via Insider Higher Ed: “What your Ph.D. Didn’t Cover”

Jen Wingard, a Rhet/Comp faculty member in English and currently one of the people running the Writing pedagogy course there, was kind enough to pass this Inside Higher Ed piece along to me.  Since we’re still developing our own certificate program at the CTE, I’m interested in others’ reactions to this trend: what are the benefits, what are the costs, of setting up a program like this to professionalize students in this manner?  My thought is that it would certainly raise the overall quality of CC teaching, if done right.  I also suspect that it would refocus the Ph. D. programs that were feeding their graduates into those jobs.  What do others think?
