On the Edge: Corinthian Colleges Inc. to Close

On the Edge: Corinthian Colleges Inc. to Close | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
On a ‘Knife Edge’

Pressure to hold education companies accountable seems likely to continue. Mr. Mitchell, who is the department’s top higher-education official, signaled as much in his post on Sunday. What Corinthian students experienced "is unacceptable," he wrote, and department officials "look forward to working with Congress in an effort to improve accountability and transparency in the career-college industry."

Kevin Kinser, an associate professor at the State University of New York at Albany who studies for-profit colleges, said Corinthian’s precipitous fall from where the company was a few years ago "shows the knife edge that for-profit higher education is on."

For-profit colleges "need a supportive regulatory environment to thrive," Mr. Kinser wrote in an email to The Chronicle. "When that is gone, they don’t seem to have a lot of residual support to sustain their activities."
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Before you borrow money to finance your education do the research. Don't get cut by corporate for-profit schools that help you max out your loans while over promising on job placements. 


Do the research.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, April 30, 2:16 AM

One of Corinthian College's campuses in Honolulu, Heald College, recently closed, putting approximately 16,000 business students out of class.  Kevin Kinser's warning is clear:  "Corinthian's precipitous fall from where the company was a few years ago shows the knife edge that for-profit higher education is on."  Students should be advised to avoid such institutions and opt for state-supported colleges in their communities.  Accountability and transparency are sorely lacking in for-profit ventures such as Corinthian College.  Aloha, Russ.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, April 26, 6:18 PM

'In the infographic, Blended and Online Assessment Taxonomy, we have organized types of activities that suit various levels of assessments (2001) starting with remember, understand, and apply in the first row. The second row of our infographic includes higher levels of active learning including analyze, evaluate, and create. Engaging curriculum whether face-to-face, blended, or online push student performances to these levels of learning; however, these assessments are less conducive to automated feedback systems as rubrics typically require intelligent judgment. The appropriate level of learning for any assessment should be determined by the learning objective(s).' - This is worthy of your time and reflection.

Georgia Heffernan's curator insight, April 26, 7:43 PM

To enable our students to become assessment literate, teachers need to align their assessment feedback practices with the purpose of the learning. This info graphic provides an easy to use guide based on Bloom's taxonomy of developmental learning - a good reminder to be deliberate!
