COLUMBIA — MU's history department adopted a resolution last week that opposes the "imposition" of E-courses at MU, according to a letter from department Chair Russ Zguta.
According to the letter, the resolution identifies three main concerns:
- E-courses undermine faculty control of the curriculum.
- They drain financial resources from MU departments.
- They dilute the quality and integrity of education on campus.
The department adopted the resolution after a discussion during a March 8 faculty meeting, the letter stated. Zguta has sent the resolution to other departments in the College of Arts and Science to gauge interest in co-sponsoring it, the letter stated.
Departments have until March 18 to respond to the resolution, after which time the resolution will be forwarded to the MU E-learning Task Force and others in the administration, according to the letter.
