三個月沒薪水 教授下海招生

三個月沒薪水 教授下海招生 | Research and Education | Scoop.it

天下雜誌 – 2012年10月2日

 

受少子化衝擊,未來20年內,台灣預估將有64所大學被迫關閉。為求生存,許多大學無不出盡奇招,從校長到教授,開始扮起招生業務員。

 

南華大學副教授賴丞坡,回顧8年前從產業界投身教育的決定,「悔不當初」。之前,他從事保險業務員,認為學界環境單純,又可以專心教育下一代,很有意義。沒想到,幾年後,他仍像保險業務員,拿著傳單跑遍中南部高中。在吵鬧的課堂上,講述自己的學校有多好;跟高中導師鞠躬拜託,希望幫忙跟學生美言幾句;還要面對部份高中私下要求的「暗盤交易」。

 

為了生存,從上而下,大學砸錢給高中獎學金,希望高中協助招生;高中老師則利用開補習班教國中生,來增加高中招生率;國中也如法炮製,拉攏小學。「教育軸心已經歪了,」南華大學副教授陳寶媛觀察,面臨105年少子化「淹水線」,中後段班學校攬客招生,「教師業務員化」已經不稀奇。

 

從大學校長到教授,都必須笑臉討好高中。9月中,前教育部長、現任宜蘭佛光大學校長楊朝祥,趕在高中開學,親自到台北市內湖的文德女中送文具等小禮物。他說這是「睦鄰」,但兩個「鄰居」,相隔55公里。「教學、研究都比不上招生重要,」開南大學副教授張世儫說,他曾在一個暑假,跑遍北北基、桃竹苗。

 

「立法院曾預估會關閉64所大學,」賴鼎銘說,即使挺過105風暴,也還有117年第二波少子化,1/3的大學會受到衝擊,先關系所、再併校,1萬多名教師面臨失業。」

Impact factor: researchers should define the metrics that matter to them

Impact factor: researchers should define the metrics that matter to them | Research and Education | Scoop.it
The impact factor assumes that the most cited articles are the most influential, but influence is only one aspect of importance, say Victor Henning and William Gunn

 

One of the challenges faced by research funders – both public and private – is how to maximise the amount of work being done on important problems, without institutionalising any particular dogma which may suppress novel ideas. The most common arrangement is to fund good researchers but refrain from being overly prescriptive about outcomes, and, in turn, the way to identify good researchers has been to look at the publications that follow the research they fund.

 

In 1955, Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information (now part of Thomson Reuters), introduced a means for identifying influential journals according to the number of times work appearing in them was cited. This process results in a number called the impact factor (IF), and it's build on the assumption that those whose works have been the most influential will be the most cited.

 

However, as anyone who's compared the Twitter following of, say, pop singer Rihanna to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson knows, influence is only one dimension of importance. While useful for many (pre-digital) years, the IF system, not unlike some celebrities, is not aging gracefully. Not only has it been widely misapplied, it has also had some unintended side effects.
