Stuck in Oldthink Muck

Mark Glaser writes in Mediashift about a recent visit to Ball State University and he rambles on about the issues educators are facing. How much of the old curriculum is worth saving? How much can be repurposed? How much new stuff do we need?

The educators amongst us have been wrestling with this for a while, some are close to a pin and some are close to running out of time. I have proposed a “Sherman Approach,” but accept that’s not going to happen where I’m at. And while we’re making progress, we’re still slipping further and further adrift of where the industry is headed.
