Davidson starts this deep dive into higher education and where it should go by looking back at the last time higher education revolutionized itself--in second half of the late 1800s. Carolyn Cook deftly narrates this audiobook in a tone that captures Davidson's love of recent innovations in higher education--such as community colleges, MOOCs, and student-centered learning--and her frustration with what is seemingly unchanged--large lecture classes, multiple-choice testing, and pointless assignments. Cook knows where to dip her voice to hint at a joke or bemused point by Davidson and where to shift to a sincere tone to express Davidson's concern about what's being discussed. Throughout, Cook balances Davidson's conversational yet critical approach to discussing higher education. L.E. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2017]
