It seems to me that if we can cultivate the habits of teaching and learning in such an environment, we will be well on our way to "adapting our teaching and learning practices to meet the needs of today's learners." I would insist, here, however, that faculty too should be included under the heading "today's learners."
On his reflections of the 2010 Horizon Report, Dr. Chris Long offers some interesting thoughts that I think are worth considering. The quote I pulled out above seems to nail something that many of should be well aware of — that we are all learners. It is one of the things we need to consider when we talk about the "new" in "new literacies."
