Senchyne replies to Kristof–Inside Higher Ed

Thoughtful piece by Jonathan Senchyne in IHE. The immediate context is the NYT piece by Nicholas Kristof last week on academics not participating in the public sphere sufficiently (a piece that’s already received a lot of push-back).

But the longer part of the article discusses a elitist (and very expensive) NYT conference on the virtual university and such developments as “thinkfluencers” and the marketization of “education.”

Just who does the New York Times turn to for higher ed expertise? (essay) | Inside Higher Ed.
