A fairly accurate description of my state of mind over the past couple of months and an explanation as to why I haven’t been engaging with this blog.
I work in a place which seems to increasingly resemble less a higher education institution and more a mass production facility fixated on targets, administration and national league tables. As with any other competitive business, staff numbers are being cut back drastically and workloads are being increased. Those of us lucky enough to still have a job seem to be working around the clock in order to fulfill the tasks which we deem important for our students’ education whilst also satisfying the box-ticking demands of our ‘management team’.
