UT Offers Gobbledeegook Education Program

Here’s one for the Has To Be Seen To Be Believed file, or perhaps the Ugly manhandling of English Language file, or most especially, the Why Regular People Don’t Listen To Academics file.

The University of Texas is launching a… well, to be honest, I’m not sure. Some kind of MOOC. A newly tech-based instructional delivery system. Probably a version of Competency Based Education.  But Marni Baker Stein, Chief Innovation Officer of the University of Texas System’s Institute for Transformational Learning, is at Inside Higher Ed to plug the… whatever it is.

The entry is entitled “The Future Is Now.” Treasure that phrase, because it’s the last thing in the piece that will make plain sense (and was probably written by the IHE editor and not Stein). Can we figure it out?
