I have worked in K-12 for the past 14 year of my life as an educator, coach, and instructional technologist and recently switched to higher education as an instructional technologist. The change has been great and refreshing in many ways, but what strikes me as an obvious and important problem is that there is very little to know understanding of how one system works vs the other. Imagine if we could get more collaboration between K-12 and Higher and help to focus on education in both spaces. If we could somehow tap into using more Higher Ed faculty as guest experts in K-12 and help Higher Ed faculty catch up with current educational practices from K-12, imagine how great education could be!
What are all of your thoughts on this?
