Listen to Me

I host my own interview podcast for women in higher education, the agile academic.

I’ve also guested on podcasts and webinars to talk about my favorite subjects: Scrum, productivity, higher ed, faculty life, and faculty burnout. My most recent chat was with Dana Malone on the podcast The Academic Life on the New Books Network.

I spoke about burnout on several recent podcasts, including Teaching in Higher Ed, Tea for Teaching and Overcoming Working Mom Burnout. I also spoke about burnout on the Chronicle of Higher Education online forum, “Trends in College Students’ Mental Health.”

I appeared on Dr. Fatimah Williams’ podcast, Gradschooled, in November 2020 talking about burnout, culture, and care.

In August 2020, I was invited by Bryan Alexander to guest on the Future Trends Forum. We talked about well-being, burnout, mental health, compassion fatigue, and boundaries for higher ed folks going into a fall semester colored by COVID-19.

In April 2020, I joined hosts Dr. Mary Churchill, Dr. Lee Skallerup Bessette, and Meg Palladino on the View from Venus podcast to talk about productivity and burnout culture in higher education.

I was on the Lecture Breakers podcast with Dr. Barbi Honeycutt to share strategies for using Scrum to break up lectures, design courses, and get the right things done.

I joined Dr. Katie Linder on the Research in Action podcast to talk about the relationship between Agile and Scrum, How to use backlogs and sprints, and the joy of a good Scrum board. There’s also a bonus clip about how to use Scrum boards with students during group projects.

Dr. Bonni Stachowiak invited me to chat about Agile Faculty and Scrum on episode 219 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.

I sat down for a conversation with the folks at Top Hat for a webinar titled, “Balancing Academia: Managing Research, Teaching and Service Using Agile Methodologies” (sign in required, but can opt out after)

Curious about Agile Faculty, the book? Here’s a little book trailer I whipped up to introduce the content.

In 2014, I shared some tips with the Center for Engaged Learning about how to turn a simple folder into a Scrum board which students can use to organize project work and that faculty can use as a source of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) data.

Curious about Agile Faculty Life? I’d love to chat.
