Welcome!

The Wired Ivy Podcast is a labor of love. Dan and Kieran enjoy having conversations about online instruction and programs, and wanted an excuse to chat about these topics on a regular basis, together and with others. Since we both work virtually, live in different states, and have colleagues who are geographically scattered as well, we also miss having opportunities for informal interaction with other educators.

Famously, it’s disrupting higher education as well.  Because for the foreseeable future we cannot gather in groups like classrooms, professors and students involuntarily had to move online.
