I wrote this poem a long while back that speaks to the essence of what I'm driving toward here
The secret to education is
That there are none
And knowledge is best amplified
We don’t improve
My thinking is the inverse of this. Not only will we benefit by opening up the operational infrastructure of our institutions, but the whole of the industry will benefit. What's to say that we all don't win if we share and collaborate in an a macro way - across the industry, or for that matter, even with in the same university systems (for example, the CSU has 13 campuses, but we don't necessarily collaborate on our strategic and operational approaches to how we do what we do).
Next step is to publish it and open it up to the world.
