Were you talkin' about me?

Yes, people might be talking about you, especially if you attend our live episode of the #TeachingLikeTedLasso podcast at GVSU's Math in Action Conference on February 25, 2023.

Here's the description of the live session:

We started the Teaching Like Ted Lasso Podcast because we BELIEVE in the rich connections we saw between teaching and the positive and popular Apple TV show. No knowledge of the show is required - just an interest in improving our teaching! CURIOUS? Then please join us for this live episode, where you are the special guests sharing what works for you.

The plan for our 10 episode podcast is to attend to 10 major themes that connect the show and teaching. Thus far, we have explored five themes: PlayCuriosity; Teamwork; Vulnerability; and Discourse. Because we are at the halfway point, we see the live episode at Math in Action as a retrospective - a way to reflect on what we've learned and add voices to the conversation. Participants in our Math in Action session will have the opportunity to share with each other (and potentially the world) how they see their teaching practice connecting to these themes.

Even if you are not going to be in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area on the 25th of February, there are a couple of ways you can still participate. 

Our session, like many others during the Math in Action Conference will be in a hybrid format. (The Conversations Among Colleagues Conference, focusing on teaching math, math education, and statistics in higher education, is taking place at the same time and also has hybrid session - two conferences for the price of one. You can see the schedules here and here.) That means you can Zoom in from anywhere in the world to participate and share your ideas.

Or, if you are busy that day, make a short (five minutes or less) video recording of your answers to the following questions and send them to us at

  • Who are you?
  • Where are you from?
  • What is your relationship to education? and
  • How do you apply [play, curiosity, teamwork, vulnerability, or discourse] in your teaching practice? 
If you send the recording before February 25th, we might be able to share it during the session. Recordings sent before March 1, 2023 will be considered for the retrospective episode. We cannot guarantee that everyone's response will make the episode, but we will do our best. If your answers do make it onto the podcast, we will create for you one of these handsome Teaching Like Ted Lasso trading cards. (So, you'll also want to send an action photo in your email - just in case).

You can register for Math in Action here. Please send you video responses to We are excited to add your voices to the Teaching Like Ted Lasso conversation.

PS: In-person participants might meet some of the stars of TLTL Theatre

and experience the added bonus of biscuits!
