STUDENTS at Malaga University Law School have 40 days left to collect 5,000 selfies taken with crocodiles to pass a class in procedural law course.
The strange project thought up by Alberto Postigo, lawyer and teacher, was set for third and fourth year students of his Internet and Social Media Seminary to provide a fun way to learn about the impact and legal implications of social impact.
Postigo aimed to make his class more interesting and motivate students by skipping boring theory cases and give them a project to make them discover just how social media works and possible legal implications.
Students have until January 21 to present their photo collection, which must be selfies taken with real or model crocodiles. Grades will depend on the amount each student collects, with a minimum of 5,000 required to pass.
The teacher has promised to give the last class wearing a crocodile disguise if the project becomes a ‘trending topic’ or any of the students manage to collect over half a million photos.
Postigo said that far from criticising his rather eccentric teaching methods, many colleagues have congratulated him and asked him how he manages to keep his students so eager to go to classes.
