Quality IT Education Strikes Out
May/June 2005 (vol. 7 no. 3)
pp. 16-17
Sorel Reisman, Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching (Merlot)
Dropping IT enrollments are leading to a concomitant drop in institutional funding for instructors of computer science and IT. This in turn is leading universities to hire increasing numbers of part-time or adjunct faculty members, many of whom lack the broad education necessary to teach students the basic principles of computer science. At the same time, university curricula are under increased pressure to cover particular software packages rather than broad principles. Thus, the next crop of university-trained IT graduates in the US will know even less about the basics than their predecessors.
