"Students hit by 14-day university lecturers strike"

One of the pictures accompanying this article didn't load properly.

Luckily, there's a description to help you imagine it:

Given the infrequency of lectures and of students' attendance at them, how many will notice?

I have a friend who ran the commercial training department of a uni selling its services into industry. He was given timetables of all full time and part time lecturers and was given the authority to require them to give lectures on his courses. Average student contact time for these people was about 14 hours per week, so there was plenty of hours left.

He had endless problems getting them to do this or any other work. Often they would complain that the time he wanted - and they were contractually obliged to deliver - interfered with their second or third jobs, despite the fact that they were full time employees of the Uni.

I have absolutely zero sympathy for any of these wasters.

Lecturers? I thought that these days, they were all "purveyors of agitprop to the feeble-minded and gullible".
