[Côte d'Ivoire] Universités publiques : Le risque d’une redescente aux enfers

[Côte d'Ivoire] Universités publiques : Le risque d’une redescente aux enfers | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it
La réouverture des universités publiques de Côte d’Ivoire le 03 septembre dernier a suscité beaucoup de joie et d’espoirs chez les étudiants et leurs parents. Eux, qui ont été presque contraint à ranger stylos et cahiers pour les premiers et qui ont été peinés par l’oisiveté de leur progéniture pour les seconds, depuis la décision du président Alassane Ouattara de fermer les universités pour cause de réhabilitation en Avril 2011. Cependant, la récente grève des enseignants du supérieur, les coups de sifflets stridents d’étudiants en colère et réunis sur l’esplanade de la présidence de l’université Félix Houphouët-Boigny de Cocody la semaine dernière, sont venus semer le doute dans les esprits.

NIH Offers to Help Universities Improve Training, Boost Diversity

Biomedical Careers - Although some social scientists and biomedical researchers have complained that U.S. universities are training far more graduate students and postdocs than will ever find jobs in academic research, and others argue that any potential oversupply will find jobs in industry or other sectors, almost everyone agrees: The current training system takes too long and isn't designed to prepare young biomedical scientists for nonacademic jobs. So last week, the National Institutes of Health announced a plan to prepare scientists for a range of careers, move students through their Ph.D.s faster, and bolster the pay of postdocs. Officials say the changes are not aimed at reducing or even stabilizing the number of graduates but are intended to improve the training experience. (...)

Government 'Exams' for Italian Scientists Trigger Outcry

ROME—An unprecedented government effort to shore up the quality of Italian science by reviewing the work of individual scientists and institutions has triggered a firestorm of protest. Critics say the government review, coordinated by the National Agency for the Evaluation of Universities and Research Institutes (ANVUR) at the Ministry of Education, University and Research is using flawed criteria and will do little to reward the best Italian scientists.

Non-tenure-track faculty members don't get enough mentoring or professional development.
Collectif PAPERA's insight:

Three-quarters of US academic institutions polled in a survey reported increasing their numbers of full-time non-tenure-track — or adjunct — faculty members in the past decade. More than one-third have “significantly increased” hiring of part-time adjuncts in the same period, finds Values, Practices and Faculty Hiring Decisions of Academic Leaders, a study that will be published in early 2013 in the journal Liberal Education.
