3 Tips: Rip Van Winkle Looks for a Job

“The last time I personally looked for a job was some 29 years ago when in 1990 I applied to a dozen universities for a tenured faculty position in engineering…I recall this history, because that 1990 search was of a different era. A few of the applications were sent by email, but many of them were submitted through the Post Office (!!?) as printed documents, and it was largely a person-to-person old-fashioned kind of search that was common decades ago. Thus, it was with some trepidation last week that I volunteered to work with a close relative (call her Andrea) to help her find a job in the age of online applications (Monster, Indeed, ZipRecruiter, etc.).”

Deep Shift #1: Obedience to Courage

“A shift is a small change to something we already do well that gives great power to effect change in ourselves and/or others.

And in this definition lies the blessing and the curse of shifts. Shifts are changes to things we already do reasonably well. For example, our ability to listen can be shifted to give us much greater power in conversation, but when you ask someone to consider making a change to how they listen, it can be difficult to even get their attention. “Oh yes, listening,” they’ll say, “I’m already a great listener,” and the person turns off to the very idea that there is something to learn here.”

5+1 Shifts to the Deep Missing Basics

“Some of the earliest learning of the iFoundry adventure led to a key insight of what’s missing in education today. Other insights have come from coaching, training, and consulting interactions. All were combinations of theory and practical insight. Here we use the term shift to denote a small change to something we believe we already do quite well. ”

The Web & Returns to Expertise

“Expert this and expert that. If you listen to modern advertising copy and the media (and to university professors) the most important thing in the world is to become an expert, but something funny happened on the way to the expertise forum…”

NPR’s Jazzed About Work: “Educators Should Create Change” with Dave Goldberg

Dave Goldberg was recently interviewed on NPR’s Jazzed About Work hosted by Beverly Jones produced by WOUB Public Media.

“It’s time for university leaders to get serious about changing the way they teach students, says higher education thought leader Dave Goldberg, in this episode. Dave says it’s time to change higher education from the inside out. He says that, in preparing students for their careers, educators should help students shift their focus away from obedience to authority, and, instead, guide them towards the development of human values. The change in the teaching of students should resemble the way that the job of leadership is changing…”

Big Beacon Radio Ep. 15: Future Proofing Higher Education and the STEM Pipeline

BB Radio HeaderEp. 15 – Future Proofing Higher Education and the STEM Pipeline

The movement to transform education in line with the imperatives of the 21st century is a global phenomenon in which worldwide technological and economic forces collide with national culture and local institutions and customs. In this show, host Dave Goldberg gets two views from Canada. In particular, Dave interviews H. J. (Tom) Thompson, President of Olds College, to understand how to future proof higher education, and STEM game change Gina Cherkowski to understand and enhance the pipeline of students who are technologically literate and competent. Join Tom, Gina, and Dave for a lively discussion about how educational change takes place, with special emphasis on the ways in which such change lands in a Canadian context.
