What’s Wrong With the Credit Hour? A New Report Offers Answers – The Ticker – The Chronicle of Higher Education

What’s Wrong With the Credit Hour? A New Report Offers Answers – The Ticker – The Chronicle of Higher Education.
I haven’t read the report yet, but the comments are illuminating.  There are very different notions of “time” out there.

Some folks are quite ready to accept “effort” (theirs) as what should be creditable, which is pretty close to the underlying philosophy of the credit hour (though actual credit-hour allocations often don’t represent the relative effort students may put in or be required to put in).  Of course, to respond to this report with remarks about effort misses the point.
