Here’s a look at what a lecturer’s time-table is sometimes like.
The craziest time-table ever! This was the norm 7 or 8 years back. We somehow survived by being young… I guess. Its also due to the close bond among lecturers at that time. We can’t wait to get back to the staffroom to catch-up with each other and to share lunch over gossips and rants.
A more acceptable time-table nowadays. Though teaching quality has improved, enthusiasm has decreased. Not young anymore…I guess. Passion for the hotel industry is still there, however, not the same can be said for the academic situation, full of obstacles from every direction.
My current time-table, which is also my last. The coloured and non-coloured is to differentiate the different programmes having different starting and ending dates. There’s no break for lecturers teaching more than one programme as other programme will still be on even if the other is having break. Imagine having to invigilate and mark papers as well as still teaching. One just have to organise oneself better.
