What if Higher Ed was like this...

A Classroom Leaves the Syllabus to the Students -

A few Lehigh University
students turn out prosthetic hands on a 3-D printer. Yards away,
another group studies the breeding habits of endangered fish darting
around wading pools, and yet another pieces together a film about a
Polish poet. Most of the students here are pursuing their own projects —
about 30 in all — and finding their own way, with little faculty input
and with nothing more at stake than testing their own ambition, skills
and curiosity.
