I like the charge of being a "convener and synthesizer."  And "experimenter-in-chief."  What is disruptive is MIT is examining both residential and online and asking how can we do learning better. It does not put f2f before online or vice versa. The question they are asking is different. Nothing that they are looking at is radically new but their top emphasis asks different questions. Let's see how it plays out.  

 

"Mechanical engineering professor will shepherd efforts to integrate elements of online education into traditional MIT courses."

Message can be applied to higher ed #highered #disruptive  "Knowing something is probably an obsolete idea. You don’t actually need to know anything. … It’s the teacher’s job to point young minds toward the right kind of questions."

"...Mr. Shirky also offered some advice to people interested in experimenting with openness: “Do not put together an interdisciplinary team from 12 departments and give them a budget of a quarter of a million dollars, and a year and a half deadline. Find five people and ask them what can you do in a month—for free. I think the results will surprise you.”
