    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: In first-year composition courses at LaGuardia Community College, one learning objective is developing rhetorical awareness. By building in live speakers and live audiences, a podcasting project makes the concept of a “rhetorical situation” more concrete. Podcasting can be an informal, low-stakes assignment, or it can serve as a more in-depth final research assignment. One useful resource for those experimenting with this genre is the composition textbook Compose, Design, Advocate, by Anne Wysocki and Dennis Lynch, which takes a rhetorical approach to creating various kinds of multimedia artifacts. Wysocki and Lynch suggest that writers outline the moving rhetorical parts of a task (purpose, audience, context, strategies, medium, arrangement, and testing) through a document they call the “design plan” (345). The attached PDF includes an outline of a four-stage podcasting process. It also includes two sample student design plans, directions for interviewing and for creating a bibliography, and a grading rubric for a podcasting project.
