Using Podcasts to Learn

  • Ideal to listen to when using public transport / walking
  • Listen to the podcast
  • At the end of the podcast, write down everything you can recall (or make notes on your device/phone)
  • Relisten and at the end of the podcast, add to your notes in a different colour (you could redo this again at regular intervals)
  • Relisten again with your finger on the pause button. Write 5-10 simple questions to answer one week later (and at further regular intervals)
  • Frequently revisit your questions. Relisten to the podcast as part of the revision process and repeat above activities.
  • Some podcasts are long. Perhaps stop every 10 minutes to note down key information.
