PSYC2530 Child Psychology

Professor: Dr Tomohiro Inoue

Monotone tone and reads from slides. Lectures are not mandatory so you can skip those. However, he's still helpful when you have questions about the lecture materials.

In the Group report, you need to code the interview data but this process wasn't taught until the last tutorial. Furthermore, the tutorial only explained very briefly. You need to research on your own to know what exactly you need to do

Professor: Dr. Ivy Xingya XU

The professor directly reads PPT slide, but can explain complicated concepts well. The lecture slides are enough for the mid-term quiz but the textbook is helpful for understanding the concepts better. The professor and TAs are helpful with the group project and gives detailed advice.

PSYC2050 Psychological Testing

Shared by Anonymous

18 hours ago

Professor: Dr. Ivy Xingya XU

The professor's teaching is alright. She reads from the lecture slides so it doesn’t make a difference if you attend lectures or not. She welcomes questions from students and answers them in detail. However, her tips for the exam may be misleading. Although there are "required readings", you don't actually need to read them.

GENA2112 The Characteristics of Western Culture

Shared by Anonymous

21 hours ago

Professor: Dr. Frederick Hok Ming CHEUNG

Professor is friendly and enthusiastic about teaching, he often plays songs and videos related to the lecture. Also, after the Mid-term exam, he'll give back the papers and explain things you need to improve on. However, he sometimes struggles to finish lectures on time. The Powerpoint itself is a bit simplistic as he wants you to attend the lectures to understand it better.

Professor: Dr Anna Tsui

Anna is a very nice lecturer who remembers most of the students in the class. Lectures are quite interesting as she always uses real-life business cases and online games to illustrate the management concepts. She also shares a lot of her experience working as an HR specialist. Highly recommended unless you want to skip lectures (which is almost impossible in Anna’s class).

PSYC1004 Introduction to Quantitative Methods in Psychology

Shared by dashinthemash

2 days ago

Professor: Cao Hong Jian

If given the chance, a house plant would teach better than him. He speaks too softly, doesn't adjust his mic, says at the start of the course that "you have to work hard to get a good grade" but doesn't fucking explain anything adequately and just skims over important concepts. He spends like 40 minutes talking crap about his research and 20 actually about class content. I had to self-learn everything with Crash Course and Khan Academy. He seems nice but his concerning lack of teaching skills (he said that he's been teaching for over 10 years in Beijing which is very concerning, because if that's the case, how did his students survive???) really put the final nail to the coffin. Working hard brings you nowhere. It took me 20 hours to complete an assignment of four questions because he explained naut. Zilch. Nada.

lecture notes are just copied from textbook (and is poorly copied, sometimes will miss the steps or even result in example/proof), better directly read textbook instead. Professor is nice, but he said NO PASTPAPERS WERE PROVIDED IN PREVIOUS YEARS(provided 2020 final this year tho, but the final this year is mostly different from that and the questions are hard).

The professor answers students' questions quickly, thoughtfully and comprehensively. Plus, he posts all students' questions onto the Blackboard so other students can refer to it. In terms of the course content though, it is very math-heavy but the math is useless for future PSYC courses; only the concepts is useful. Lectures and tutorials can skip

PSYC3430 Psychology of Language

Shared by Anonymous

2024-02-08

Professor: Tomohiro Inoue

Monotone but explains different concepts clearly. Although the course has some foundational knowledge from PSYC2350, he explains them clearly to students who haven't taken/completed it yet. The textbook may help you understand better but the format is very annoying to read. The assessment of tutorial participation is a bit troublesome, as it requires you to ask questions in every presentation. Lecture not mandatory but I suggest going to it as this course introduces some linguistics concepts that could be easier to understand in person.

The professor is very passionate, outgoing and friendly. He actively engages the students by asking questions, telling jokes, and showing video demonstrations. Explains concept in a clear way. However he can be ditzy sometimes, such as forgetting to teach a certain topic and telling the wrong date for the midterm (these may be due to cancellation of first class). Lectures and tutorials are not mandatory, but tutorials are a good time to discuss group project with TAs.

May directly read from Lecture slides sometimes but still try to engage students by asking questions (but people rarely respond). However she is very helpful when you have questions regarding the group project, as she will reply with great detail and explanation. The tutorials are useless and can skip because it only teaches how to use Jamovi, which was already covered in PSYC2010.

Friendly and considerate; she will extend deadlines if she thinks students are having difficulty and welcomes consultations. She also thoroughly explains the assignment rubrics with some examples so we how to do better in our coursework. The course itself is a bit chur though, since you cannot rely on cue cards for the persuasive presentation, you have to spend more time to prepare.

a bit boring in class but you have to attend to know which part he talked about and which part are skipped. Although it is open-book but you won't have time to go thought all by yourself at the end of semester(that's why you have to attend lesson). You need to prepared for it so that you can finish the final exam on time.

This course did performed a different view to review economic performance of countries. It started with the solow model but the latter part is purely text. To conclude, it has some part of math but still in an acceptable range. For the group projects, he was nice and provided a lot of useful comments on the project e.g how he wanted us to show the differences. Maybe a bit fast when he was teaching the math part but overall still good teaching performance.

Friendly and enthusiastic, the professor engages the class by discussing interesting historical events and showing some pictures/videos. However, they are not heavily related to the exam, so you don’t have to attend class to get a good grade. When you don’t know how to do the book report, the professor would give you some ideas to write about. The course does not have heavy workload but isn't easy to get a good grade either, as you need to have rich knowledge of Hong Kong history.

The exam is very tricky. For the MCQ, you need to memorize a lot of specific details in the lecture notes. Furthermore, the questions asked may not be covered in the lecture notes and only mentioned verbally in lectures. Some questions regarding the history of NA can only be found on the website. As for the LQ, you need to write 2 essays of 500 words each, yet the rubrics of the LQ is unclear.
