ICYMI: Some Recent Happenings
Catch up on all my hot takes on higher ed this past month
September was a busy month of podcasts and writing about my work in the higher education space. Check out my most recent happenings below.
Interview with Jason Steffen on HorizonSci Twitch
I returned to the HorizonSci Twitch channel to have a live hour and forty minute conversation with UNLV physicist Jason Steffen. We had a great conversation about our experiences in the classroom this semester, what we’ve learned about online learning during the pandemic, and what knowledge evolutionary psychology has to offer about social networks and families.
Long Form Conversation with Xavier Bonilla on Converging Dialogues Podcast
I returned to the Converging Dialogues podcast to speak at length (3 hours!) with Xavier Bonilla on all things related to higher ed. We talk about public vs. private education in the US and the role of government in regulating education. We discuss the limited focus on teaching and improving the classroom experience as a result of a primary institutional focus on peripheral student life activities on today’s campuses. Issues of scaling educational offerings in the modern educational ecosystems, and much more!
Op-Ed Published in Inside Higher Ed
I recently published an op-ed in Inside Higher Ed focused on a recently published research report I authored as part of my role in the College Innovation Network. Read to find out why some students are struggling with online learning and what faculty can do about it in their classroom.
