Taking the Long View: Ten Recommendations about Time, Money, Technology, and Learning
Ehrmann, Stephen C.
Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, v42 n5 p16-22 Sep-Oct 2010
How can a degree program, general education program, or other course of study make substantial, widely appreciated improvements in who learns, what they learn, and how well they learn it? Under the right circumstances, such improvements are possible. This article presents suggestions, some counter-intuitive, that increase the chances of their being successful and sustained. Ten recommendations centered around issues of time, money, technology, and learning are offered. The first five recommendations are designed to achieve the kind of educational improvement that could meet these requirements: time-saving in the short term and ultimately beneficial for the "who, what and how" of learning. The final five recommendations are offered to guide campus teams in carrying out such improvements. (Contains 9 resources.)
