Cambridge students want online tuition to be retained

Posted: 4th January 2023

Cambridge University is facing a backlash for scrapping recorded lectures. The university started filming lectures during the pandemic. Students were told last summer to expect lectures to continue to be recorded this academic year as a “transitional measure” alongside in-person lectures. However, the Faculty of Human, Social and Political Sciences said it was stopping lecture recordings. Now, more than 200 undergraduates have signed a letter to faculty professors demanding the return of recorded lectures. They argue that the removal of lecture recordings to “force” students to attend lectures “reflects a paternalistic view of students in which they are not afforded the agency to make decisions about their own learning”.
