We will get our audience to do, as we show and tell, before reviewing and asking along the way.

Higher education is broken. I’ve talked to educators and administrators from the most famous institutions on the planet. All of them have horror stories of how impossible it is to overcome the baggage, the traditions, the paradigm that is higher education.

The system is broken and at this point it’s hard to find anyone or any way to fix it.
