Some essays on assessment and its relation to governance that I would like to send my colleagues

…but I would appear to be preaching.

Chris Newfield

“In contrast to professional authority, which is grounded in expertise and expert communities, managerial authority flows from its ties to owners and is formally independent of expertise. . . The absence of contact with and substantive knowledge of core activities, in managerial culture, function as an operational strength.”

Dave Mazella

Paul Corrigan

And this whole site Teaching and Learning in Higher Ed is a true resource.

    And of course, “innovation,” which is related.
    Comment from Ignacio S-P: Innovation = let the corporate entity win huge, the consumers be free to choose without understanding the freedom they are supposed to have and have the people that actually produce the goods rot, unless you are “exceptional”

    Thanks for sharing my essay here and recommending the site. I’m so glad you found it a “true resource.” What a compliment, and exactly what I was hoping for. Off to read these other links too . . .
