Since September we have had a new head tutor for our course.
She has been using the old tutors notes and presentations and passing them off as her own.
She has also been giving lessons that consist of watching youtube videos.
Today we were given a powerpoint that was directly copied from Wiki pages.
The class feels like this isn't value for money, and more importantly: a form of plagiarism.
Is this normal teacher behaviour for HND and above?
What can we do about it?

The using old notes is pretty normal for the first year that someone teaches a module, bit odd to claim them as her own though. Rest of it is definitely dodgy and worth complaining about.

I agree with the above. Re-use of lecture notes/presentations is completely normal when taking over from someone else. Copy/paste of material from Wikipedia should be taken to your Student Union for advice. Bear in mind that you will have to prove that this is what was done.
