In this episode Eric interviews Raechel Soicher from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge, MA. In 2022, Raechel became the Assistant Director for Research and Evaluation in the Teaching + Learning Lab. Raechel earned her doctorate during the pandemic and started in an instructor position while also contributing to the Center for Teaching and Learning at Oregon State, her alma mater. Those experiences led to a job search, where Raechel eventually landed at the MIT Teaching + Learning Lab. We discuss job markets in general, costs of living, and making decisions about quality of life issues, and she also reflects on her teaching experiences at Oregon State.
