1Mar 24, 2013 4:42 PMThe two biggest problems I see with student learning are self discipline/motivation/expectation issues and absolute lack of complex thinking skills. So, I'd like to see us address those and I'd like to see it done in a way that would not be one-size-fits-all and centralized. I don't think the issues or the solutions are necessarily the same for all departments.
