Quotes from this episode
“We try to start from the student’s perspective”
“Universities are great at research, except upon themselves.”
“Are you free to learn what you want or are you put on some rails that you have to follow?”
“Collective stupidity; the web can be an amplifier.”
“Opening the ivory tower can be successful, but we need to know how to do it.”
