Behind the Numbers, a blog for CCPA, posted an article titled “Let’s Be Creative: Let’s Destroy the University”. The articles discuss how technological advancements such as the internet and in turn, online courses by leading professors and researchers, has changed universities for the past 20 years. However, institutions, organizations such as OECD, and magazines such as The Economist, are still behind this “revolution”. The article also discusses the issues with research grants and publications. This “funding or famine” predicament may ultimately lead to falsified results, the use of selective data, or less rigorous research.
