Taking a Leap of Faith

David Wiley, BC Campus, Dec 24, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

David Wiley has always impressed me with his courage. I commented when this came out, but want to make sure I don't overlook mentioning it in OLDaily: "I’ve made the incredibly hard decision to leave my full-time, tenured faculty position at BYU," he writes. "For the foreseeable future, I’m going to focus my professional time and energy on providing on-the-ground support for OER adoptions. I’m so grateful to be able to continue this work with Kim and the rest of the Lumen Learning team." It's a decision that entails considerable risk, but which offers a rich learning experience as its reward.
