Mind the Gap

Mind the Gap: “That’s because there’s a yawning void in most organizations between idea generation and actual implementation”. If this gap exists in businesses, it’s certainly worse in academic environments. Not all ideas can be implemented – resources, time, expertise, willingness, and how well the idea is connected to leadership impact the likelihood for success. I genuinely feel that our current problems with education are not due to lack of ideas. The missing element: lack of compelling vision. Most instructors are doing the best they can within the constraints of their work. What is generally needed is the structure of effective functioning (i.e. the ideals to which we aspire as education). If educators have a voice in the creation of those principles, the ensuing change is much more personal and intentional.
