Ethics of Academia (10) - Jesse Stommel

Is grading unethical? Coercive and competitive? Should we replace grading with something else? In this podcast I chat to Jesse Stommel, one of the foremost proponents of 'ungrading'. Jesse is a faculty member of the writing program at the University of Denver and is the founder of the Hybrid Pedagogy journal. We talk about the problem with traditional grading systems, the idea of ungrading, and how to create communities of respect in the classroom.

  1. One more small point. If this is an ethics question for academia, it is, foremost, an ethics question for society, as a whole, isn't it?
