Online and Underpaid?

Paul Fain, Inside Higher Ed, Apr 16, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It may be depicted as a phenomenon unique to online learning, but it is worth keeping in mind that pay rates for adjuncts have been poor and getting poorer for many years now. University professors need to think about what a world looks like where their work has become a commodity. Perhaps now is the time to express more sympathy with piece-workers and agricultural laborers. "Effective February 7, 2012, Argosy University Online will transition to one adjunct rate for undergraduate courses of $1,600 and one rate for graduate courses of $1,800."
