If you thought universities couldn’t get any worse, think again. Lecturers in the Leeds Trinity journalism department have been warned not to write in ALL CAPS so that they don’t scare their students.
How insane is this? Do we have to treat students like children?
ARE THEY THAT SCARED OF LECTURERS EMPHASISING SOMETHING IN THEIR WRITING?
Professors aren’t meant to be friends. They’re meant to be strict, authoritative, and educational. This is how the dynamic works. Lecturers lecture, students study. If that means feeling a little intimidated from time to time, then so be it!
