Today I received this email from a former student of mine. It read:
Just emailing to say a big thanks for this years IR module, it’s been super interesting, and I’m very glad to have taken it! Are there publications/general books/articles etc that you’d recommend to keep up with the field?
In a educational system that is turning more and more into a business. A system that seems only interested in finding ways to increase the influx of funding, I believe that emails like this are still one of the most rewarding sides of my profession.
