    Quotes from the episode





    I have been surprised at how some of us don't think about the cost of what we're requiring our students to use.

    -Ann Taylor



    It's the instructor that's making the difference, that's making the content come alive.

    -Ann Taylor



    If you're boring face to face and monotone or you just kinda mumble and separate, you're probably not gonna come across great recorded either.

    -Ann Taylor



    Text first, not video first.

    -Ann Taylor



    We start with the written word, and then we make sure that anywhere it's gonna make a difference or it's gonna engage the students, we incorporate multimedia pictures and graphics and interactive tools and video and so forth.

    -Ann Taylor

    Four Common Arguments Against DEI and How to Dismantle Them, with Amira Barger

    Four Common Arguments Against DEI and How to Dismantle Them, with Amira Barger

    Amira Barger shares four common arguments against DEI and how to dismantle them on episode 525 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.



    Quotes from the episode





    Many people who are at the margins often know from lived experience that the playing field is not level, and that there are biases that leaders and individuals across any and every institution have to mitigate.

    -Amira Barger



    Many people tend to view the work of diversity, equity, and inclusion as this sort of a 0 sum game. That idea of we're lifting someone else up means you have to push or bring someone else down. And that's not at all what we're trying to do this work.

    -Amira Barger



    It really is about leveling the playing field. It's not about taking things away, but it's about understanding.

    -Amira Barger



    What are you creating so that others can see themselves represented in the spaces they're in with you?

    -Amira Barger



    I try to very intentionally surround myself with people who believe and think differently than I do so that I can understand where they are coming from.

    -Amira Barger

    Toward a more critical framework for AI use, with Jon Ippolito

    Jon Ippolito on a more critical framework for AI use (amongst other topics) on episode 524 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.



    Quotes from the episode





    We need to either rethink what intelligence means, beyond the scope of simply being articulate and knowledgeable when it comes to to putting words together, or we need to think about what other values we want to promote and encourage and teach that go beyond intelligence.

    -Jon Ippolito



    It's a problem because the average of 2 facts is not necessarily a fact.

    Communication Literacy in the Age of AI, with Judith Dutill

    Judith Dutill talks about communication literacy in the age of AI on episode 523 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.



    Quotes from the episode





    In the college classroom, we don't often emphasize that type of communication as a skill that's worth teaching, talking about, assessing, and we focus instead on more formal types of communication.

    -Judith Dutill



    Communication is a very subjective thing, but I think there is a common definition that we could all agree on that effective communication is creating meaning and being understood.

    -Judith Dutill



    As we develop in higher education, many of us believe in multiple literacies.

    -Judith Dutill



    If your discipline involves speaking and listening, communication is at the center of it.

    Intersectionality, Power, and Pedagogy, with Clarissa Sorensen Unruh

    Intersectionality, Power, and Pedagogy, with Clarissa Sorensen Unruh

    Clarissa Sorensen Unruh shares about intersectionality, power, and pedagogy on episode 522 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.



    Quotes from the episode





    It is hard for students to accurately think about what their learning process looked like.

    -Clarissa Sorensen Unruh



    Not only is the system rigged for a certain dominant group, but it is purposefully sabotaging some groups.

    -Clarissa Sorensen Unruh



    The unfortunate thing about intersectionality is that once you start seeing the power lenses, you can never go back to not seeing the power lenses.

    -Clarissa Sorensen Unruh



    Our goal is not to get burnt out.

    The Myth of the AI First Draft, with Leon Furze

    Leon Furze shares the myth of the AI first draft on episode 521 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.



    Quotes from the episode





    We need to provide opportunities for people to find things hard, to persevere, and to see if they come out the other side.

    -Leon Furze



    For me, brainstorming, idea generation, drafting, all of that is far more important than the finished product itself.

    -Leon Furze



    If we're going to accuse students of cheating and then allow professors or or educators to use the technology for assessments, that's hypocritical, and probably quite condescending.
