More Smarter Writing
OK, I can’t help linking to the Courier Mail (hack, spit) on this piece: Uni rocked by marking fiasco.
A UNIVERSITY graduate student abandoned the institution in frustration after a marking fiasco during which a lecturer told him to produce “more smarter writing”.
Former Queensland University of Technology Master of Business Marketing student Rohan Duggan, 38, said his nine-month ordeal included seven meetings and hundreds of pages of correspondence, some farcical.
In response to further queries, Ms Luck sent Mr Duggan a short e-mail which, because her “s” key was not functioning, read as: “I knew you would be di appointed, o what I have done i taken the middle ground. I am uppo ed to take the econd mark, but I did not want to kill you that much. I do hope that you have learned from thi . Not the point of a king for explanation, but that we a lecturer are not totally illy!! Academic writing i difficult. I hope all our comment can be helpful in the future. Edwina.”
I shall leave any possible conclusions or thematic responses to the comments.
