Is our students learning?

This blog entry was posted by someone who teaches journalism to college students:

Red America blog

So the Washington Post has created a conservative blog called Red America. This reminds me a bit of the New York Times creating a conservative beat. It's an admission they don't cover conservative issues already. Why aren't they created a blog called Blue America?

I believe the word she uses is "lecturer." She wouldn't be responsible for actual learning.

To be fair, it's the word that the UW uses. It means she isn't faculty, as she doesn't have a Ph.D. It means that she is academic staff, as she has a master's degree.

But lots of UWM lecturers are doing lots of the teaching, since there are so few faculty at UWM -- only about 700 faculty for 28,000 students. (UW-Madison, with about half again as many students, has three times as many faculty.)
