About Those Ambitious Aspirations, So We Have 45% Adjuncts?
But didn't OurLeader just say (yesterday's Daily):
Bruininks said students feel the impact of the top-three initiative in the sense that it's a "different approach for education."
"In nearly all of our fields, I think students benefit from learning from faculty members who are on the cutting edge of their fields," he said. "It makes the education we provide distinctive and very special."
Note: I am not being critical of adjuncts, having done time as a "non-tenure track" faculty member.
The criticism is directed at OurLeader who on one hand argues that a research oriented faculty will be better teachers.
But on the other hand, the reward for being a good researcher is minimization of teaching duties - the slack being picked up by adjuncts.
You can't have it both ways, Bob.
