If you have wondered how a lecturer’s desk looks like, here is an example.
This is the official amount of space allocated per person. However, if the neighbouring seat is not occupied, my files and other material would grow legs and spread themselves out. Below is a shot taken from another angle.
After years of staying in the same job, you tend to start bringing personal equipments into the workplace. One day, you will find that you could set-up an instant office at home should you resign from the job. My home office now is equiped with a laptop, a coloured printer, colour-enhanced quality A4 paper, personal files of all sizes, a rainbow of whyteboard markers, staplers, punch-holer…etc. What I’m lacking now is broadband internet access because problems with the wireless connection. Probably need to get one of those all-in-one machines which photostates, scans and fax.
Here’s a look at what’s in my cupboard…files (one per subject taught), files and more files. I have started clearing my 6 years worth of work today. Will post some after clearing pictures once I get them into boxes.
