No, we are definitely not.  Reason: our students are strongly assigned
to departments and should (I should say must) take prescribed courses.
Thus they go through large pipeline, where every "element" (i.e. teacher)
knows about previous one.  They do not cry, because they prepared this

Personally, I would like to have looser barriers between departments and
allow students to select courses more freely.  Then your remark
would be right and we would definitely have to change the way we
teach them.
