My daughter scribbles on my lecture notes. Which lie scattered around the house. This was her latest. She has a point. And any academic lamenting poor attendance and engagement in their lectures should consider it one of the biggest reasons why. We are just boring. And fixing that problem is entirely our responsibility. Not theirs.
‘Blah Blah Blah’ | Armin van Buuren | 2018
“All we ever hear from you is blah blah blah
So, all we ever do is go ja ja ja
And we don’t even care about what they say ’cause it’s
Ja ja ja ja
Blah blah blah blah”
‘Another brick in the wall’ | Pink Floyd | 1979
“We don’t need no education
We don’t need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
All in all it’s just another brick in the wall.
All in all you’re just another brick in the wall”
