Teaching in the invisible medium
*Subscription may be required
It is almost a truism to state that radio is the invisible medium - in the words of Peter Lewis, "radio is everybody's private possession, yet no one recognizes it in public".  However the ramifications of such invisibility are serious. It means radio is very much taken for granted as a background medium by its audiences. It means the impact of radio on our daily lives is under-researched and arguably under-valued as a result. It means that in a medium where the aim is precisely to erase all trace of technological artifice it is easy to underestimate or in fact ignore altogether the multi-faceted theory that informs this type of communication.
