Jen Apgar – Getting Reflective, Why Podcast?, and Productive Struggle

By Chris Cluff

It’s amazing how many rabbit holes one man can encounter when he’s chasing squirrels! Join Chris Cluff as he finds, explores and pushes the boundaries in education.

I got a process for approaching a podcast. I usually lurk the blogosphere and twitter profiles once I find a person who piques my interest. After that my mind races, I shape questions, and then connect with the potential guest. Remarkably, cold calls and boundless curiosity have brought phenomenal people into my little EDUniverse. The plan for talking with Jen was broad and there were a few checkpoints that I thought we could pass through. As it happens when you meet a kindred thinker, single topics are enough. Jen and I got into the complexities of teacher reflective practice and never completely got out…and I loved it.
