Withstanding the Online Learning Backlash with Karen Costa

Karen Costa is a faculty learning facilitator specializing in online pedagogy and trauma-aware higher education. Karen loves leading faculty learners through fun, interactive, and supportive professional development experiences. She joins host Mike Palmer in a conversation about the recent backlash against Online Learning after the initial challenges during the response to the pandemic.

From there we get into the work. Karen’s at 100Faculty.com working with faculty and helping organizations become “trauma-aware” in these challenging times. We explore how to be an advocate for learners and educators trying to make a difference these days while providing tips on avoiding burnout. We discuss how inclusive of folks who embrace remote work while broadening the understanding of who might be learning through online programs and beyond. Karen recommends the book Minds Online by Michelle D.eee Miller along the way.

It’s a thought-provoking conversation you don’t want to miss!
