So, I've mostly selected my modules... and I've found myself in one class with just 3 people, including myself.
Basically, Franz is the lecturer... and his course used to be compulsory. Now, it's not. So, due to a mix up in timetable slots, people went into his class, realised it was his and poured back out again, leaving 6 people in the first class. Today it was 3.
I could see the disappointment in his face... and it just struck me, it's not the first time it's happened to him.
A good few years back, he used to run a formal specification class, which also used to be mandatory... that or someone else ran it. Once people realised that it was him, and that it was optional, he was left with one or two people. That class was cancelled that year.
The problem is, it's not that he's a bad lecturer, although the fact that his voice doesn't really carry in lecture theatres doesn't help, but he taught an incredibly dry subject in 3rd year, so people don't want a repeat of that.
Now, he doesn't seem so bad, and I just feel like he's getting a bad break as a result.
I wonder if the module will even happen next year...
