My name is Laura.
I will be the instructor for this course.
This is an asynchronous online course “Narrating a Recipe” therefore the success of this course depends on you keeping up with the syllabus, your level of involvement with this site and the online activities that have been planned.
Even though it is asynchronous, it does not mean that there is no time component — in fact, the success of many of the activities depends on your participation in a timely manner.
The focus of this course is to prepare you for narrating a recipe, both as a presentation and a podcast. Regarding the presentation, this course will help you learn how to deal with public speaking anxiety. Also, this course will prepare you for planning and recording your own podcast show. You’ll learn more about podcasts and their rising popularity and get acquainted with some of the most popular food-related podcasts.
But first, let’s get to know each other. If you have not already done so, please post a message in the “Introduce Yourself” group, describing your background, expectations for this course, and any concerns you may have about online learning or communication online. I am looking forward to the course of narrating a recipe. I hope that together we can make great foodcasts!
