Recently I had the pleasure of observing a team based learning (TBL) session at the newly established Lee Kong Chian (LKC) School of Medicine, a joint initiative between Imperial College London and Nanyang Technological University. As a doctor having trained via problem based learning (PBL) I was able to appreciate the stark difference between the two forms of instruction.
I sincerely hope that J.K. Rowling never stops writing and I am hugely excited about the publication of The Silkworm. Having immortalised her as the greatest writer to have ever lived, the press is unfortunately now looking for a wholly unfair excuse to tear her down.

Students are known for their bad eating habits; baked beans have become a beacon for the university experience. It's not surprising really - we don't have nine to five schedules, or lunch breaks, or regular wages... We only have ourselves to decide that cereal for the third time in a day is a bad decision, instead of a detox. Which makes it dangerously easy for people to fall through the gaps.

The doors of an office are constantly traffic-jammed with a rotation of students dying to make a good impression.
Last night after I got in from work I made my dinner, spoke to my flatmates, watched a BBC iPlayer and went to bed. Tonight I'll get in from work, make my dinner, speak to my flatmates, watch BBC iPlayer and go to bed. Tomorrow I'll more than likely get in from work, make my dinner, speak to my flatmates, watch BBC iPlayer, and then (shock horror) go to bed.
