    Is College Obsolete? Rethinking Education with Nat Green

    Is College Obsolete? Rethinking Education with Nat Green

    In a recent enlightening discussion on the podcast, Dr. Paulie spoke with CEO of Futures Forge, Nat Green,  about the transformative shifts in education and workforce preparation. During their conversation, Nat compellingly argued that the traditional college path might not be necessary for many individuals. Instead, the key to success lies in acquiring the right knowledge and skills that align with actual market demands. The dialogue delved into how the future of hiring will focus less on degrees and formal credentials and more on a candidate’s abilities and practical achievements.

    The discussion also highlighted that a select set of skills and personal attributes significantly influence career success, yet these are not typically developed through conventional schooling.

    Improving Behavior in Education with BCBA-D Dr. Clarence Cooper

    Improving Behavior in Education with BCBA-D Dr. Clarence Cooper

    In our recent podcast, Dr. Clarence Cooper, a doctoral-level certified behavior analyst, joined Dr. Paulie to delve into the complex world of behavior analysis consulting in classrooms. Dr. Cooper discussed the significant challenges behavior analysts face when working in educational settings. Key among these is the difficulty of applying ABA strategies within existing classroom management frameworks, often exacerbated by educators' varying levels of familiarity and comfort with ABA methods.

    Dr. Cooper emphasized the critical importance of involving all stakeholders—teachers, administrators, parents, and students—in the consulting process. Building strong relationships with these groups is essential for success, as it fosters a collaborative environment where ABA techniques can be more effectively integrated and accepted. This collaborative approach not only enhances the implementation of ABA strategies but also ensures that interventions are tailored to meet the unique needs of each classroom and student, ultimately leading to more positive outcomes.

    The conversation with Dr. Cooper highlighted that while the path to effective classroom consulting as a behavior analyst is fraught with challenges, the potential rewards—improved student behavior and learning outcomes—are well worth the effort. By focusing on stakeholder involvement and relationship building, behavior analysts can navigate these hurdles and make a meaningful impact in educational settings.
