This survey of current approaches to the teaching of radio studies in universities seeks to identify common themes and elements of such courses. In addition, it identifies notable examples of interesting, unusual and creative pedagogic approaches, based on contributions volunteered by university teachers of radio in Britain, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. The introduction by Eryl Price-Davies covers the variety of approaches to radio in UK degree programmes, which include theory and practice, critical listening skills, history and archives, vocations in the radio industries, and the actual practice of broadcasting within a course. The contributions that follow this illustrate international examples of some of these approaches. These include the pre-produced radio interview program as a lecture, "visualisation" lectures, web-radio production training, individual students broadcasting from an overseas / exhchange assignment, and programmes with a developed radio route - comprising several; modules or units.
