With the first weeks of distance learning behind us, Fordham faculty members may be looking for some peer support and guidance when it comes to teaching remotely.
They’ll find some helpful advice in the new Twice Over podcast.
The brainchild of hosts Anne E. Fernald, professor of English and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies and special advisor to the provost for faculty development, and Steven M. D’Agustino, director of online learning, Twice Over is a spinoff of the town hall meetings Fernald and D’Agustino have both recently hosted to assist faculty members with the transition to distance learning.
Titled Twice Over “because to teach is to learn twice over,” the podcast hopes to provide “asynchronous advice” to faculty, with compelling conversation between the hosts and potential guests, questions from listeners, and interviews with people in the Fordham community.
Their inaugural episode, It’s Okay to Look like a Potato on Zoom, debuted on March 25 on SoundCloud. It includes discussion about “how to stay connected to our love of teaching as we struggle to redefine our classes and rethink our practices.” Check their SoundCloud page for new episodes. The podcast can also be found on Stitcher and Spotify.
