School’s out for the summer/ School’s out for ever? Yesterday I took the last exam I ever expect to take. In a sense, my life as a student is over and my life as a teacher is beginning.
Of course, the transition is not as clear as that – on the one hand I am still a PhD ‘student’ – but the supervisor/student relationship is very different to the student/teacher one. And on the other hand I have already been teaching this year at the “London College of Communication”:http://www.arts.ac.uk/253_257.htm (though I hope to do a lot more teaching next year there and at my own institution, the “LSE”:http://www.lse.ac.uk/collections/pressAndInformationOffice/aboutLSE/information.htm).
Still, I feel different now. And I look forward to the exciting challenges ahead!
