re: Disruptive Leadership: Bowdoin College CIO Mitch Davis
Bowdoin's President Barry Mills said the Davis was "probably both right and wrong" about MOOCs being overhyped. They actually are talking about the right way for the college to engage in the phenomenon, but they want to do it thoughtfully.
I enjoyed taking the time to do a profile where I talked to more of the
people around him, rather than just the man himself, but the side effect
was I wound up with more material than I could fit into the article.
Better too much than too little.
One of the interesting things about Mitch Davis is that he is willing to play devil's advocate for the sake of getting a conversation going. The fact that he stakes out a definite position (and asks you to prove him wrong, if you can) does not mean that he has stopped thinking about different possible answers.
