Official: Powerpoint bad for brains

Dean Watson

Lecturers beware!

So its official is it? Powerpoint makes your brain go to sleep... 5 years of engineering tought me that, its nice to get the Official backup to all those secret student theories.

All we need is another 8 or so studies to indeed confirm the results and then we can look forward to seeing a re-occurance of last years Lecturer strikes. In 2006 it was about pay, in 20XX it will be about actually having to teach your subject instead of reading off of a set of powerpoint slides you created when you were still a phd student trying to break into lecturing and still gave half a toss.

Ahh, good times, good times.
