UW Regents Approve Tenure Changes

The changes allow for tenured faculty layoffs when academic programs are discontinued, and creates a standard policy for post-tenure job reviews across the system. The review policy includes a process for remediation, and eventually, termination of underperforming professors. Board members adopted minor amendments to the new policy, disappointing faculty who had lobbied for changes like removing financial priorities as a reason for shuttering an academic program, more faculty control over program changes, and additional protections for laid-off colleagues. Faculty leaders have argued that what they see as reductions to tenure protections will put the UW System at a competitive disadvantage. Until 2015, tenure policies were written into Wisconsin state law. José Vásquez, who will finish his term on the board later this spring, disagreed.

The Advantages of a VR-Based College Education — Adventures in Consumer Technology. The Advantages of a VR-Based College Education What if we decouple the goal of getting diplomas from college experience altogether by using VR? What will be the social and economic implications of VR in higher education? Imagine a world where students spend $600 to $1500 for buying the most premium quality of VR tools and devices to replace the in-class learning with remote learning instead of spending thousands of dollars per year for getting physical seats in classes for a diploma.
