Episode | Show Notes

More than education, more than experience, more than training, a person’s level of resilience will determine who succeeds and who fails. (Steven M. Southwick & Dennis S. Charney)

Back to Campus Pandemic Teaching

21 minutes
Kevin uses his experience as a wild animal trainer in introducing sea lions, lions, and tigers to new furniture, props, and behavior as an analogy for how to get used to the new "pandemic teaching" environment as we return to campus. And, perhaps more importantly, how to get our students comfortable in the changed campus environment.
