Joke’s on me?

Who would attend this? This really shouldn’t be this hard.

Whether we wish them to or not, students often rely on Wikipedia as a source of information. This session will discuss ways of teaching students to use critical judgment when reading Wikipedia articles.

Date: Tuesday, April 14
Time: 2:00pm – 3:00pm
Place: Busch Campus Center, room 120AB, BC

This workshop qualifies for the 21st Century Professor Certificate Program.

Is this college now? Instructors working towards “21st Century Professor” Certificates? Students who don’t know a credible source from a Pop Tart?  Professors who need to attend an hour long seminar to tell their conniving ratlings that the Internet is not a scholarly source?

I wish I went through college in the 1950s.  Back then, you got a D if you wrote some crappy paper with crappy sources.  Now, we have seminars to teach professors how to hold hands and sing Kumbaya with any student who gets an A-.

Here’s your seminar: don’t cite stupid stuff.  Now get off my lawn.
