  • “We must rethink ourselves.”
  • there is still a certain hierarchy that needs to be in place or else personal interest will become conflated with the interests of grading (we are still vested with a certain institutional authority, whether or not this is a pedagogical approach)

  • I share your worry about technology becoming a roadblock instead of an open door in teaching.
