The point of it all? 11 April 2008

Posted by Dr Moose in Ponderings, Recommendations.

While I was seeking to get into postgrad education I got into a habit of regularly buying the Times Higher Educational Supplement. I fondly remember it as a restrained newspaper, interesting, informative and occasionally incomprehensible.

I’ve started getting it again – but it’s not the same. It is no longer the restrained Times Higher, instead it has re-invented itself as THE, a glossy magazine. I don’t think I’m especially reactionary, but I find it hard to see the point. The pictures don’t appear to actually add any value to the text and the best I can say is that it’s easier to read over lunch.

I have to admit the cover article on how lecturers cope with student despair is a worthwhile read though – and curiously lacking in any mention of the role and place of Chaplaincies within staff and student support. Another sign of the times, perhaps?
