“What poor education I have received has been gained in the University of Life.”
Have you wondered what’s happening at the other end, when you see those black, name-labelled screens in a Zoom or Teams virtual gathering? Online meetings are a great way to keep things moving, but my confidence in their effectiveness received a jolt last week when, at a seminar with our local member of parliament, an undergraduate said that the majority of screens were blacked throughout the lectures he attended, and questions were very rarely raised at the end of the sessions.
We’ve now had nearly a year of virtual interaction, and we’re starting to see where it works and where it doesn’t work. Higher education is the vital bridge between school and business and, if it’s not working there, we need to take urgent action.
So please READ ON .. as this week, adding to the clamour for vaccination priority, we put the case that university lecturers and students should be included.

The main set of proposals are as follows:
