Year 3: Summary

This is a proposal to continue production on The Terry Project on CiTR.

By funding The Terry Project on CiTR for the past 2 years, UBC has become a leader in educational podcasting. Many universities broadcast unedited lectures and interviews with researchers. The Terry Project on CiTR is different. It is a fully produced news magazine show that mixes interviews, reporting, sound design and music into an entertaining narrative. Each episode profiles research produced at the University of British Columbia. Our programming extends into daily blog posts, a monthly discussion series and content for an interdisciplinary course, ASIC200.

If funded we will continue to create entertaining content with a broad appeal on and off campus. In doing so we will continue to work to connect UBC’s fragmented community (with particular emphasis on commuter students), foster interdisciplinary dialogue on campus and serve as a valuable outreach tool for UBC.
