Rob Parke and Michael Boyce explore with me what the tv show Severance would look like if it took place in higher ed (spoilers at very end – we warn you when to hop off)) on episode 424 of the Teaching in Higher Ed podcast.
Quotes from the episode
I think there is a culture of “I’m going hard for 9 months with very little boundaries and then I am off for the summer.”
Setting boundaries in my syllabus is me setting up expectations for work-life balance.
I think a lot of push on student-centered teaching almost encourages bad boundaries.
Many of us in our institutions don’t deal with grief well.
