The print is of an original engraving by William Hogarth’s "Scholars at a Lecture," described here as:

A delightful commentary upon the institutions of universities and of "higher learning."  Here a tedious professor (believed to be William Fisher, the Registrar of Oxford) is delivering one of his lectures entitled, "Datur Vacuum" — ‘A vacuum is granted’.  Surrounding him are his students who exhibit a myriad of responses to the lecture.  Indifference, boredom, scorn, amazement, skepticism, incredulity and drowsiness are all portrayed.  Every reaction, in fact, is here except genuine interest.
