Had a conversation with a friend last night who's finalizing her syllabi for the fall, and we talked about moves that can signal a commitment to equity in higher ed pedagogy. Thread.

It goes without saying, but we need to say this more often and louder. Adequate financial support for PhD students during the academic year AND summer months reduces the need to find alternative sources of income, time that should spent on research and writing.

During the summer I meet with students to co-construct the syllabus for our fall capstone course. Each year their ideas shape the direction of the course, and push us to new places made possible only through this joint effort. When you trust your students, it pays off.

what would nirvana look like in ? what I think: - coconstructing goals - prompts feedback seeking - involves dialogues - performance information rich - action plans on authentic work - feedback loops (long & short) - edu alliance - safe and challenging space

Being kind is important. Being patient is important. Being curious is important. Being brave is important. I value these strengths in my colleagues as much as I do intelligence, strategic thinking, and the ability to use excel (which to be honest I need to work at)

It’s surprising & depressing how, when the work of the semester begins in earnest, one can begin to feel the sense of scarcity that is permeating , a scarcity that breeds mistrust & antagonism between faculty & staff and faculty & students. Teaching, however, done 1/6

Right now my course syllabi read more like an iTunes agreement than a course outline and schedule. Thanks required components for various accrediting agencies!

You know you've been in for too long when your CV practically needs its own glossary of acronyms. Then again, my people know how much I love guessing acronyms.
