Connecting the Dots

As another semester winds down I have found myself reflecting on many aspects discussed in contemporary pedagogy this semester! I know I have walked away with more questions than answers, but they are all questions I am excited to embrace in my future career.

I want to share a few final questions I have begun further contemplating..

How do we escape an emphasis on grades?
Should we completely forgo grades or strike a balance?
If not grades, what will metrics of accomplishment look like at a university setting?
Should attendance be mandatory?
What are effective strategies for evolving your classroom?
What is the future of departmental integration?
How do you effectively persuade your colleagues and department to embrace contemporary classrooms?

Please feel free to share your thoughts or questions you too are wondering about the future of university education!
