“Cultivating Respect for Homework”: an article by CYA Academic Director, Theoni Scourta, featured on Business Partners magazine
In the latest issue of Business Partners, the bimonthly magazine of the American-Hellenic Chamber of Commerce, thought leaders in education weigh into the homework debate.
Theoni Scourta, Vice President for Academic Affairs at College Year in Athens (CYA), discusses the undebatable and indisputable importance of homework in higher education, in her article “Cultivating Respect for Homework”.
She explains that the debate should be on how to better teach students instead, focusing on the type of assignments given to them. “A combination of assignments that promote autonomy and group work is best, and this exact combination is actually at the core of our institution’s learning philosophy”.
