This article thematically analyzes graffiti found in the lecture theatres of the Education, Humanities and Law Faculty at Flinders University, South Australia. Through close examination, it is concluded that lecture theatre graffiti presents a previously unrecognized but valuable discourse concerning students’ perceptions of their educational experiences. This paper interpreted these left messages and considered how they might inform the practice of lecturers.

Peter Walker

Lecturer, Faculty of Education, Humanities and Law, School of Education, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia

Prior to becoming a Special Education lecturer at Flinders University, I spent over twenty years in the field, as a classroom teacher, an assistant principal, and then as a principal of a Special School in North Sydney. I have worked extensively in both New South Wales and South Australia. My interests include inclusion, challenging behaviours and the use of Augmentative and Alternate Technologies to facilitate communication. My interest is also occasionally piqued by the analysis of unconventional educational texts. I am currently studying an Educational Doctorate at Flinders University.
