Having emerged from a meeting where someone used the phrase "brigading together all the interventions", I was in deep crisis. Then I opened an email with the summary of the feedback from the students on the free elective I teach on Anarchism. Joy! These are a few samples (they haven't had their results yet, just in case you were wondering) .
• This module is so much fun it shouldn’t be legal
• Ryley is a legend!!!
• Tutor is proper good, always happy and enthusiastic
Glowing with pride, I slipped the comments into an email to a former student who is just about to graduate. She replied,
"last point, needs slight alteration:
tutor is proper good, always happy and enthusiastic, as long as the lecture is after midday and he's had at least one bottle of red wine the night before."
