Paul Clavier, the director of the philosophy department of the University of Lorraine, takes up a song by Georges Brassens. He claims the return of face-to-face classes at the university.
While a gradual and partial return will begin on January 4.
White hair, a guitar and a gray mustache, almost real. In his video published on December 16 on the Facebook page of the philosophy department of the University of Lorraine, director Paul Clavier almost looks like Georges Brassens.
He is at least the cover of one of his most famous songs “Chanson pour l’Auvergnat”, released in 1954.
A recovery to send a message to his students and demand the reopening of the university explains the academic: “I found that the students, with the work in videoconferencing, were quite affected by the lack of dialogue and I wanted to show all the compassion of the teaching staff who also suffers with the students.”
Paul Clavier denounces in this recovery a “pedagogy reduced to almost nothing“. According to him, if distance work can be useful for some students, it is not viable in the long term” rbeing in front of your screen 6 to 8 hours a day, it’s not a good way to build your intellect“.
Gradual return to university
A video that has had some success, it has been shared more than 600 times.
The Minister of Higher Education, Frédérique Vidal, announced that “point position“will be carried out at the beginning of January 2021. A resumption of tutorials for all first-year students from January 20, will be under consideration.
