The way they teach now

Sydney U veterinary professor Jan Slapeta tweeted a pic of an empty lecture theatre Monday

“Shock! 9am lecture – no one! Where are they? My first lecture for this cohort, so hopefully not reflection on me. I was told to give the lecture anyway, because some might be watching it streamed. 50 min discussion with chairs. Is this what uni is now?“ he lamented,

Has been for a while, even pre pandemic– as Adrian Raftery famously reported, when none of his estate planning students at Deakin U turned up a lecture in 2017.
