The College Fellows Audio Library project produces podcasts by University of Virginia faculty Fellows across Arts and Sciences that help students – particularly first-year students, but also those beyond the first year – to develop and hone ways of thinking that are at the core of many of their university courses. From good seminar citizenship to how to think empirically about the possibility of alien life, from how to argue about power to how to approach aesthetic form, the Audio Fellows have each produced their best ideas to introduce students to, and guide them through, the kinds of thinking they’ll be asked to do in the classroom.

The Audio Library has two series:

“How-to”: Each of these podcasts isĀ a nuts-and-bolts introduction to a big question, a particular way of thinking, or an unfamiliar intellectual object and how to approach it.

Coming soon! Keywords: Each of these micro-podcasts talks through a term that you are likely to encounter in your first seminar and lecture courses, but that is not easily defined or easily Googled. These are the ABCs of university.

The Audio Library is funded by a Learning Design Technology Incubator Grant from the University of Virginia.
