  • What the . . .

    Speaking about one exam paper, Walter Cairns has tarnished the reputation of every faculty in MMU.
    Instead of bringing the issue up at the time and/or with the relevant people, he has chosen four years later to have his soapbox and 15 minutes of fame; simultaneously dragging down the reputation of his employer and extinguishing job opportunities for the very students he employed to help. What will graduate employers think? Whatever the subject or faculty, he has made opportunities in an ever shrinking job market all the more unattainable. Irresponsible and childish.
    If he feels his students are lazy perhaps he should reflect on his teaching methods. I hear nothing but bad reports from Cairns' students - he does not apply relevant topics when teaching and his criticisms unneccesary and unconstructive; they disperse themselves into groups taught by lecturers they feel to be more competent in the area (which might explain poor attendance to his classes). I find the standards at the Law School to be very high and external reports reflect this. I cannot vouch for other areas of study and, quite frankly, neither should Walter Cairns. The over generalisation that all students are lazy is offensive and inappropriate: he of course is free to voice his opinions on the Business School but has no place to apply that assumption across the board. Appropriate action should have been taken at the relevant level; this is unprofessional, the repercussions will be felt by all MMU students.

I would even go so far as to say he has a reputation.
