2.7 Changin' Times
Wow, things have chaaaanged and are still a-changin'! Teachin' and learnin' things, that is.
On this first solo episode of 2022, I talk about how I've come face-to-face, in the last few weeks of full-time teaching, with how teaching and learning has changed in the year and a half+ that I was away from teaching for my full-time postdoctoral fellowship.
Topics include: uncertainty and flexibility; questioning attendance and participation practices; deciding not to assign any late deductions (extensions only!); negotiating synchronous vs. asynchronous teaching; coming back to teaching as a podcaster; and more! Listen in and tell me what your experiences with teaching in 2022 have been :)
- Jesse Stommel on attendance policies, pulling from his contributions to "The Attendance Conundrum"
- Zoe Todd on not having attendance policies
- My past and ongoing thinking re: attendance and participation has also been informed by the public work of Kaitlin Blanchard and sarah madoka currie
- Gratitude to Skydancer Louise Bernice Halfe and Tenille Campbell for the spicy poems that made us laugh and get playful in my second-year ENG class
- Brandi Morin on how "'Freedom' protests are white supremacy in all its glory"
- Cornerstone: Housing for Women
