Honors College will pay $12K for one “Virtual Faculty in Residence” online course

Current UO Faculty are not eligible to apply, presumably because that would mess with UO’s monopsony wage discrimination scheme. InsideHigherEd has the job ad here, some snippets:

    This is weird, and it is part of a trend of weird things coming from Johnson Hall and their in administration. But it must be said that the faculty has been coming up with lots of weird stuff on their own the last year and a half. This new thing will actually fit in pretty well.
