How to Fight the High Cost of Curricular Glut
Bugeja, Michael
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n21 pA33 Feb 2008
Curriculum management is at the source of issues consuming academics, including high tuition, low adjunct pay, shared governance, graduate education, academic calendars, and budgetary models. The issue has the most impact at Ph.D.-granting public universities, but any institution can benefit from analyzing the source of poorly managed pedagogy, for which both faculty and administration share in the blame and figure in the solution. In this article, the author discusses potential pitfalls of and solutions of curricular glut, and some hypotheses concerning the issue.
