I would like to retain Cecile Chagnaud as a lecturer in the Film BA (Hons) course in Lasalle, College of the Arts.
It has been brought to attention that Cecile Chagnaud, the Editing lecturer for the Film BA (Hons) course in Lasalle, College of the Arts, has not had her contract renewed for the entire of the following Academic Year of 2018/2019. This means that she will not be around to teach Semester 2, from 7 Jan 2019-28 Apr 2020.
This will bring about an inevitable disruption in the Semester's scheduling and planning of student consultations. All of us have been consulting Cecile since last year and are familiar with her teaching methods. She has been an incredible mentor that has supported students in addition to her classes by providing countless advice on every film she has been overseeing. This includes her inclusion in the preparations for previous graduation shows (also known as Lasalle's Avant Premiere). This has encouraged and aided the students of the Film cohort immensely.
Furthermore, this affects all of the students from Year 1 to Year 3. Most importantly, as a Year 3 senior, this will also affect our Thesis Film projects as we need to re-familiarize ourselves and our work with a new lecturer. The intention to abruptly change lecturers, if confirmed by Lasalle's Management, does not further improve the welfare of the students in the Film (BA) Hons course.
We implore you to retain our Editing lecturer, Cecile Chagnaud, so we may continue our education smoothly for the following year of 2019/2020.
