    About the guests Blake Everett Johnson is a Teaching Assistant Professor in the Grainger College of Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). He is also the Director of Undergraduate Instructional Laboratories 
     
    Lucas Anderson is a Specialist in Education at CITL. Check out his blog where he writes about developing a teaching philosophy statement and other teaching topics. 

    Episode Summary Who says engineers can’t have pizazz?! Ether through sheer silliness or deeply rooted pedagogy (or both – or neither!), Blake Johnson made low effort decisions to infuse some style into the pressure cooker situation of converting engineering lab courses into an online modality within a week to accommodate pandemic response in March 2020. Here’s a link to a sample of these lab videos sent to students in lieu of them being in the facility: Stylized Remote Lab Procedures Example - ME 320 Lab 5. 
     
    Listen to his reflections on the process of converting labs under impossible circumstances all while maintaining his fun - yet rigorous - teaching affect.

    About the guests Daniel J. Simons is a Professor in Department of Psychology at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. 
     
    Emelie Mies is a Technology Support Specialist at the Center for Innovation in Teaching & Learning at UIUC. 
     
    Episode Summary Thinking about one’s thinking is a rather unintuitive and fraught process, especially if we’re in a learner/student context! But this conversation, and Prof. Dan Simons research, might be a big help to jumpstarting that metacognition analysis. Hope you enjoy some connections between scam artists, signal to noise, pattern bias, incentive structures and a student’s journey through higher education.

    Episode Summary Flipping the classroom is nothing new. We wont win any awards with this conversation about what’s become a tried and true method for increasing engagement and improving learning outcomes for certain college curricula. But... hearing Soo’s purpose, methodology and advice to others is sure worth a listen! If you want to reprioritize your course to better prepare your students for life beyond school (where timed exams rarely exist and team-based projects are everywhere), then we think you’ll get lots out of this conversation!
