This article made an impression on me – I need to follow up on some of what they’re doing. It’s a summary of different people doing cool stuff with innovation in education, brought on by technology. I heard Wiley speak when I was a grad student and was pretty impressed, now I want to follow up on Western Governors University – this question about focusing on competencies and exams ties in with this piece in the NY times talking about the End of the University. It does match the problem I see – few people, as much as we talk about how great it is to have information online, wants the degree without accreditation.
I don’t know about the term EduPunk. It’s cool, I like punk and everything, but I think it diminishes…well, I take that back. I’ll have to chew on it.
