Fixing Higher Education

Prof Douglas C Bennett, President of Earlham College, has suggested four steps toward "fixing" higher education in America:
  1. Fix the broken financing of higher education.
  2. Strengthen the focus on assessment of learning outcomes.
  3. End intercollegiate athletics as we know it.
  4. Build a national open access digital library system.
Change is coming to higher education, and all of the changes proposed by Prof Bennett make complete sense to me as a professional educator. Follow the link below to learn more...
