What’s new on Academic Matters
Academic Matters – OCUFA’s flagship journal of higher education – has added exciting new web content over the past few months. New exclusives include commentary and analysis of program prioritization, predatory academic publishing, and a problematic new report on faculty workloads.
New content includes:
- The University of Windsor’s Vice-President and Provost Leo Groarke on why program prioritization is a divisive process that doesn’t work for faculty or administrators.
- UOIT’s Gary Genosko on the disturbing rise of predatory academic publishing, where ethics are loose and the product suspect.
- A piercing critique of new research put out by HEQCO on academic workloads by Windsor’s James Winter.
- The University of Alberta’s Edmund Aunger on how the Fraser Institute’s work on minority-language education is little more than political propaganda.
Access to Academic Matters is always free online. Check back often for new blogs and web exclusives, and look out for our May issue on your campus.
