Amid Focus on Affordability, A Call to See HEIs as "Laboratories" Where Getting It Right the First Time Matters Less than Learning from Mistakes
DeCiccio, Albert
New England Journal of Higher Education, Dec 2014
People are familiar with the Greek concept of "chronos", or chronological time, of which there is not enough. Perhaps everyone should embrace the other Greek concept of time: "kairos," or the "right time," the time when something remarkable is about to happen. The author believes that now is the right time for higher education to distinguish itself by becoming, from its leadership to its staff and students, a "laboratory" for learning. Laboratory learning, within and outside the classroom, provides a frame for the good work of higher education.
