The academy lacks a culture of learning

“The core explanation is this: the academy lacks a serious culture of teaching and learning. ”

From an essay by Richard Keeling and Richard Hersh in Inside Higher Ed. No punches pulled, and hard to disagree with. Indeed the problem in what they say is that we know it already (puts me in mind of the politicians quote: “We all know what needs to be done. We just don’t know how to be re-elected when we’ve done it”.)
