The Decentralization of Education after a Crisis

  • Peer Evaluation is Inspiration. One of the best ways to learn quickly is to get a positive and critical feedback loop from your peers. Your peers are like teammates. You may be competing for the same position, but the greater good is in the accomplishment of the collective effort. There is more value in facilitating dialog in a course than the traditional siloed approach to lecturing at students and assigning work to be submitted in a closed-off, oneway manner. Students now have a more significant opportunity to teach others.
  • Expect the Unexpected. As a business leader, the routine expectation is that you present guidance for your direct reports. The hope is the same for students. Setting the right expectation for them is quantifying performance metrics. An unexpected event, like COVID-19, allows you to practice adaptability skills. Your resiliency through change will help overcome any pitfalls when moving in the direction of goals.
  • Keep It Simple Systems. Education software and technologies have a wide range. Social media platforms and streaming services offer educational content but are not exclusive to peer-to-peer learning. Making the mistake of using too many platforms can dilute your message. You can keep it simple by optimizing one learning platform and sticking with it.
