Episode 90: Remote Learning – 4 Principles and Tools to Help

Here we are. Schools closed (perhaps for the rest of the year), interactions limited (in some cases by executive order), and questions abounding. How do we salvage teaching and learning during this time? What does that even look like? What resources can help?

Erik and Pete dig into those questions by presenting 4 essential principles for remote learning and tools and strategies to help implement them, such as:

  1. Organized structure
  2. Method for delivering instruction
  3. Method for discussion
  4. Method for giving and receiving feedback

Episode 87: How does relationship grow empathy? – with David Theune, Fulbright Scholar

You heard him first on episode 22 discussing his work to grow empathy in students by sharing student stories. David Theune has now returned from the Netherlands where he, as a Fulbright Scholarship recipient in 2018, began an international expansion of his vision for sharing story.

That experience has influenced David in several ways, both in the solidification and expansion of past and present thinking. Listen as David talks with Zach about the experience in the Netherlands and the impact it has and will continue to have on his work with students and other educators.
