This summer, I had the rare opportunity to do some filing at the office. And I came across this, which made me want to laugh and cry at the same time:
As you can see, it’s a CD about “Student Progression and Transfer” or SPAT. Presumably this would be “spat” in the Fred Astaire sense. It was produced by the “Fund for the Development of Teaching & Learning”. Sadly, it’s typical of a number of things I’ve encountered in the world of UK Higher Education.
The current austerity measures, which have resulted in all our bins being taken away from our offices for example, are perhaps a good idea in some instances. Michty me, as they say in the Broons!
Thank you to everyone for such hugely supportive comments and thoughts for our family. Michael and I appreciate them enormously, and I’m sure they do the Dafter good as well!
