A quick but interesting read. I’m really interested in this “pivot” happening right now in higher ed. I think, a couple decades from now, we’ll look back and realize we were going through a sea change in how higher education is funded and designed.
Big question, to me, is whether these systemic changes will end up benefiting students or if it will turn education into something even more classist than it is now, where people with money get to sit in actual classrooms with real human teachers while everyone else gets stuck in online courses.
But that’s a discussion for another day.
I write. I design. I cook. I read. I make music. I talk to people -- all kinds of people.
I used to teach and hopefully will do so again someday.
My dream job would be a cross between barrista and consultant, with a large helping of international travel and bohemian wandering through concerts, museums, galleries, and open spaces.
Somewhere back in time, my students started calling me "RameyLady" and the name stuck. I like it. There's a Ramey-man too. He's a much better writer but he seems to be too humble to share it with the world....at least, not yet.
