Comments from the 2010 Forum

“Scott Walter hit an important point–it is important to graduate knowing what you do not know and to graduate with the drive to continue learning. We can not possibly cover and teach everything.
Teaching to the competencies can certainly limit innovation and creativity, they should be guidelines not measured outcomes.
If COA is to make sure that there is a quality course/education for the student then we should be careful of standards and competencies driven by professionals already practicing.
Service learning answers a lot of the questions.”
