The funny thing is, the first time I heard a report on podcasting on Radio 4 was when I got in the car at 6am to drive on a long journey for a work meeting. When the report was over I expected the Today programme, only to hear that the BBC was on strike. How ironic!

I'm not much of a blogger mylesf, but I am very much interested in your central points which are, as I understand them, that how we define education and what constitutes learning are undergoing fundamental transformation in the academy. From Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies programs to the Learner Centered approach (as defined by Maryellen Weimer) to Team Teaching strategies for transcending traditional disciplinary boundaries to incorporating technologies as means to transcend other kinds of boundaries (between students; between students and faculty; between the classroom and the real world, etc.), teaching faculty are seeking new ways to assess our outcomes and how we achieve them. Under scrutiny are the processes by which students best achieve learning and our learning goals (how does one balance, for example, content and/or skills acquisition communication, writing, public speaking, critical thinking how do we define competence in each of these areas, and how do we seamlessly marry content-driven goals with skills-development goals these are very important issues). This reconceptualization extends from content and skills acquisition to assessment, too. At stake is not just how we assess the success of our own courses, or how we can best assess student work/ quality of learning and expression; also at stake is the teaching moment that assessment can provide that is, the opportunity to help students develop critical thinking skills by involving them in the process of assessment (a process which requires critical thinking).E-media and other kinds of instructional technologies really are the Brave New World in terms of providing endlessly adaptable tools in the construction (of University 2.0) process.The trouble is that creating the kinds of infrastructures require both risk, time, and resources. These are not insurmountable problems, but they can, at times, be considerable.
