Lovely post. I have been thinking of this as a matter of "agency" where we want the students to become agents of their own learning. Faculty are not dis-interested however - they are also agents and must have the freedom to create the course the way they believe - will best work to give agency to their students.

Everybody needs flexible tools (which to me means free and open) and feedback (which to me means formative assessment and analytics) to create a cycle of improvement - both in the student who practices to get better and the faculty who practice to teach better.
