Transactional Radio Instruction: From Pedagogy to Production



The TRI programs were developed and taught as a Community Development (CDV) course at the American University of Nigeria over three semesters. Each class was divided into two groups; one group for Literacy (English) and the other for Numeracy (Math). The course first explored the concepts of radio drama production, and how to integrate narratives and pedagogy into storylines. The class then focused on scriptwriting and production using both Adobe and Apple audio production packages. Sample scripts were first written and then, the actual scripts for the program. From both groups, two female students were selected to be the Radio instructors, in line with the plots of their stories.
