Also: A reporter at George Washington University’s paper has been interviewing her about her MOOC. She’ll link to that piece as well.

  1. Jack/OH Says:

    A non-prof, I’ve received something of an education the past decade in the frustrations of scholars and teachers. I’ll sum up those frustrations as a generalized feeling that faculty are regarded as the cheap furniture in a hotel run by and for people who have little interest in the scholarly enterprise. I don’t know how accurate my characterization is, or how much of a contribution it makes to depression and suicide among faculty.

  2. Margaret Soltan Says:

    Jack: I think that’s largely true of only certain categories of faculty. People who bring large grants in, for instance, are appreciated and rewarded. Humanities scholars (like the person featured in the IHE article) may on some campuses feel less appreciated.
