In the frenzy of preparing for a new fall semester, I came across this article/blog about the idea that students feel entitled.  While I don’t actually agree with all of this guy’s statements (read the comments!), I do think that we are missing the mark.  We need to figure out how to help students see the student-faculty relationship as more akin to a doctor/patient relationship.  A relationship that has to involve both parties in the progress and treatment of a “learning” problem….?


My second “hmmmm” article from today is an interesting take on the skill set needed by faculty today.
