side by side: social media and higher education

Sarah “Intellagirl” Robbins  outlines some fundamental realities that not enough folks are paying attention to.  Robbins is correct that higher ed. is no longer the gatekeeper of knowledge. As people interested in higher education’s community engagement practices,  this is also a great reminder that the community at large also holds knowledge that will help to overcome the challenges it faces. The “experts” may not be where you think they are.

One thought on “side by side: social media and higher education
