Rani Lill Anjum, research fellow in philosophy at Norwegian University of Life Sciences, is trying something new with her introductory philosophy course this term: she has replaced all of the readings with podcasts.
The experiment was prompted by the “digital teaching and screen overload” of remote teaching and learning during the pandemic. Podcasts, she notes, can be “enjoyed away from the screen, while going for a walk or just taking a break.”
Dr. Anjum makes use of podcasts such as Philosophy Bites, History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps, The Panpsycast, the BBC’s In Our Time, and others. You can check out her syllabus here. (Note: the syllabus starts with “Week 5,” but that is the beginning of the semester; the number refers to the week of the year, not the week of the term.)
