[RECOMMENDED] Why The Degree is Dying (and being replaced by something better) by Isaac Morehouse – Founder & CEO of Praxis

If I did not know better, I could have sworn the author of this piece spent some time reading my mind before writing THIS excellent piece.

Now, don’t get it twisted: The idea being advocated for adoption here is not that classroom based learning is no longer useful.

Instead, as the author notes in the excerpt below, the manner in which classroom learning is conventionally managed (as Sir Ken Robinson famously noted in his TEDx presentation) tends to kill CREATIVITY or “damages learners”)!

Why The Degree is Dying (and being replaced by something better) by Isaac Morehouse – Founder & CEO of Praxis

“There’s a value to classroom learning, but it’s currently endured unhappily by most students (and many professors) as a means to get the paper credential. This unholy marriage of credential and classroom has done damage to both. Learning environments without the (supposedly) magic job ticket are of vastly superior quality. Whether free or paid, online or in person, podcasts, courses, videos, and lectures of all kinds freely chosen by interested learners maintain quality that mandated credentialed classes can’t touch.

This last point smashes a pernicious myth perpetrated by some academics. That skipping college is anti-intellectual. Far from it. Self-driven learning has never fared better, and the conflation of desperation for a job ticket with thirst for knowledge is absurd.”
