Remember to Just Think
Harney, John O.
New England Journal of Higher Education, May 2014
This article picks up on columnist Mike Barnicle's lazy style and "I was just thinking" format in his column for the "Boston Globe." Using that model, John Harney shares a few of his thoughts on various education topics such as co ops, "competency-based education," and making civics part of the curriculum at Massachusetts state colleges. He also shares ideas brought home from a recent "summit" sponsored by Northeastern, WGBH, and the New England Council.
