The Podcast Returns! WriteCast Episode #5: Five Strategies for Critical Reading

12 comments
Thanks to your feedback last year, we will be continuing the WriteCast podcast into 2014! Look for a new episode mid-month, with a few changes--shorter episodes, new topics, and new formats.




In our first episode of 2014, Nik and Brittany talk about a critical aspect of the writing process that students often overlook: critical reading. Tune in to learn five strategies to help you become a more critical and engaged reader. 

To download the episode to your computer, press the share button on the player above, then press the download button. Visit the Writing Center's WriteCast page for our episode archive and transcripts. Happy listening!

    1. Thanks, Rana! Making the episodes shorter was one of the decisions we made after reviewing the survey feedback. We're glad you like the format!

  2. I commented on the YouTube channel...but wanted to let you know that I'm going to use this with my Walden dissertation mentees in a discussion this quarter. Thanks too for including a transcript, as one of my mentees is deaf! Thanks for the quality work you all do!

    1. Wonderful, Darci! Thanks so much for letting us know! We haven't heard much feedback on our transcripts yet, so if your mentee has any suggestions or comments, we'd love to hear them either here on the blog or at wcpodcast@waldenu.edu. We'd also welcome any ideas you or your mentees have for episode topics!

  3. You guys do a great job! Walden should keep your program as an additional resource to Walden students. They should mention about WriteCast during WSRO class for new students.
