The COVID-19 pandemic has acted as a bypass in which technological processes and tools that would normally have taken years to adapt and adopt in American institutions, have turned up as a new aspect of life in education. The rise of remote teaching is an opportunity to empower the learner in the virtual experience, and public health events are also affording us the ability to rewrite educational standards that need to be addressed for inclusivity to combat systematic racism and prejudices in our classrooms. 

In Part I of this podcast, I lay the foundation for the conversation with teachers and parents in Part II about the essence of online learning should be focused on flexibility and adaptability to enable students to reach greater heights and not be limited by a predetermined set of circumstances. I talk about a piece by Walsh (2020) that highlighted Silicon Valley runaway and NYU School of Business instructor, Scott Galloway, on what he calls "big tech's coming disruption in higher education" and how I connect that to K-12, and our society's collective need to discuss reforming our school systems for greater cooperation and comity of the American culture in the future.

Remote instruction has left many faculty in higher education feeling distressed, frustrated, or overwhelmed. I want to understand how higher education faculty, particularly tenured, full-time faculty in 4-year institutions, use Twitter to seek academic help. In my own observation and interactions, individuals who use Twitter to seek academic support formally and informally recognize the social nature of the network, and the sense of community in which their online interactions are able to help them feel more empowered to complete teaching in digital environments. 

So how can we move higher education faculty from passive help-seekers to active help-seekers using Twitter?

In the wake of the Coronavirus Pandemic, the need for considerable leadership is beyond requisite. How do we prepare ourselves for a better, more actionable future? How are we going to develop ourselves as more academically oriented leaders that understand the demands of tomorrow? Technology is not going away anytime soon, nor is it having a lesser impact in our daily lives. 

In this podcast, I discuss navigating the doctoral journey in the field of Educational Technology Leadership, and share my experiences and perspectives on why and how this has been the most important, life-changing journey for myself--and my students.
