You may go into this further down, but organizational psychology has a lot to offer on these topics as well, especially when considering curiosity and learning as collaborative endeavors towards leadership vs. management.

Agree with Katina here. How can those with privilege (tenured faculty, for example) offer to start the action and thereby encourage those for whom it is a real risk to join them?

Is there time to do a poll/survey/crowd-sourced questioning? Whenever I talk to students, grad and undergrad, for example, about changing the university, I learn SO much about their experiences and ideas, including micro-steps towards more productive engagement, care, building learning communities.

Much agree with Janine here. Plus, how does care intersect with education, arguably the “deliverable” of a university or college? How do we care, how can we practice care within the context of teaching and learning – all of us?

Thanks, Katina. I feel much the same way. I’m going to hope that the revision process opens up some of those more lofty thoughts in ways that feel worth sharing!

I’ve been pondering this, and definitely need to think this through. The US system is increasingly characterized by its extremes — the protections of tenure for a shrinking minority, and the gig economy for everyone else. There are a lot of degrees in-between, of course, but they’re far less visible, and those “protections of tenure” are in many places under serious attack. I’d like to know more about the kinds of general job protections that exist in the UK system, and how those operate with the specter of potential redundancy in the air…

Provocative but 100% true. The primary freedom provided by tenure is the freedom to say no, which causes lots of less-than-desirable tasks to roll downhill. (See below.)
