    Episode #9 Sarah Faulx

    Episode #9 Sarah Faulx

    What do you think of when you imagine what attunement looks like? 

    How often do you practice active listening?

    --

    In this final episode, Sarah Faulx will share her experiences as a therapist. Again - so much of the ways in which we are human are amplified when we are in a teaching or therapy setting. How we as educators/therapists harness that humanness will vary. Some are boisterous and grab attention with humor. Others are quick to react. Still others lose themselves in the lecture. There is no one-size-fits-all. However, one thing seems quite clear following at least a year of pandemic pedagogy. Collective trauma requires a reset in the whichever type of classroom we are dealing with ... resetting our thinking, listening, and understanding. 

    Stay tuned for our LIVE Reunion episode as well as plans for Season 2!!!

    Episode #8 - How to Make Caring Creative: Attendance Animals, My Little Ponies, and PSYC 101

    Episode #8 - How to Make Caring Creative: Attendance Animals, My Little Ponies, and PSYC 101

    Rachel Kallem Whitman is an adjunct professor of Psychology at Duquesne University. She is also a writer, activist, and someone I am honored to call my friend. The crux of our conversation is based upon the shared understanding between us that educators should be making learning possible by making sure that students feel safe. Though we didn't reference it in this conversation, Rachel and I have spoken many times about the concept of shared vulnerability. By showing our students that we are human, they are hopefully able to feel safe.

    Episode #7 - Sean Yeager

    Episode #7 - Sean Yeager

    “The goals isn’t to drag them across the finish line — to check the boxes. It is to help them learn” - Sean Yeager. Shouldn't that be the goal for all of us? Take a listen to Sean's perspective on interdisciplinary teaching, radical inclusivity, and not taking anything for granted as 'universally understood'. Through this combination of methods, Sean has created a pedagogy that prioritizes intellectual growth without doing so at the expense of a student's health and shows us that learning happens when our students feel heard, acknowledged, and respected. 

    A few shout-outs from this episode:

    - Sean mentions the course Strange Loops and Metamathematics at around 11:00. Sean would like to make sure that Douglass Hofstadter's name, as the author of Gödel, Escher, Bach, is highlighted. 

    - Similarly, Sean would like to make sure that his reference to "Amy" at around 16:00, refers to Amy Shuman - Professor of English at The Ohio State University. 

    - The mention of tea at the end should be attributed to Uncle Iroh (from "Avatar: The Last Airbender")

    Episode #6 - Nicky Kenline Lewis

    Episode #6 - Nicky Kenline Lewis

    I hope you are as lucky as I am to have friends with whom you can discuss a variety of topics that might span undergarments to philosophies of education. Nicky Lewis is that friend for me. Nicky is formally trained with an MAT; however, it is Nicky's way of deconstructing and re-constructing learning environments that, in my mind, showcase her educational prowess. She is also able to sift through what seems to be the overwhelming amount of bureaucracy that is inevitable in institutional learning and focus on what is most important - real learning objectives that are meant to provide her students with the ability to continue learning way after they have left her learning environment.

    Episode #4 - O'Ryan Arrowroot

    Episode #4 - O'Ryan Arrowroot

    In Episode #2, we heard Erin discuss the challenges of teaching ballet through the zoom platform. In this episode, O'Ryan will share with us what he sees as some of the benefits of teaching performance art through zoom. 



    I have learned so much through listening to colleagues of all stripes as they explain their teaching methods and challenges. O'Ryan brings me back to the original reason that I was drawn to the classroom - that feeling of mutual vulnerability and collaboration. Have you ever thought about why a clown might include deprecating tricks in their repertoire? Stay tuned to hear O'Ryan explain this and more.
