I was asked this week what I saw myself doing when all this is finished. The answer is: I haven’t a clue. If I went back into teaching, it would be media studies and/or IT, definitely not English. I did think I might like to become a lecturer, but I’m not so sure now. I can see what life is like on that side of the desk, and I’m not sure it’s for me.
I would love to be involved in the creation of a A-Level course in Web Science, which I can see is going to suffer the same scepticism as Media Studies did (and still does, sadly) if it isn’t careful.
So long as it’s an indoor job, no heavy lifting, I think it’ll be ok.
