The University Unbound: Transforming Higher Education 1 V. Prado Valentina, A thought-provoking article.  Just thinking aloud (and so, not so synthesized or necessary cogent at this point), would it be helpful in thinking about the dilemmas of making good educations more accessible and more relevant to changing times, to think about it in wicked and tame terms?  For example, would/should the process be different if we're imparting tame information (i.e., facts) vs. when we're discussing (or synthesizing for purposes of discussing) wicked problems?  And would/should the process of imparting tame information be different from when we're discussing wicked problems?  Does this help us think better about the issue?  So a 101 level course in any subject might be tame information presented in a tame/elegant solution way (let's presume that this information is so basic that we've worked out how to deliver this information in the most effective way possible -- an assumption that should be thought about and potentially challenged).  But a 500 level course might really start to nibble (or if it currently doesn't, it should) at the wicked problem edges -- maybe.  I'm not completely convinced of any of this but I'm just throwing it out there for discussion/thought.  I'd be eager to hear from you and others to the extent that this is an interesting topic to you.   H1 H2 H3 H4 H5 H6

Reference material suggestion 0 B. Vigon Cynthia, Thanks for posting these for use by the team.  I wonder if the group thinks it would be useful, for any of our topical contributions, to highlight and discuss points in these references before they get used in the papers.  I particularly think this might be helpful for the Tainter  et al. book chapter but depending on how the topical teams are planning to take up these ideas, such an exercise might be useful for any ideas the groups may take up.
