In late August, I recorded a podcast with the formidable Dr Shelli Ann Garland. Shelli is the host of the successful sociology of education podcast A Dash of SaLT. I was very motivated to want to be included as a guest on Shelli’s podcast, for two reasons:
1- SaLT in this case stands for Society and Learning Together (or as she points out Society and Learning Theories). What better way to learn together than through our alumni-ness! We can learn about our life after graduation in two ways. First, as individuals- the ‘what’s in it for me factor.’ We can also collectively as alumni we can learn, partner and build a better society.
2- I knew that as a society we need a wider, frank conversation about our alumni status. This is something so many of us have, but few of us really think about daily– but should!
A key quote: “We have to identify first as members of the alumni community to be able to connect with all these really exciting opportunities that are available to us.”
