Lecturer completes week five lecture without making joke about Innovative Learning Week

A lecturer for the 3rd year English Literature ‘Performance’ course caused shock this week by completing his week five lecture without referring to next week – Innovative Learning Week – as “Innovative Skiing Week”, “Innovative Skiving Week”, “Half Term” or a “Mega Doss”.

At the end of the lecture, lecturer Greg Walker simply shut his book, turned off his projector and said “see you in two weeks” to the pupils, before leaving the room.

According to several students in the lecture, the audience remained glued to their seats and waited several minutes in silence, expecting that the non-materialization of an Innovative Learning Week-based joke was a well-layered satirical meta-performance, intended to convey to the students that ‘performance’ as a premise is merely a social construct.

Speaking to Flipside about his decision not to make an Innovative Learning Week-based joke, Walker said: “We don’t really acknowledge Innovative Learning Week in the English Literature Deptartment.

“This is mainly because with zero contact hours, Innovative Learning Week actually only has one fewer contact hour than students receive in a normal week, and drawing attention to this would probably cause outrage.”

Giving a statement on the matter, a EUSA Spokesperson said: “A joke about Innovative Learning Week would be funny, which could arguably be called banter, which is a sub-category of lad banter, and we have an anti lad banter and harassment policy. What we’re saying is that Innovative Learning Week is harassment. I think. Let me check I have the party line right there.”
