This is the email I sent to Berkshire authors this morning, and they are coming up trumps – lots of ideas and examples coming, and I’d love to hear from you, too: I’m hoping Berkshire authors can help me with ideas and anecdotes for an article entitled “Building cross-border communities to energize learning, teaching, and innovation
