Over the last evenings I have been playing with digital and mixed media art to reflect on all the challenges faced working in higher education at the moment.
In part these are responses to the irresponsible press articles demeaning online learning and teaching–it’s all just watching some videos after all, right?– dismissing the unbelievable amount of work, thought, and time that has been (and still is) devoted to preparing for the upcoming academic year. Seriously, shame on you. This type of reporting is frankly uninformed, unsubstantiated, and ignorant and only serves to contribute to the mental health crisis.
This is for you
If you are angry, annoyed, saddened by the nonsense drowning out all the commitment and hard work of the last months. Maybe these will cheer you up a little.
