Moving from siloed to seamless for the modern-day learner: Interview

Nontraditional departments such as continuing education departments often operate separately from traditional educational faculties, but an interview with Frederick Wehrle (University of California, Berkeley) highlights the benefits that come with intentionally gravitating toward a seamless institution. Wehrle explains that department siloing happens for a variety of reasons, but from an operational perspective, “it is hugely inefficient to have different divisions and departments independently serving non-matriculated students.” He discusses the ongoing efforts at UCalifornia to make the institution behave as a cohesive unit and addresses obstacles such as working with team members who have a limited understanding of what the continuing ed department’s work entails.
