Guest Dr. Dylan Barth joins hosts Tom and Kelvin to discuss the benefits of “self-care” and wellbeing to our students, our organizations, and to ourselves as online education professionals. The impact of decisions now on long-term sustainability is a theme.

Hosts Tom and Kelvin are joined by guest Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock (“Brocansky”) to discuss the importance of “humanizing” education. Humanizing is important generally for the design and teaching of actual online courses/programs, but in the COVID-19 era, humanizing remote teaching/learning is imperative.

In this episode, hosts Tom and Kelvin are joined by Angela Gunder and Jessica Knott to consider the powerful humanizing and empathy-building roles storytelling can play in online education. Tools and frameworks for incorporating story in courses, mentoring, and professional development are discussed.
