ECON3021 Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory

Shared by Anonymous

2022-04-22

Professor: Mok Kai Chung

Good at teaching and he encourages students to participate in the class discussion. He uses many interesting Chinese fables, traditional stories and proverbs to explain the economic theory. (E.g., use 羊毛出在羊身上 to explain the taxation, use 江山易改本性難移 to explain people’s saving preference, use 朝三暮四 to explain Ricardian Equivalence...)

Very on9 midterm quiz: unreasonably short time and so 9 many questions. No idea why it's 25% of the grade. Need to speak more in tutorials/lectures. Group project can be film poster or short video. May have extra credit assignment (maybe becoz our performance is very poor lmao)

didn't expect good teaching from prof from mainland china, but it turned out that Dr A Yan taught the best among the three. Prof Chow's part is the worst esp his ppt slides: just diagrams from other sources and the content deviated much from what to do in lab reports

UGEB2161 Resource Issues in the Age of Globalization

Shared by Anonymous

2022-04-14

Professor: Prof Lawal Marafa

DO NOT take this course!!! This professor gives very unclear instructions for the op-ed and often has audio and video problems, i.e., he doesn't optimize the quality for video sharing so the video is always very lagging. The in-class activity is also very confusing as he doesn't give clear instructions and everyone was asking each other what to do when we did the in-class activity the first time. His powerpoint slides are also very hard to read as he uses colors that are very contrasting with the background.

UGEB2161 Resource Issues in the Age of Globalization

Shared by Anonymous

2022-04-14

Professor: Prof. Lawal Marafa

The assessment methods are unclear and chaotic! The in-class activities tend to be responding to questions based on a video. Then, you will be put into a breakout room in a group of 8-12 people for 15 mins. Afterward, one person will submit their answers to the UReply. You will have to figure out how to incorporate ideas from 12 people into one single answer for the UReply submission! The professor often has audio problems when broadcasting the video which makes the video rather difficult to listen to. The instructions for the OP-ED are also unclear and quite contradictory! The PowerPoint is rather disorganized (very 1999), and its designs were very distracting.

DSME2021 Applied Econometrics for Business Decisions

Shared by Anonymous

2022-04-11

Professor: Li, Hongyi

Highly do not recommend this professor, his teaching is very unclear and the handwriting in class is hard to read. For the midterm, when he said the midterm was only for chapters 1 to 3, he still included chapter 4 making it confusing for everyone in the test. For the presentation, he said each group had 15 minutes, but in the end, each group only had 10-12 minutes. He would suddenly interrupt you and disrupt your presentation.

The topics of the course are multi-faceted and many hot topics are covered. Each class provides a comprehensive introduction to these topics. There's a lot of interaction in class, two-way communication is great. The atmosphere of the class is very relaxed and we can express our opinions. In the presentation, both the professor and the classmates were involved in giving timely and valuable suggestions. I am very grateful to Professor TSAO for bringing us such an interesting course!

MPUP5402 Comparative Public Policy

Shared by Candicechinho

2022-02-08

Professor: Prof. TSAO King Kwun

This course focuses on the Asian region. We learned the methods and tools of comparative public policy analysis. We also analyzed anti-corruption policies, higher education policies, etc. in the context of the times. Professor TSAO King Kwun, who taught the class, is a very kind, affable, and knowledgeable teacher. He often used his own experiences in other countries, such as Thailand and Chicago, as examples to incorporate his knowledge and share his unique insights and experiences with us, which was very fascinating. In class, Prof. TSAO encouraged us to actively participate in the interaction and we were able to freely express our opinions and insights. The discussions and interactions in class not only enlivened our minds, but the clash of ideas often made me think back and ponder even after the class.

Prof. Tsao is one of the nicest and most responsible professors I have met in my school's life. His lectures were always well prepared, organized, on schedule, and interesting. Please trust me, you will never be sleepy and exhausted in his lectures during the entire semester. Sometimes it was very kind that he could remind us many days before the due dates of our assignments even as graduate students. I feel that it is the greatest honor to meet him at CUHK!

Professor Tsao is knowledgeable and approachable. The content of the class is both deep and interesting. Most importantly, Professor Tsao attaches great importance to discussion. He will encourage each student to express their views so that everyone can fully integrate into the class. Professor Tsao is committed to studying various aspects of modern Chinese society, covering a wide range of topics, including higher education, population aging, corruption, housing policy, and medical policy. Professor Tsao carefully read the students' reports and gave the most practical suggestions. I am very lucky to be Professor Tsao's student!

No lecture notes (until the following lecture), PPTs, videos provided. Make sure you attend her lectures to take notes and earn bonus points. Her English was very fluent and did not have a bad accent. She spoke so confidently and made us mind-blown every lecture. Marketing itself is interesting, but definitely the assessments are not. Recommend if grading is not your main concern.

Strong recommend to use the required textbook! To understand thoroughly, read the textbook again and again (because most of the content and examples she used came from the textbook, though some questions from the textbook were very problematic). Also, she taught something extra and those extra knowledge would be assessed during exams. However, she tried her best to teach everything in a clear manner, and was always happy to answer questions during the lecture or in emails.

Not interesting, not intellectually rewarding, not generous (actually is extremely strict) in grading, not remotely good in any aspect. If and only if you are a masochist and enjoy being fucked over and over, having your gpa going down down down, then choose him.

很有趣並且人很好,不過這課會有10%participation,會隨機叫學生的名字來提問,因此如果學生有社交恐懼症或者不懂如何答題會很不舒服。另外,用ppt但是那個ppt有一個很吵,很難聽,很煩人的翻頁音效,每次聽到這聲音就讓我想去洗耳朵。有時候會講偏題,不過有時候也會提到一些現實生活中的例子,很生動有趣。這課還有3個quiz,其中一個是surprise quiz,不會提前告訴你什麼時候考,不過只抽2/3的quiz作為成績,所以也還行。
