Philip Arnold – Week 7 Reflection

by on August 5, 2011

There were good discussions this week about our educational system – current problems, and potential strategies and solutions.  I really appreciated the fact that other classmates felt enough trust in the discussion to play devil’s advocate, and as a result, I feel like I was challenged to think in greater depth about my position and theirs.  I goes to show what can happen in an online community when a comfort level is established through constructive debate – I know that future discussions can go beyond maybe where they went previously.

Although I am critical and frustrated with our educational system’s resistance to change, I remain hopeful.  Today, our college signed an online articulation agreement with Missouri University to allow students to pursue advanced degrees without having to leave their communities, families, and jobs.  And, more articulations are planned in the state and across the country.  These are exciting times, and the opportunities and access to education will only continue to grow.

– Philip (keeping the faith)
