Poor Mr Bats, can’t keep up with my long hours of lesson preparation. This was another marathon for LSM1103 Biodiversity, a first year course in which we introduce some of the animal groups to the class. In this particular lecture, five phyla are discussed and Mr Bats slumped over the student's text book, Solomon et al. apparently in recognition of the futility of the task. In my time mollusca took two lectures.
Mr Bats did the same last year, on an opened book and the class got to see the 2008 photo too. Wasn't caught on the webcast as this all happens in the first few minutes when the last 10% of the class are streaming in.
I'd have expected these cats to do a better job of night vigils. The honours students this year appear to be wider awake in the dead of the night than these cats, hmph!
