Stereotypes of OU lecturers again

Visible to anyone in the world

My wife sent me the following sentence from an email she received:

"My dad was on Open University BBC late night TV when I was a kid as the classic bearded wool jumper wearing maths type lecturer!"

Stereotypes of OU lecturers.

Visible to anyone in the world

Some time ago I posted a Private Eye cartoon that featured a stereotype of OU lecturers.  I have discovered that there is at least one more cartoon that makes use of this view.

Thanks to Mike McNulty for sharing this.

A cartoon about stereotypes and the OU

Visible to anyone in the world

I saw this cartoon  in the twitter feed of Fernando Rosell (@RossellAguilar).  I think it is interesting in showing how stereotypes can exist for all sorts of groups.  This is fairly harmless but, of course, stereotypes can often be damaging.
