Education is changing

There’s been a lot of movement recently around how higher education can deliver more efficient and effective education. While I am a big proponent of in-class, face-to-face education the reality is is that we’re using that valuable time very poorly in most cases. We must rethink how we use that time with students to really develop skills and knowledge that they cannot learn on their own with the appropriate support including video, textbooks etc. Sal Khan demonstrates exactly this. If you’re interested in seeing where education in general is headed have a watch. I would love to hear your comments about this as well. Do you think this is the next wave or some ill-guided fad?
