Teaching Audio Playwriting: The Pedagogy of Drama Podcasting
Eshelman, David J.
Teaching Artist Journal, v14 n3 p137-144 2016
This article suggests how teaching artists can develop practical coursework in audio playwriting. To prepare students to work in the reemergent audio drama medium, the author created a seminar course called Radio Theatre Writing, taught at Arkansas Tech University in the fall of 2014. The course had three sections. First, it focused on understanding what audio theatre is and how it differs from genres meant for silent reading and from genres like stage theatre. After establishing the basics, the course moved into script writing, first with adaptations from classic literature and then ending with original scripts.This article discusses the textbooks, the assignments, and the practicality of the course.
