One response to “Taken-for-granted metaphors in HE and the messages they convey”

  1. James Harlan

    The discussion regarding these oft-granted metaphors has never been so timely. When I visit Education news section of various sites and peruse down the comments, I often see these metaphors used (and misused). They are either brought out of the article or from the commenter’s experience. Indeed, its use has shaped not only the way learning outcomes is perceived; it has the same effect in various aspects of education, too!

    Suffice it is to say, most of those who use it don’t know what it really is about and yet, are quick to assert and defend their position when challenged (hence, the very lengthy exchange in comment threads).
