I’d like to pose this as a discussion prompt today, since I’m spending every waking hour this week leading an intensive Georgetown seminar for new students in the Learning, Design, and Technology program. I’ll share some thoughts later on as I pry loose the hours, but wanted to give you all a chance to explore in comments.
