    Transcripts, taxonomies and podcast websites with Bonni Stachowiak

    Transcripts, taxonomies and podcast websites with Bonni Stachowiak

    On episode 35, we get to talk with Bonni Stachowiak. Bonni is the host and producer of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast, an Associate Professor of Business and Management and Dean of Teaching and Learning at Vanguard University of Southern California. I talked with Bonni at the Teaching for Active and Engaged Learning Lilly Conference in San Diego, California, February 27-29, 2020. I was able to steal Bonni away briefly to talk about her recent additions to and reorganization of her Teaching in Higher Ed podcast website. It began with the additions of transcripts to all of her podcasts (which made her topics more “discoverable”) and then led to a taxonomy of searchable topics and other improvements along the way. In our conversation we talk about engagement strategies, blog posts, podcasts, storytelling, “choose your own adventure” stories, and even the harrowing story of the “Naked Dutchman.”

    Engaging Lilly Conferences with Todd Zakrajsek

    Engaging Lilly Conferences with Todd Zakrajsek

    This episode was recorded at the Teaching for Active and Engaged Learning Lilly Conference in San Diego, California, February 27-29, 2020. This conference is just one of the engaging Lilly Conferences organized by the International Teaching and Learning Cooperative and the fabulous ITLC team. This podcast also kicks off a series of four podcasts from the conference that focuses on UDL conversations that were discussed by participants or speakers that I had a chance to interview while the ThinkUDL team was there. We start out this series with the President and Conference Director of the ITLC, Todd Zakrajsek. Todd has been organizing Lilly conferences for years all over the country and the world and he has incorporated so many helpful and engaging tools that showcase the effectiveness of Universal Design for Learning principles in the conference format that I wanted to talk to him and tell our listeners about how different the Lilly conferences are from the traditional academic conferences.

    UDL and Culturally Responsive Teaching with Adam Nemeroff

    UDL and Culturally Responsive Teaching with Adam Nemeroff

    Welcome to Episode 32 of the ThinkUDL podcast: UDL and Culturally Responsive Teaching with Adam Nemeroff. Adam is a Learning Designer at Dartmouth College and has created a very innovative way to share his ideas about Culturally Responsive Teaching and inclusive design by using a Trello Board. This episode will investigate the ways culturally responsive teaching and Universal Design for Learning are related to and also inform each other, and Adam has organized this information using what he calls a “vision board” which he created using the Trello tool. If you are unfamiliar with Trello, we have provided links in today’s resources to investigate this tool further, and you will also find Adam’s Trello board there. We think you’ll find this discussion enlightening and full of ideas for how Universal Design for Learning principles and Culturally Responsive Teaching mutually uphold one another.
