A set of podcasts is 21st-century equivalent of a textbook, not a teacher

An intelligent essay from Pamela Hieronymi, professor of philosophy at UCLA, discussing the impact of technology on education:

A set of podcasts is the 21st-century equivalent of a textbook, not the 21st-century equivalent of a teacher 다운로드. Every age has its autodidacts, gifted people able to teach themselves with only their books. Woe unto us if we require all citizens to manifest that ability Smartstart download.

Brilliantly put.

Educators are coaches, personal trainers in intellectual fitness. The value we add to the media extravaganza is like the value the trainer adds to the gym or the coach adds to the equipment outlook 2013.

Just as coaching requires individual attention, education, at its core, requires one mind engaging with another, in real time: listening, understanding, correcting, modeling, suggesting, prodding, denying, affirming, and critiquing thoughts and their expression 다운로드.

 

Well worth reading – Don’t confuse technology with college teaching

Who makes more, college professors or coaches?

I bet you’re thinking this is a no-brainer and the coaches win by far. Not so fast, the medical departments at colleges rake in money for patient care and consulting 엑스박스 게임 다운로드.

Here is a breakdown for the UC system in California which includes Berkeley, UCLA, and San Francisco with a combined 100+ Nobel Laureates:

2010 Pay

  1. Coach – $2.4 million – Jeff Tedford (Berekeley)
  2. Coach – $2.1 million – Ben Howland (UCLA)
  3. Prof 티칭 필링 다운로드. – $2.0 million – Ronald Busuttil (UCLA)
  4. Coach – $1.9 million – Mike Montgomery (Berkeley)
  5. Prof. – $1.8 million – Khalil Tabsh (UCLA)
  6. Prof ch340 드라이버 다운로드. – $1.5 million – Anthony Azakie (UCSF)
  7. Prof. – $1.5 million – Philip Leboit (UCSF)
  8. Prof. – $1.5 million – Timothy McCalmont (UCSF)
  9. Prof 다운로드. – $1.4 million – Richard Shemin  (UCLA)
  10. Coach – $1.2 million – Rick Neuheisel (UCLA)

The coaches hold four of the ten spots 도라에몽 극장판 달 탐사기 다운로드. The disparity in pay between the two groups isn’t all that great either. Average of the top 10 has the professors earning $1.6 million and the coaches earning $1.9 million 다운로드.

If you keep going, the next fifteen are all on the healthcare side with twelve professors and three health executives. Of the top 100 they take up 84 spots, with only fourteen non-healthcare salaries 아이작 애프터버스 세이브파일 다운로드.

#3 - Ronald Busuttil, Transplant Surgeon

It’s also worth noting that the next coaches on the list are Norm Chow (UCLA) at #95, and Joanne Boyle (Berkeley) at #119 fckeditor.

I have to admit the numbers are pretty shocking. The common understanding is that professors make little money, while doctors make good money. Combine the two and it’s a gold mine 시네마 4d 무료 다운로드.

One that doesn’t pull money from the schools themselves. Like the coaches they are largely paid with the money they pull in. In the world of college academics this is called an “auxiliary program” (thanks Norman), and the opposite is normally true zeromq. These programs (sports, healthcare) funnel money, prestige, and students to the schools.

A final note, these salaries are determined by combining each persons base pay with their incentives and bonuses. For the coaches this means winning, playoffs, and championships. For the health professors it means seeing patients and receiving awards for their research.

Take out this extra pay and not one in the top 10 earns above $317,000 in base pay. Many of those lower on the list have a set base pay of $500,000 and $800,000.

Interesting, to say the least, and I hope I informed your opinion of college salaries.
