Higher Education’s Problem: Seven Red Lines, All Perpendicular, Some Green, Some Transparent

This video is a spot-on dramatization of many, many meetings I’ve participated in during my time in higher education. Despite (or perhaps because) being peopled by very smart souls, the tolerance for senseless gibberish makes it amazing we manage to keep going. It’s well done (and funny) enough to be worth the 7 minutes).

This British video is titled “The Expert” and it is based on a short story, Совещание, (“The Meeting“) that appeared on the blog Слон в колесе (Elephant in the wheel) by Alexei Berezin in 2011.

I'm currently an Academic Program Director at MinervaProject.com. I've been a professor at University of Toronto, University of Southern California, and Mills College teaching things like human centered design, computational thinking, modeling for policy sciences, and social theory. I'm driven by the desire to figure out how to teach twice as many twice as well twice as easily.
