Increasingly, staff cite poor student engagement (e.g., lack of interaction with learning resources) as a barrier to learning, with students also commenting that the timing and length of lectures result in non-attendance. A challenge faced by staff, therefore, is to generate alternative or supplementary methods of educational delivery which overcome these issues and stimulate students{\textquoteright} engagement in their learning.Methods: The Participation and Performance Podcast was created and five episodes were released to students. The podcast captured discussions between the host and experts as they explored and examined core and contemporary areas of SEP (e.g., stress and coping, sedentary behaviour).
