SOCI3452 Selected Topics in Sociology II

Shared by Anonymous

2024-07-12

Professor: Professor Jin SUN

Professor Sun has claims he will teach a lot about the global sociology and that he will invite guest lecturers during the course so students can establish a connection and success in the financial industry. In order to ensure his course not being cancelled, he will teach "normally" with PowerPoint. However, this is absolutely a false promise and borderline deception with intent. After the add-drop period, he has completely changed his teaching attitutde. None of the guest lecturers as claimed in the course outline has ever shown up to class, but instead it is about often an 1 hour interview clip from Youtube! He no longer uses PowerPoint to teach, but rather kept on broadcasting Youtube videos and waste most of the class time on students' presentation. He even disrespect the students and constantly make fun of their presentations and insulting the students' supposed "lack of knowledge" on the subject matter when he is the one who has never taught anything in class. For example, he always play on his phone throughout the students present presentation (e.g., texting, watching video, or web surfing) and then afterwards spend the entire Q&A making the presenters feeling humiliated. In short, I found this course has serious teaching quality problems to the point it has become the instructor is rather using the students for his selfish gains for tenure-track promotion, so therefore, I would recommend the students to choose other UGEC courses and have far less confidence with this course.

UFGN1000 In Dialogue With Nature

Shared by Anonymous

2024-07-11

Professor: Cherry Lam To Kam

Dr. Lam taught the lesson in a strict and monotonous manner. For discussions, she will arrange everyone into groups and let every group share their thoughts groupwise. She is an experienced lecturer, so she knows how to deal with texts and also discussions. However, that is not the case for essays(TP and RJ), as she only wants an essay stream that she thinks is correct. Otherwise, you are very possibly subjected to a bad grade. Essays, in my opinion, should be open and free to write what you think is right, especially if you are discussing philosophical and abstract concepts, and as long as it is logically sound and grammatically graceful, it is perfectly fine. Yet, in her class, you are quite limited to writing freely; you should write the one idea that she thinks is right instead of what you think is justifiable. Still, I am happy to take the class because I believe I learned from the texts.

Professor: Ms. Chan Sin Han Catalina

Mediocre, despite what the course outline says, the lessons are not interactive, even in Q&A. Most of the time it's just the teacher talking without student input. Plus, the teacher show bias towards certain topics. However, she is friendly most of the time and will answer your questions on assignments.

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'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

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.

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

2024-05-28

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.

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.

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.

The tutorials are useless and can skip because it only teaches how to use Jamovi, which was already covered in PSYC2010.
