The Galactic Cow: Conversations about teaching, the Universe, and everything

Jun 29, 2023

Are you feeling alone and isolated at the front of your classroom?  Disconnected from your students, your colleagues, maybe even yourself?  

Teaching has become a pretty isolated place and connecting with students feels more and more difficult.  But what if we could have a practical conversation about love in education?  How would bringing love and compassion to the front and center of teaching and learning transform our experience and education itself?

Join us as we relisten to 

The Urgent Need for Compassion with Alok Vaid-Menon in The Man Enough Podcast and Possibilities of Relational Loving with Kai Cheng Thom on the Possibilities Podcast (E32) for their guidance on love, vulnerability, risk, and change.
