Hello, and welcome to Episode 84 of the Planning Period Podcast, your #EdBreakroom. I’m your host, Brad Shreffler.
This week on the show I am joined by Tyler Tarver, Dean of NLC College in Arkansas, YouTube, podcaster, and writer. I recently sent out a tweet and asked for podcast guests, and some awesome members of my PLN retweeted and tagged others, and a bunch of people replied. Tyler is the first in a series of podcast blind dates.
Tyler and I talk about how he became a college dean, how he got into sharing content online, the damage that uniformity can cause in education, the need for differentiation and how we can balance that with our lives, the power of online learning, the disconnect between K-12 schools and colleges, why all teachers should record what they do and share it, how administrators can encourage teachers to be open, and the power of empathy.
So, sit back and enjoy Episode 84 of the Planning Period Podcast, my interview with Tyler Tarver.
