My Post titled “Redesigning Universities” is a fine example of a Canadian success story. The link below demonstrates how we, south and a bit west of the Canadian border are throwing words and theories at this issue, but failing miserably. The link leads to a video clip about the University of Hawaii’s flagship campus, and specifically the College of Education at the UH Manoa campus. It seems there is little doubt about the importance of education in the abstract, but when it comes offering more than words things quickly fall apart, pun intended. We might begin by treating our educators with the respect they deserve, paying them a fair wage, or even providing proper, well at least safe facilities. My second “hot topic” of the week.
Keep in mind that this is the College that is training our educators!
