UW-Madison’s Clifton Conrad was among the range of experts recently interviewed by The Capital Times newspaper for a report headlined, “Critics howl in response to Ron Johnson’s call to replace college instructors with videos.” The Cap Times article begins: “Sen. Ron Johnson’s call to replace college classroom instructors with videos sounds like a corporate refrain that celebrates efficiency in education at the cost of effectiveness," said Conrad, a Vilas Distinguished Achievement Professor and a faculty member in the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis. He also is the faculty director of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).
