We have complex issues pressing the future of education. Technological advances are so promising, but the most at risk students typically do not have any personal technology equipment. Furthermore, we speak about "inclusiveness" but those "soft subjects" such as teacher attitude and presence and creating classrooms in which students feel safe from high stress environments, are avoided because these really cannot be measured. Then there are the assessment issues, which can be tantamount stress polarizing students when only tests, group projects, individual projects, and quizzes are the only assessment tools used. Finally, the view of higher education faculty have been stereotyped to be university professor/scholars in which their skill in research has gotten them tenure when students are satisfied with their teaching. We need a new vision of the 21st higher education faculty.
These are the questions I am grappling with, and hope to network with others about. Thanks
