Right Leaders of Wrong
A short conversation on Twitter about the oncoming revolution in Higher Education.
- It started innocently enough with a few sentences I threw out to the Twitterverse in the wee hours on a Thursday. Had been thinking about friends and colleagues that are brilliant teachers and wondering why they keep getting pushed out of academia. And why some of them have come to the conclusion that academia is not hospitable to them. It's a weird contradiction -- that in many institutions of higher learning, the folks most passionate about teaching and learning often get overlooked or even aggressively pushed out.

- Josh MagsamBest eye-opener comes when students say they want to take another class w/me and I have to tell them I'm not on roster; that's when the disbelief kicks in.2012-12-28T23:52:28.883Z
- Josh MagsamDitto re: classroom revolution, but also agree it's hard to engage students on this issue in writing classes.2012-12-28T23:46:08.759Z
