Going Remote – Supporting Ourselves

In the eighth episode of the S.A.F.E. Topics podcast, we continue our special series on Going Remote. As we enter the second week of remote instruction, hosts Sean and curry were joined by Casey McFarland (Kinesiology), Jeff Murico (Religion/Philosophy), Thao Ha (Sociology), and Rachel Hastings (Communication) to discuss how we can continue moving forward as faculty and for our students.

What to listen for:

  • The importance of moving.
  • Taking care of our pets during these times.
  • “Corona cut” hair cuts.
  • The realities of working from home.
  • “Silent struggles.”
  • Ensuring our students get adequate resources.
  • Being flexible, forgiving, and structured.
  • Humanizing our experiences.
  • Practicing mindfulness and being in the moment.
  • Goals and routines.
  • “The Attitude of Gratitude”
  • Different perspectives on this moment in history.
