What counts when you cost online learning?

http://www.tonybates.ca/wp-content/uploads/asssociates.jpgBy . Much of the media coverage has focused on the finding that respondents to the survey on which this report is based were by and large of the opinion that distance education costs more than classroom teaching. But you need to read the report more carefully to understand why respondents responded in this way. It all comes down to how you cost distance education or online learning. In particular, you need to understand the context of the report. More...

Garbage Data on Sexual Assaults

Résultat de recherche d'images pour By Alex Usher. One of the tools the Government of Ontario wishes to use in this fight is more public disclosure about sexual assault.  I imagine they have been influenced with how the US federal government collects and publishes statistics on campus crime, including statistics on sexual assaults.

Notes for the NDP Leadership Race

Résultat de recherche d'images pour By Alex Usher. As contestants start to jump into the federal NDP leadership race, it’s only a matter of time before someone starts promising free tuition to all across the land.  Now, I’m not going to rehash why free tuition is both regressive and undesirable (though if you really want to take a gander through the archives on free tuition, have a look here).  But I do think I can do some public service by talking about federalism and higher education, or rather: what the feds can and cannot do in this sphere.

Two Studies to Ponder

Résultat de recherche d'images pour By Alex Usher. Much of the rhetoric around universities’ superiority over other educational providers is that their teachers are also at the forefront of research (which is true if you ignore sessionals, but you’d need a biblically-sized mote in your eye to miss them).  But on the other hand, research and teaching present (to some extent at least) rival claims on an academic’s time, so surely if more people “specialized” in either teaching or research, you’d get better productivity overall, right.

Résultat de recherche d'images pour By Alex Usher. Canada did quite well out of a couple of university rankings which have come out in the last month or so: the Times Higher education’s “Most International Universities” ranking, and the QS “Best Student Cities” ranking.  But there’s actually less to this success than meets the eye. More...

Four Mega-Trends in International Higher Education – Catch-up is Hard

Résultat de recherche d'images pour By Alex Usher. One of the perpetual alleged threats to cross-border education is that universities in the developing world might someday rival those in the west. Once that happens, the theory goes, students won’t need to go abroad and the whole international student thing goes up in smoke. It’s not an implausible theory, but it underplays how difficult catching up actually is. More...
