    The Coronavirus Goes Coronaviral

    The Coronavirus Goes Coronaviral

    Following up on our previous show on Kobe, The Impeachment Trial, and Everything, today we explore the ins and outs of the Coronavirus which is receiving tremendous media attention. Mike works through his version of Michael Jordan's "Flu Game" as we once again explore how to engage and/or turn off the Mass Hysteria Spectacle Machine when things like the new variant of the coronavirus happen. What do we need to know about the new coronavirus? How do we stay engaged enough without falling prey to all the hype?
    You can start by listening to this episode.

    The Futures of Higher Education with Bryan Alexander, Author of Academia Next

    The Futures of Higher Education with Bryan Alexander, Author of Academia Next

    This week Mike engages with noted author, speaker, and futurist, Bryan Alexander to discuss the challenges and potential futures emerging for higher education focusing on the US. Bryan has recently authored a book called Academia Next in which he explores trends and describes multiple possible futures for the higher ed ecosystem.
    What are the threats that are emerging to the traditional model of higher education in the US? How do adjuncts fit into the picture? Is Clayton Christensen's concept of the Innovator's Dilemma relevant to the future of higher education or are there reasons why it doesn't apply?
    We explore all of these questions and get Bryan to describe several of his possible futures during a free-flowing and imaginative conversation about where the world of higher education is heading. And we also talk a bit about science fiction for good measure.
    In all, we got a lot out of the conversation and hope you find value in listening.

    Kobe, the Impeachment Trial, and Everything - Living in Interesting Times Edition

    Dan and Mike regroup to reflect on the relentless media barrage that is life in 2020. We take time to talk about the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and seven others in a helicopter crash. Despite the tragic nature of the story, was it somehow a wake up call for the importance of family? Our leading #girldad weighs in. At the same time, the Impeachment Trial approaches its conclusion as global fears of the coronavirus pick up, how does one find balance and focus amid all of this?
    Needless to say, the collective zeitgeist is fraught these days, but we have some recommendations based on learning science that steer us towards quiet time to reflect and consolidate things into long term memory.
    Yes, we’re living in interesting times in 2020, The key is to control what you tune in and tune out amid the spectacle. Embracing a little JOMO can help.
    Thanks for listening.

    Does Implicit Bias Training Really Work?

    Does Implicit Bias Training Really Work?

    Melissa, Dan, and Mike dive into the complicated topic of implicit bias and the spate of recent training programs based on the concept. Does raising awareness of unconscious biases drive positive change or is it a necessary, but not sufficient, component in a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging program.
    A lot comes down to how you measure success and how much the program is integrated into the broader organizational culture. So it turns out, it’s complicated.
    We hope you enjoy joining us as we begin the conversation.

    Five Predictions for the Future of Work with Frank Britt, CEO Penn Foster

    Five Predictions for the Future of Work with Frank Britt, CEO Penn Foster

    This week, Mike sits down with Frank Britt, CEO of Penn Foster, to talk about the future of work from the perspective of "middle-skilled" employees. Middle skill jobs require a high school degree and some additional training, but do not require a bachelors degree. Middle skill jobs account for roughly half of the jobs in the US, and that figure is not expected to change much in the 2020s.
    Frank explains the impact of automation on middle skill jobs and the importance of empathizing with this part of the workforce and the social impact of providing training to this workforce to protect their ability earn. We also touch on "outskilling," "first-mile" services, and some forward thinking about how the middile skills educational marketplace will transform in the next decade.
