More from the UW Eau Claire student body presidential race

Posted in Uncategorized by scarsonmsm on April 17, 2008

Two more articles in the UW Eau Claire student newspaper. The newspaper endorses candidates supporting an OCW at Eau Claire, albeit with this somewhat cryptic concern:

There was one issue both tickets brought up that the editorial board found troubling, though. Both brought up the OpenCourseWare system the university is going to be installing soon, which may be good for students but bad for professors. The system, which puts course syllabi and materials online for students to view before signing up for classes, would force some professors with more difficult course loads to potentially dumb down their classes so as to better appeal to prospective students.

I’m not sure I’ve ever heard that particular concern argued before. The other article covers a debate.
