What I've come around to is the idea that individual visions are far more helpful to teachers than crowd-sourced material.
Crowd-sourced material is:
- hard to adapt to new contexts
- difficult to organize
Individual visions, on the other hand, are:
- more easily understood and adapted
- easy to organize in a coherent way
One of my long-term goals is to put together a Virtual Filing Cabinet 2.0, that is more complete and filled out for every unit that I teach. I've started pulling that stuff together this year, and whenever I have time (which is never) I put together a new post. I'll be posting there a lot more over the next week or so, though.
