Educate, Explore, and Engage
with Cyndi Parker, Ph.D.
I have been teaching undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education courses for over thirteen years. I am now breaking out of traditional classrooms to engage people like you where you are. You are executives, teachers, entrepreneurs, doctors, artists, and curious learners. You negotiate busy lives and cannot always attend traditional classes at universities and seminaries. I design educational materials for those of you who are curious and want to learn in a non-traditional environment. I make some of my published material available here along with the growing collection of podcasts and educational videos.
I am curious about everything from international experiences to random, local events that challenge my way of thinking. I invite the curious minded to engage with me and discover the brilliance in humanity and share perspectives different from our own. Such explorations require courage, and I can help. You are invited to my (podcast) table as I interview scholars and professionals who not only share their expertise but can speak about why they are motivated the way they are.
I vividly remember the first time I realized the value of experiential education. I climbed a hill, examined maps, sat on a pile of rocks, felt the sun on my skin, and watched as my professor pointed out ancient roadways and water systems. Every sense was stimulated, and everything I learned was anchored in the experience of my body as much as in the data in my brain. The educational experiences I offer in print, online, or through educational trips are designed with experiential education in mind. I hope you engage with me so together we interact with the world in a more informed manner.
