The first episode of the new year! Happy new year to everyone and we have a great conversation with Shea Swauger to start out 2021. We're covering the iniquities of proctoring and how those affect students and institutions. This is a long episode at around 90 minutes, but I tried to break it up into bite-size segments. This topic is insanely pertinent as we march toward the start of another semester that's likely to be remote learning for just about everyone, so have a listen and please, please share with your friends, colleagues, and faculty members who might benefit from a deep dive into why proctoring promotes discrimination. Show notes below!
