Another work related rant

So I went to this 2 day course which bafflingly calls itself a 'pedagogy course' last course last week. Funny, I wonder what exactly is pedagogic about having to give x number of exercises is y amount of time all in the name of ensuring A.

One of the highlights of said course was a 40 minute discussion on whether students should be penalized for writing a title for their summary. For me, it was like whatever man... we want to test theit summarising skill so let their summary be the judging point, but if you wanna punish 'em, OK, why not, sure, whatever you like... Oh it was totally maddening being in there...

Maybe they should be punished since they didn't follow the title of the course... irony...

You dont know the first thing about lengthy discussions about nonsense until you come to Kapit & sit in a supposedly simple & straightforward meeting with our beloved visionary... Chai.

Dont complain.
Feel my pain.
Staring at that face as the mouth speaks elevates all pain.
