When The Money Runs Out

This paper asks a difficult question, and comes up with ... an answer. I don't think it is the answer, but it it an answer to a question which many of us are going to have to address soon.

Pull quote:
"Our students pay high fees, have high workloads and want face-to-face feedback from experienced tutors. There is a subtle problem here. Student-centred approaches involving self-regulation and active learning may promote deep learning and high generalisation of outcomes, but skills acquisition seems to require at least some degree of authoritative feedback. The question is how to provide the latter as efficiently as possible without diverting learners from the former."
