Last week several members of the Creativity Consortium came up with a
new concept of education degrees with expiry dates...say 5 years for
the sake of argument.

I'd like to hear your feedback on the concept... if possible using PMI,
six Hats or the McLuhan tetrad.


1) What do you like about it ? What are the benefits (P of PMI or Yellow hat)

2) What do you dislike about it ? (M of PMI, or Black Hat)

3) What do you find interesting about the idea ? (I of PMI)

4) How do you feel about the idea of Degrees with expiry dates ? (Red Hat)

5) Using it as a stepping stone, where does the idea of Degrees with
expiry dates get you thinking ? (Green Hat)

Social Consequences-Degrees with expiry dates
6) What does it enhance or intensify ? (McLuhan tetrad)

7) What or who does it render obsolete or displace ? (McLuhan tetrad)

8) What does it retrieve that was previuosly obsolesced ? (McLuhan tetrad)

9) What does it flip into or produce when pressed to the extreme ?
(McLuhan tetrad)

Looking forward to your comments
