Paris '71 Publishes Essay on Academically Adrift


David Paris '71

Professor of Government David Paris published an essay on the newly released book Academically Adrift on the blog Faculty Focus on March 14. Paris wrote in Holding Up a Mirror to Higher Education, “…no one has any particular incentive to put student learning front and center. … students prioritize obtaining credentials over learning and social life over academics, faculty view scholarship—as opposed to (rigorous) teaching—as a source of rewards and advancement, and institutions have no incentive to compete with regard to learning outcomes as opposed to status and amenities.”

 

Faculty Focus is a blog that, according to its website, “publishes articles on effective teaching strategies for the college classroom — both face-to-face and online.” Paris is Executive Director of the New Leadership Alliance for Student Learning and Accountability.
