U of M offering credits for how to shoot a goose from the sky and prepare a meal from it. This is definitely a death-knell for academic studies which are more endangered than ever before in schools and universities.
Likewise, the rise of gamification–the very thing some educators in the 2000s predicted would dumb down education. Reminds me of the old 1972 joke about American universities offering courses in basket-weaving.
No, education in schools and universities today is very lost, dumbed-down, and ersatz.
