Teacher Reprimanded for Assigning Book « Diana Senechal. Genomsnitt, MN—A high school English teacher faces public scolding and possible dismissal for assigning a book to her students, Superintendent Harry Billiard announced on Friday.

Teacher Reprimanded for Assigning Book « Diana Senechal

“Let this be a warning to all,” he said. “To assign a book is impositional. The kids aren’t there yet. Plus, how do you know they’ll like the book?” Billiard explained that the specific book (To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf) wasn’t the issue; the problem lay in assigning any book at all. According to anonymous sources, the teacher had assumed presumptuously that a literature course should feature works of literature. “Students should read them, yes, but that doesn’t mean teachers should assign them,” explained Billiard. “What software?” “There isn’t software for modernism yet, that’s right,” Billiard responded. Advanced faculty wrangling techniques - Research Centered. Getting a group of faculty members together to accomplish something has often been compared to herding cats.

Advanced faculty wrangling techniques - Research Centered

I disagree. When I want to get my cats all into one room to do something at the same time, all I have to do is stand in my kitchen, open a can of Friskies, and yell “Num nums!” Cats, neatly lined up. Completely unlike faculty. Not so with faculty. The lack of response is especially confusing because the professor cats are the ones that suggested the num nums in the first place.

Hamburger: The Motion Picture - Opening Credits. Hamburger The Motion Picture (1986) Forget MOOCs. By Benjamin Ginsberg As colleges begin using massive open online courses (MOOC) to reduce faculty costs, a Johns Hopkins University professor has announced plans for MOOA (massive open online administrations).

Forget MOOCs

Dr. Benjamin Ginsberg, author of The Fall of the Faculty, says that many colleges and universities face the same administrative issues every day. By having one experienced group of administrators make decisions for hundreds of campuses simultaneously, MOOA would help address these problems expeditiously and economically. Since MOOA would allow colleges to dispense with most of their own administrators, it would generate substantial cost savings in higher education. "Studies show that about 30 percent of the cost increases in higher education over the past twenty-five years have been the result of administrative growth," Ginsberg noted.

Ginsberg pointed to the realm of strategic planning. Ginsberg has named his MOOA "Administeria," and plans to begin operations in early 2014. Fäden? was für Fäden ?
