Dear Jim,

in the sense of the article, you have created, and helped keep alive,  an "idea market" in the the teaching breakfasts, as they ahve a cloud of users particiapte electronically, but a core discussion in person, early mornings are good for that.

Where I think we failed: we have no discussion among the faculty for example of the issue of grade inflation, and what it means - it moved to the experts (Steve and others), but this can not be an "ersatz" as we need to form a forum for collective consciousness. This is not the fault of the TB, but a default of our senate, where such faculty ideas cannot be discussed (why not?). Thank's to you, they are brought to the table.

Alas, the article points to one of my weaknesses - social media - and that the new universe has moved to them - but only advertisers seem to stive in it. How much do we need to play in this game? 

Good to have the breakfasts, and let's not replace the one medium with the other, but combine - face to face discussions should follow on the internet exchanges,

Achim

Subject: Last Teaching Breakfast Meeting of Spring - posted to TB list by Jim Greenberg

TBers,

This email is a reminder that the last TB meeting of the year will be May 6th at 8 am in the Starbucks café area in Hunt Union.  (The Hunt Union does not open until 8 am so don’t get there early) The topic for discussion will be the issue of “grade inflation.”  There has been some discussion about this issue already (via emails) but I would like to know more about what people thoughts are concerning this.  Is it something we should be concerned about?  Thinking about?  Talking about?  Yes, 25 years ago I can remember discussions about this issue – but it seems to me that something real might be going on here and we should talk about it, no?

On a completely different subject, but one related to teaching and learning, attached to this email is an article from the current issue of American Scientist (May – June 2010) by Alex Pentland entitled “To Signal is Human”.   I found the claims in this article intriguing as I think about my job here at the College -deploying technology to improve teaching and learning.  I know many on this list know more about the ideas and concepts presented in this article than I and I’d like to hear your thoughts.  A word  of caution, this article’s ideas may not be of interest to many on this list, so please only read this if you are interested.  My  apologies to the rest of you for filling your inboxes with unnecessary electrons.

Finally, as the year comes to an end  I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the TB.  We have had excellent conversations about our library, honors programs, centers for academic excellence and more.  They have been very helpful to me and I hope to some of you.  I look forward to more discussions next year and wish you all a relaxing, recharging summer.
