"At Christmas I no more desire a rose Than wish a snow in May's new-fangled mirth; But like of each thing that in season grows."

QuoteProf Danielle George, head of blended learning, confirmed in a clip of the interview shared with the Guardian that this would mean large lectures would stay online, since they are "didactic and non-interactive". However, she said "there isn't that much across the university" which is not interactive.
QuoteIf it's moving the interactive stuff online as a ruse to increase class sizes without building any estate, that's another.
QuoteSo yeah, I don't see the benefit, I don't see how we make it happen and I don't see how we make it work starting in September. Happy times.
Quote from: Alberon on July 14, 2021, 07:18:09 PMOur uni is planning to keep social distancing and mask rules the same through the summer, but we're gearing up to have students back in the classroom without social distancing in the autumn. The only restriction on filling every classroom is ventilation. In short, if there aren't enough windows, the amount of students who can be in there is reduced.God knows how we're going to make sure the lecturers keep all the windows open in the winter though.

For the record, I've benefitted tremendously from remote study this year, in terms of marks and being able to concentrate. Checking this thread all year has been a periodic horror show, but my uni has been pretty supportive and forgiving over this period.

I hope the notable CABers of that parish were there to make things uncomfortable for him wherever possible.
QuoteTrying to teach "complex molecular biology techniques" was much harder over Zoom, he told the conference at Northumbria University
