Yet again I return home from my 'Twilight Session' a little over the jargon and in need of a stiff brandy.

Tonight's fashionable word (which was bandied about with gay abandon I might add) was 'engagement'. Well... !@#$ engagement I say! A student can be engaged in digging a hole in the ground or throwing stones through windows but doesn't mean they are learning anything. Let's see some rigor people! Let's see some real learning like when we were young!
