More educational unspeak

This latest instalment of Malvolianism has to rest on hearsay; I wasn’t at the meet-the-nomenklatura session involved, for which I am profoundly thankful. Having been exhorted to make further and greater efficiencies in our teaching practice, a colleague asked how this was to be achieved given the University’s policy of replacing our big teaching rooms with a larger number of smaller rooms — an arrangement, one might naïvely think, which whatever its other merits does nothing for efficiency. The response, apparently:

You shouldn’t be thinking in terms of classes, but of co-creation events with students on their journey.

If anyone has the first idea what this means, or in what sense it was supposed to be an answer to the question, please write it on a postcard and send it to somebody who can cope with this tosh.
