Most students ready to catch up during Innovative Learning Week
As week 4 draws to a close, most students have already decided that Innovative Learning Week is the time when they’ll catch up on week 1’s readings. With a week off to catch-up on five weeks’ worth of lecture readings and tutorial work, ‘reading around the subject’ has long been written off.
Some students stuck to the doing lecture readings prior to lectures for a total of one week. However they, too, are now exhausted by the university’s intense workload. Expectations on students to check both their emails and Learn, and read ahead of lectures has caused campus-wide fatigue. This has caused students to drink during the day, nap and make outrageous statements like, ‘Hillary would be good for America’.
Flipside asked students if they were planning to participate in the university’s celebration of creative learning. 24% of respondents said ‘No’, instead planning to going abroad to experience sunlight for the first time since the semester began. 78% did not answer as they were too perplexed by the revelation that it was not, in fact, a reading week.
This news comes as it has also been reported that gym attendance has returned to pre-January levels. Many students have long forgotten about their ‘new year, new me’ motto and healthy lifestyle.
