The Walrus - - LETTERS -

My ar­ti­cle (“Pass, Fail,” April) makes some prob­lem­atic claims that were over­looked in the edit­ing process. On re­flec­tion, the cri­tique of Meds as schol­ars is too nar­row — my con­cern is not with one par­tic­u­lar de­gree but with the fact that the uni­ver­sity is fill­ing up with many types of un­qual­i­fied in­struc­tors. As well, my crit­i­cism of the Uni­ver­sity of Toronto vice-pres­i­dent’s re­marks on The ­Sun­day Re­port about “just-in-time” learn­ing fails to in­di­cate how ques­tion­able her ap­pro­pri­a­tion of such business-speak is for in­sti­tu­tions of higher learn­ing. These mat­ters are ad­dressed in the on­lin­ev­er­sion.
