On this week’s show: John Zuber. He talked with host Peter Medlin about teaching in the time of coronavirus. John is particularly fascinated by how it’s impacted his relationships with his students. He thinks so far doing classes online from his couch while traversing technical difficulties has made them more casual and maybe more personable.
They also talked about how his rural district is handling e-learning, why high school seniors feel a bit like Hamlet and how having kids changed how he thinks about his career. Oh, and he talked to Peter about what you should be cooking and experimenting with in the kitchen with while we’re all at home!
