  • Atlassian’s big experiment with performance reviews – how "HR Best Practice'. Twice a year, people would review themselves and their peers via 360-degree reviews" suck. take a hint, HR. i rated a colleage using 360 once. bogus scientific accuracy. – (wikis HR assessment #bsu )
  • ´┐╝Conflicted: Faculty And Online Education, 2012 I. Elaine Allen and Jeff Seaman with Doug Lederman and Scott Jaschik ´┐╝ – Faculty are skeptical – they ought to be – and administrators are excited – they're paid to be. An ad-laden, administrator-focused knee-jerk measuring survey report that shows little news. Perhaps one interesting bit: We're still suspect of the learning outcomes that (seemingly) suggest online is valid. "Professors, over all, do not have a positive view of the learning outcomes for online education. Nearly two-thirds (66 percent) say they believe that the learning outcomes for an online course are inferior or somewhat inferior to those for a comparable face-to-face course. Most of the remaining faculty members report that the two have comparable outcomes. Fewer than 6 percent of all instructors consider online to be either superior or somewhat superior to face-to-face instruction." That is, an online learning outcome is not the same as a face to face learning outcome. Huzzah! That's always been the place where the DE advocates like to hide the difference. That and using ENTHUSIASM as a substitute for consideration. Which, in fact, this survey is based on: they measured fear vs excitement, rather than, say, concern vs mindless buy in.
