Episode 60 starts off with a political spin, a passion of Dr. Ann Marie Klotz, Dean of Campus Life at NYIT in Manhattan. Having just visited New York City, Lougan shares his experiences in the Big Apple, and naturally we talk about ramen, but not the cheap kind that you boil in college. We transition to talking about higher education, of course, and how residence life seems to be the gateway job to a career in the field. Ann Marie shares her view on what a work/life balance really is, and we end the show with a glass of Lemonade.
Episode 57 welcomes Matt Reed, Vice President for Learning at Brookdale Community College and author of Confessions of a Community College Dean, which began in 2004. Confessions of a Community College Dean is hosted as a blog on Inside Higher Ed, and can also be found as a book! Matt works to post once a day, Monday through Friday to the blog, which is a lot of work! We talk about commitment, dedication, and deadlines, while also thinking about work-life balance. Matt sheds some light on what he does every day, and we also chat about the Tennessee Promise program and other legislations starting to take effect in higher education across the country.

Episode 37 starts with a nice glass of wine and Aaron Rester, Assistant Vice President of Web Development at Roosevelt University. We “kick off” the episode discussing sports (get it?), and Jackie reflects on another loss for the Buffalo Bills. We also chat about work-life balance, specifically checking our work emails and discussing the most efficient way to submit work requests; through Snapchat or Vine. Apple has released its most recent iOS update, and we give a quick review on the highlights while talking about some photo features that we still don’t completely understand. We reflect on the movement of technology, failed demonstrations, and the internet, which leads to a discussion about the most effective website structure and navigation for an educational institution. And, we attempt to answer the question: which is better, audience-based, or task-based navigation?
