Each new idea had its supporters and detractors and each in turn was replaced by an alternative or simply disappeared from view.

How might we approach new ideas and innovative practices in ways that ensure our students benefit?

Dealing with organizational hubris and humility - Jeffrey Braithwaite - 27 views
