Third Survey Results Posted
Perfection is and will remain an aspiration, but from among those of you who did respond I think we've found a reasonable balance between having some direction and letting the class go ahead. Topic seems to matter a lot for whether we can get good discussion and if there is resonable prior experience to tap into to make people feel they have something to contribute. It is a challenge to find such topics that do both that and tie in directly to the subject we're supposed to be discussing. I hope we can keep up with that, but do note that it is a challenge. So if while you are reading and reflecting you think you've hit on such a topic, please advance that. Good suggestions will make things better for everyone.
