CFA President Harriet Murav will speak at the University YMCA at noon, Friday, October 14.
Her talk is titled “Verticalization and Unionization: What's Better for Education?”
Professor Murav explores “the national trend in university administrative practices, which rely on vertical models of assessment and outcomes, numerical evaluations, and other policies that fail to take into account the educational significance of face to face dialogue among students and professors, professors and their colleagues, and students with students.”
Unionization of the faculty offers the possibility of sounder ways of assessing teaching and learning in higher education, she argues.
This talk is part of the Friday Forum at the YMCA. Free and open to the public.
