UOW Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts recently hosted a delegation from the Asia-Pacific Broadcasting Union (ABU) for an intensive Power of Podcasting residential workshop led by Siobhan McHugh, A/Professor in Journalism. Delegates from China, Vietnam and Malaysia spent the week learning about podcasting’s potential as a new media format and developing a template for an ABU podcast series.

The group described the workshop as “inspiring” and enjoyed an informal barbecue to round off their visit. McHugh will visit China Radio International in 2019 to help complete the series, as part of a MOU between UOW and the ABU.
