Innovation in higher education has a bad reputation, but it is a noble idea. In fact if we look at it right, it could be a north star.
You have to build trust with students around alternative grading, but they aren’t the only ones with whom we might need to build it.
I am worried not so much that we are losing students, funding, or our currency with the general public. My worry is that we're losing our nerve.
In 2022, higher education needs less of a few things and more of their opposite.
We talk about "buy-in" when we discuss teaching innovation, but that's not what we really mean.
