Special Questions on my Mind

These questions arose for me from our 2-day conference:
1. If we can agree on the ideal balance between theory and practice in this program – how can this balance be reflected in SCHs? Or should it?
2. Should admission to the program be subject to affirmative quota? (e.g. fewer humanity graduates, more scientists) Or should we aim to produce “competent out-of-field teachers”? Learning II?
3. How could the School of Ed facilitate better communication between colleagues teaching similar courses or themes?
4. Addressing subject matter gaps (I have faced a chronic gap in scientific literacy over 12 years): Format a ‘special topic’ course to fit small groups with inquiry topics of their choice?
