- Tiger Stories, the official podcast of Chattanooga State
I have produced all of the episodes for this podcast, and hosted most of them (except in summer 2020, when I recruited students to interview campus officials about how COVID had impacted their work).
- The Liz Cast, my personal podcast
- Jump Start Your Learning, a YouTube series for students created in the 10 days before fall 2021 classes began
- My YouTube channel, which includes many explainer videos made for my students
- Web syllabus for my spring 2022 American Government courses
I build my syllabus in Google Sites so that it’s more accessible on mobile technology than our LMS. As a bonus, it’s also available after the course ends; students lose access to their LMS course the day grades are due.
- Content library for American Government students
This library of activities and simulations — including Checkology — is what my students sample from when completing their work for the course. The large collection of podcast episodes, videos/films, and readings allows each student to choose topics and activities that match their interest and their existing knowledge levels. As it is also outside an LMS, former students tell me that they still return to the Content Library regularly to explore resources, even though they aren’t “required” to do so!
