Excerpts from part one of three in this podcast series.

Podcast No. 233

Dr. Chip Espinoza:

All of my work is inspired by the students I teach.
My first inspiration came when I noticed a difference in my students from the 1990's to the 2000's.
My students of today are just waiting to raise their hands on a question.
When assigned a 10 - 12 page paper, they ask: "Is 10 pages a "C" and 12 pages an "A"?
Or, "How many classes can I miss and still get an "A"?
They expect that everything is negotiable.

They came in with the baseline expectation that they were going to get to participate, not only in what they were learning but in how they were going to learn. I realized that I had to make room for that.

Dr. Daniel de Roulet: It seems that what our students need is a real legitimate need for relationship.
They see me as someone to learn from and also to get to know.

Dr. Chip Espinoza: I believe there's been a redefinition of relationship to authority and power.
Today's young people do not need authority figures to access information. 


Please join us again next week for Podcast No. 234, part two in this series.

Until then, keep caring!
