I’ve collected quite a number of my blog posts on higher education into a single volume. It can be purchased through Amazon.com either as a paperback or for Kindle. Get if from CUNY Academic Works or it can be downloaded from Academia.edu. It is free in both cases, and free to distribute.
Why get this book?
It brings together the discussion threads that have dominated my thoughts since I started my full-time academic career in 2004. People who attach higher education, like David Horowitz, are responded to. The work relating to higher education of Paulo Freire, B. F. Skinner and Fred Keller are discussed in some detail. And questions like the value and place of tenure are considered. Ultimately, this is a book about teaching, about the importance of presence, of face-to-face interaction between instructor and student.
