Now I'm working on this problem from the other end. Suppose that, in a decade or two, some of the best, easiest, cheapest, and most educationally important techniques and materials we know of today had become quite widely used by 'mainstream' faculty all over this country. How could that have happened? What would funders, accreditors, university leaders, faculty champions and others need to have done in order for something so odd to have happened? I'm especially interested in improving the dissemination and effective adaptation of teaching techniques and resources in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).
I'll summarize some ideas, and sources, in this blog over coming months. In the meantime, if you have ideas, or suggestions about what I should read, or who I should speak with, please post it or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
