I had great ideas for today's post. All of them ruined. You can blame Student X, who has wasted one hour of my working day (yep! I write and post on the blog at work, I think that is fair!!) and confused me to a point where I cannot put together two rational thoughts. It got so surreal that I ended up laughing my head off in front of Student X. Who kind of decided that he deserved it, after being such a fool. To sum up the whole story, Student X, who is enrolled in my course but who takes options from other departments, came to ask me for a unit handbook, let's say for unit A. I didn't have it so I asked the proper channel. Received it by email, printed the handbook and gave to student X. Who then read a bit of the handbook and realised he had to submit an assignment by the next week. Student X was not aware of this deadline. He thought it was strange. This led us to investigate a bit more his enrolment to unit A. And lo and behold, the system said he was not enrolled to that unit but to another unit, let's call it unit B, taking place on the same place and time...but in different weeks. There was a point when Student X was not even sure he had attended either of those two units. A student who doesn't know the units he has attended??? Trying to contact course co-ordinators was almost impossible, being a very busy time of the year. I had to figure out what had happened. With phone calls here and other bits of information there, I got to the conclusion Student X had indeed attended unit B. Seems simple, eh? Well, I told you, this is a SUMMARY of a surreal hour (one hour!!!) during which only bits and pieces and little clues led me, step by step, to the happy ending of the story. I sure don't want to see Student X again for a long time.


Hoy tenia grandes ideas para el post. Todas ellas, arruinadas. Le podeis dar la culpa al Estudiante X, que me ha hecho perder una hora de mi jornada laboral (si! escribo mis posts desde el trabajo, me parece justo!) y me ha confundido hasta el punto de que ahora no soy capaz de escribir nada racional. La situacion llego a ser tan surreal que acabe riendo a la cara del estudiante. Quien probablemente penso que se lo merecia. Por burro. En resumen : el Estudiante X,matriculado a mi curso pero tomando asignaturas de otros cursos como opciones, vino a verme para pedirme el librito de explicaciones de la asignatura A. Yo no lo tenia, asi que hice unas llamadas, envie unos emails y recibi el librito. Lo imprimi y se lo di al Estudiante X, quien se lo leyo por encima. Para su horror, el librito le informaba de que habia que entregar un trabajo la semana que viene. El Estudiante X afirmo que nunca habia oido hablar de ese trabajo. Todo en en librito le era desconocido. Investigue la matriculacion a la asignatura. Y...sorpresa! el estudiante NO estaba matriculado a la asignatura A, sino a la B. Las clases de la asignatura B tenian lugar en el mismo lugar y horas que la asignatura A...pero en diferentes semanas. Me imagine lo peor... mas investigaciones. Llego a un punto en que el Estudiante X ya no sabia si habia ido a clases de la asignatura A, la B o quiza la C o la D? Contactar con profesores, imposible esta semana, andamos todos muy liados. O lo solucionaba yo, o no lo solucionaba nadie. Con llamadas, preguntas y mucha imaginacion, llegue a la conclusion que el Estudiante X habia ido a las clases de la asignatura B, a la que estaba originalmente matriculado. Parece sencillo, eh? Parece, pero no lo es. Ya os dije que esto es un RESUMEN de la hora surrealista con el Estudiante X. Al que espero NO volver a ver en mucho tiempo!
