State Senate Hearing on Higher Ed: Online Program, Budget Goals, and Accountability

The recent California State Senate hearing on higher education provided some news and many interesting discussions. Patrick Lenz announced that the UC will be holding all day meetings with senate faculty on online education April 13th and 25th. He also added that the UC did not think the move to online courses would save money in the near future. However, UCOP is looking to create more courses for the summer that would be available for cross campus enrollment in the Fall.

Nick Schweizer from the Department of Finance stated that the governor’s basic strategy is to increase funding for the UC system and hold the university accountable to certain outcomes, which have yet to be announced. When pressed for details, he discussed increased graduate rates and a shorter time to degree. He also added that online education could play a major role in reducing costs and increasing efficiencies. One possibility is to use a virtual community college to allow students to take all of their courses online before they transfer to a UC. A related strategy would be to make it easier for students to get credit for outside online courses by using the exam-for-credit program.

While access and affordability were the main themes, legislators had a hard time seeing how the issue of educational quality connected to the governor’s proposals. The real problem is that since there is no real agreement on how to measure and compare student learning and the effectiveness of teaching, everyone falls back on the countable measures of credits and degrees generated. This same problem is evident in President Obama’s new college scorecard, which defines “value” by the net cost, the average debt, the graduation rate, and the loan default rate.

  3. This article above suggests that the federal government may mandate the state's funding of higher education. This site helps me to write my papers on this theme. In the case of these cohorts, and others, is that just a guarantee of support to athletics and not academics?

  7. Making unsubstantiated claim as usual. Are you always a fool or you simply repeat some mistakes to amuse us? Who told you I am a Kenyan Writer? Your degree of madness is extremely high.

    Making unsubstantiated claim as usual

    What unsubstantiated claim? There have been numerous posters on this site claiming to be from Kenya (something the mods occasionally verified using IP information) and insisting that other writers must recognize their superiority, that Kenyans are the kings of the world and we should bow down before them, etc. I do not know whether you're from Kenya or somewhere else, but your tone is similar to that of these Kenyan writers, if toned down somewhat. The fact that you misinterpreted a fairly simple sentence is still more evidence of your lack of English fluency.

    Which sentence? You claim they score "passing grades" and yet you have no evidence. Is this not unsubstantiated claim? You are not my professor to question whether I "lack English Fluency". Also, have I ever indicated anywhere on this forum that I am the "King of the world"?

  27. There are so many young people who really would like to get their Higher Education diploma, but unfortunately due to many reasons they cannot afford it. Is there any solution? I doubt that there is one at this point. Would have been nice if more grants were at least available for talented kids: writers (http://custom-paper-writing.org), researchers, artists, etc. Or maybe good discounts for them. In any case, something that would allow them to study!
