Just a blurb. Daniel and Rob try to make a blurb for another podcast and fall into an episode ranging from past lab experiences, to debriefing another end of semester, to new attempts at online programs. Needless to say, the blurb didn't pan out. (Standard disclaimers: especially the part about our views and our employer’s views. They aren't equal.…
 
Bleeping New Material. Daniel and Rob with a new SD card and an almost end of semester podcast. When do you stop introducing new material in class? And what's the point of academic publishing? (Standard disclaimers: especially the part about our views and our employer’s views. They aren't equal.)Bởi DM Martinez
 
Copywrite Error. Bonus Episode. Daniel starts ranting and Rob grabs the microphones for a shortened episode about figure captions and attribution in books.

Listen to my podcast. Daniel and Rob squeeze one last podcast into the year. In this episode they talk about the many roles of the professor, student evals, with a quick Q&A from student X or Y, and Rob's welcome message to new faculty--which involves telling them to listen to the podcast. (Standard disclaimers: especially the part about our views …
 
Pop-up podcast. Rob makes Daniel make a podcast. In this episode they talk about pop-up courses and a controversial one that caused a slight national stir. What place do these have in different fields and do contingents dare run them? (Standard disclaimers: especially the part about our views and our employer’s views. They aren't equal.)…
 
Attention span and other things. Daniel and Rob make another podcast! This time about the attention span myth (TED talks? Blah) and a little bit about how your brain processes information. Plus, Rob gets distracted by his phone. (Standard disclaimers. Especially the part about our views and our employers' views. Not necessarily the same.)…
 
Daniel and Rob start a new season talking about the end of another semester and trials and tribulations of trying to get a new class enrolled. The big theme for this episode is the role of math testing in determining class placement and why it matters to departments outside of mathematics. They end with a small preview of the upcoming season. (Stan…
 
Daniel and Rob come together for an in-between season podcast to catch up. Keeping the riff to about an hour this time, Daniel and Rob talk about what it takes to write a book, what you can try to negotiate if you are lucky enough to secure a tenure-track contract, and briefly about the BLS and what we can tell our students about employment potenti…

Daniel and Rob, stemming from a not so great student evaluation, discuss the state of etiquette in the classroom and (perhaps) the need for more detailed and explicit guidelines for how students should expect to behave in the class and out. Everything is laid out, from salutations, to email form, to the employer's desire for better soft skills from…
 
Daniel and Rob start out the summer break with a discussion on how to plot out trajectories for research and teaching and the implications for those on and off the tenure track. After the regular back forth on the topic, they finish off with a little bit on tenure myths. (Standard disclaimers apply.)…
 
Daniel and Rob sit down to talk about the noticeable decline in attendance as the semester wanes and discuss strategies on how to combat that effect, looking at k-12 and higher ed examples.

Daniel and Rob sit down during spring break to talk a bit about mentors and their importance, as well as the growing trend to go academic rogue and what that means (inspired by the blog postings of a rogue linguist, Alison Edwards). But first, Daniel can't help but clue Rob in on academic twitter and a firestorm that happened when an undergrad said…
 
Daniel and Rob carve out a little more time to continue their talk about the annual review process, with some additional discussion spent on goal setting and the departmental review process. But first things first, Daniel finds literature to support his problem with multitasking.

Daniel and Rob fit one last ep into 2016 and discuss the really bizarre world of normalizing adjunct status at the institutional level by processes and methods known as onboarding. Daniel and Rob go back and forth trying to figure out if this is a good thing or if it further exploits a precious resource. Special end of year outro for those that man…

Daniel and Rob discuss a (really long) presentation that Rob developed about the need for decency as an Academic Chair in order to create good departmental culture.

Another Contingent Story. Daniel and Rob finally lock down another interview! This time with Lisa, a humanities PhD/Adjunct, discussing her path to contingency.
