I got my University results back today.
I got a First (78.5% avg.) Degree. Which i’m really pleased about.
I’m less pleased about my University.
My biggest complaint is too few lecturers made any effort to discuss how the subject is changing, What are the major influences? What are the opportunities in the future? What do we need to learn now to be employable when we graduate?
And why would they? There aren’t any textbooks explaining the future. So this is where lecturers have to add value to the reading. This also leads into my second biggest complaint; using the same slides and readings every year. Many of the assignments were only slightly different from the previous year, and some module guides/lecture slides were dated as far back as 2001.
When you pay £12,000 in tuition fees, you simply expect more.
So now i’m taking the scary, and rather thrilling, self-employment route. Over the past two months i’ve found myself specialising in using new and old tools to build online communities for companies. It’s going to mean a change of direction of this blog. Thanks for reading.
