m. in the DC Cafe. This event has been approved for College Connection FYE credit, but students at all levels are welcome. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
