First lecture of the year

Wednesday 12th September 2018, 9.55am (day 2,575)

HNAP lecture, 12/9/18

Notes on laptop? Check. Camera? Present, obviously. Bag of plums for distribution? Check. Students? Well, some of them. Even if they are members of uni staff on the ‘Humanities New Academics Programme’. Here we go through to Christmas, either way.

Chrissi’s workshop

Thursday 7th December 2017, 1.25pm (day 2,296)

Chrissi's workshop, 7/12/17

Chrissi came to teach us all about using board games in teaching — not that that is obvious from this shot, but what the hell, I still like it. It was an engaging session and I think this is captured here. And yes, the eagle-eyed may have spotted our Clare engaging in the back there.

Engaged…

DMIL class, 20/10/16

It’s nice to see I can still have a reasonably engaging effect on my students…. (with help today, I admit)…

Lecture theatre

Tuesday 27th September 2016, 10.50am (day 1,860)

F47 Sackville Street, 27/9/16

I’m sure this picture will simultaneously warm the hearts of traditionalists and chill those who believe in progress in educational technology, but the speaker here was not using the blackboard, I can assure you. Or, indeed, Blackboard. A second monochrome shot in two days but the white balance of the original was blown and this made it look a whole lot better (as is often the case).

Teaching online (late)

Tuesday 3rd March 2015, 8.15pm (day 1,286)

Online class, 3/3/15

Spent the whole day doing this stuff, without leaving the house, so you weren’t getting a photo that does any more for your lives than giving you a chance to inspect the accoutrements that surround my home workspace.

Etienne Wenger

Wednesday 30th April 2014, 12.25pm (day 979)

Etienne Wenger, 30/4/14

On average, you probably haven’t heard of this guy, but in my field he’s quite a big name. We are lucky to have him as a part-time academic at the University of Manchester. I’ve heard him talk before, he’s a very expressive speaker, so I knew it wouldn’t be too hard to catch him in some kind of animated pose. The ‘practice’ on the board behind it also makes the shot — if you know the work he does.
