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 Bonni Stachowiak of Teaching in Higher Ed, talking about the book, Unraveling Faculty Burnout.
I spoke about burnout on several recent podcasts, including 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.”
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.
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.
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.
