Last month's hottest stories, plus a great way to get your message out -- Inside Higher Ed's Daily News Update e-mail. Get details below.
April's best-read article was Paul Fain's in-depth reporting on two new competency-based education programs that up the ante for a potential disruption to higher education. Ry Rivard's article about renewed criticism of anti-plagiarism software from the Conference on College Composition and Communication drew the most comments of any story on the site last month. According to the CCCC resolution, "plagiarism detection services can compromise academic integrity by potentially undermining students' agency as writers, treating all students as always already plagiarists, creating a hostile learning environment, shifting the responsibility of identifying and interpreting source misuse from teachers to technology, and compelling students to agree to licensing agreements that threaten their privacy and rights to their own intellectual property." Whew! Lots of comments for Scott Jaschik's coverage of a video that went viral on conservative websites last month -- the Fox headline: "USC Political Science Professor Tells Students Republicans Are ‘Stupid and Racist.' " The article notes some context that was missing elsewhere. (For more on professorial politics, check out our Book with Buzz below.)
