Harvard University Holds Sound Education Conference

Sound Education is a conference put on by educational podcasters, for educational podcasters and their listeners. It will take place at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on November 2 and 3, 2018. Tickets are still available.

Educational audio producers are using the power of sound to bring learning out of the classroom and onto the airwaves. Their shows reach tens of millions of listeners a year – listeners who know that learning is a lifelong pursuit and see producers offering an ever-expanding course catalog.

Early arrivals to Sound Education will get a chance to attend a workshop hosted by veteran producer and consultant Eric Nuzum at PRX’s Podcast Garage. This workshop will focus on storytelling, character, and voice in podcasting. To attend the Three Things Your Podcast Needs workshop, you must register at the workshop’s official page.

Sound Education has posted a Schedule that they are working on finalizing. The schedule has information about nearly 50 panelists from across the educational audio spectrum – from radio hosts, to academics, to DIY podcasters. The conference is designed for producers of educational audio. The Conference is hosted by Harvard Divinity School.

A List of Speakers has been released. It has a photo of each speaker and a description what they do. These speakers are part of the Festival, which is designed for the general public. It includes talks from the Speakers, and the opportunity for people to hang out with their favorite hosts, to meet their fellow fans, and to connect with educators and students from around the country.
