Plashing Vole – y traethodydd
Students really like teaching via Facebook – and it can do everything Wolf can do!
I've never seen any teaching done via Facebook - what do they mean?I actually am Facebook friends with a lecturer, mainly because she's awesome. I make sure though that any contact with her on there is away from uni matters though. Uni is uni, Facebook is the shit we do to procrastinate away from uni. Merging the two wouldn't be great.
I tend to agree: Facebook is qualitatively different. For me, personal and professional lives shouldn't merge - some colleagues are very careful, some are more relaxed. I'll have to go along to the session to see what they're on about. I don't quite see what this particular medium has to offer pedagogically.
There is a joke going around amongst us students it goes like thisSTUDENT 1"Hey, did you know that Oxford Uni are on University Challenge tonight?"STUDENT 2"Really?"STUDENT 1"Yes, and the dark place uni aka ************* is on facebook"
Related to this: why is it that Oxford and Cambridge get to have all their colleges on? It means that every episode features the toffs. Time for a single Oxford team and a single Cambridge team like everybody else.
