As you may know, I have been a passionate practitioner and advocate of the application of Lean principles and practices to teaching for more than 20 years. On 19 October 2020 I gave a presentation titled “Eliminating Waste in Teaching: The Brilliant Life and Work of Dr. Lillian Gilbreth.” Click on the image to view or download the presentation file.
Here is a video of my presentation.
Please share these with university faculty and administrators. It will help them understand the pressing need to improve teaching and how Lean management can reverse the “corporatization” of higher education and make it a much better place for students, faculty, and staff. Demand for that change must come from faculty, as well as students and staff.
