Underwhelming Swinburne ceremony

An on-line graduation could have been much more

A learned reader sends  a link to the university’s ceremony for the Faculty of Health, Arts and Design and the Swinburne Research stream.

An experience to remember it isn’t.

It begins with the chancellor speaking at a graduation when the university’s leadership could assemble on-stage and in-person and then the names of  graduands are read out as they are scrolled down the screen for the better part of an hour. “There’s more compelling footage of ice melting” the LR laments.

There’s also a PDF of the programme, and an Instagram post, but that appears it.
