My take on the theme day is not very original and imaginative, but the same cannot be said of the two men whose feet are the focus of this photo. Both are educational stalwarts in the true sense of the word; between them they have decades of teaching experience. They defy the modern obsession with formative assessment; to them, the educational experience is an essential aspect of acquiring life experience. Their passion and commitment to their respective fields and students are legendary. To me, they represent all that is good and honourable about tertiary education. Both may be regarded as eccentric, simply because they do not conform to what others consider to be the normal mould. So what is normal anyway? Normality is a myth.
