2018/19 Sem B

C+

先聲明,我2021semB讀,但係唔知點解冇呢個option

首先,答問題永遠都係B+,當然有人會有A-,但係唔好期待咁多(除非你上知天文,下知地理)

然後到assay果part我打左2000幾字最後overall得個C+,但係唔會有任何feedback話你知點解你奶野

如果真係想讀,建議係打assay之前做多點consulation摸清楚他的性癖再落筆(冇做consulation)

想學野就出門轉左

took in 2020/21 Sem B
Answering 3 questions and an essay which I wrote 3000 words. John is very helpful, remember to consult him before you start your essay.

2018/19 Sem B

B

19/20 sem b take
本身嗰course workload 已經低
(Answer/ask 3 questions 50% + essay 50%)
加上轉埋zoom 又唔洗attendance
真係完全唔洗上堂
本身頭3堂都仲有好多人爭答問題
但去到week6 開始 每堂都係得大概10人上zoom
所以可以放心之後其實大把時間畀你問問題拎分
基本上個個答問題都有B+
(P.s. prof比較藍 小心說話 你嘅分會比較好)
自訂題目嘅essay 我hea做
唔夠千五字又冇consult過就交
所以拎依個grade都好正常
想認真學嘢嘅千其唔好reg
但如果你只係文科人 淨係想fullfill area3 requirement
咁依科就適合你

2016/17 Sem B

I have taken it in 2019/2020 Sem B (it won't let me post the right year)

The work load is very light.
There is only one assignment, which is the final paper.
Don't bother to put too much effort in participation. He never tries to understand what the student is trying to saying and jumps to conclusion directly. No one from our class has ever gotten anything above B+ no matter how much effort you put in it.

HOW I GOT AN A:
Basically my paper was written in a narrative that accuses the hypocrascy of amercian tech companies. John has a very obvious political stance despite he tried to cover it up. So if you want a good grade from John, don't write anything that critizes China or authoritarian governments. I believed I would have gotten an A+ if wasn't that he has given everyone a B+ for particiaption.

If you wish to learn something from this class, this class isn't for you. John acknowledges in the first class that he doesn't know a lot about the subjects he is teaching. However, I don't get why didn't cityU just hires someone who does know what they are teaching? During this semester, I had to correct him several times for the false information he was providing, since I am from the tech sector myself.

Despite John claiming he isn't biased. However, it is very obvious he has a strong attitude against democracy. In the class where he taught about Nuclear energy, he literally said that Authoritarians/ dictators are great (FYI: the class is recorded). When a professor makes it so clear what his stance is in class, it creates atmosphere that supresses other voices as students with a different stance would automatically censor themselves inorder to prevent themselves in getting a bad grade.

It is a trap for me. Answered/Raised 3 questions in his lectures, all feedback was B+, most of the students got B+ as well and those 3 questions carries 50% of the final course grade; completed an individual essay with 23xx words, which carries the remaining 50% of the course grade. I can say that the essay seriously pulled down my grade, the marking scheme is unclear.

Same as previous 2 comments, 18/19 sem B讀不過未有得揀.
Easy course! You only have to ask 4/5 questions in 13 weeks of classes, he will give a grade to your question, usually B range.
+ Exam
Exam means hand-in an essay to canvas during exam day and time. He told you the essay topic at the beginning of day1 class. And he is very nice, you can consult him of your essay topic.
-No attendance

You need to follow his rules in class. Don't talk with your friends during his class! and you can come and leave the class anytime without notice him.

18/19SEM B讀不過未有得揀
HEA讀之選
淨係問3條問題+一份essay
啲問題亂問都會有b+
唔洗驚問唔到 好多人走堂
去到後期得幾條友上堂 一定問到
又唔計attendance 極端啲講如果一堂問到3條既話咁就唔洗再上了
至於essay 我覺得最緊要題目揀得夠特別
唔好同人撞, 有哂正反
我只係寫左1700字only

其實係18/19 Sem B take嘅,不過未有得揀住。
呢個GE好輕鬆,hea讀之選!
3個Verbal Assignment就佔20%@, 1份term paper 40%!
發言三次真係好容易,3個鐘堂有2個鐘discussion time,一班得30幾人,仲要好多人都會走堂,如果咁都發言少過3次就係自己問題。
唔take attendance,可以瘋狂走堂,我上過3堂發言過4次,3次B+,1次B,好少人上到A-,所以夠3次B+已經可以走堂架啦。

Term paper自訂topic,講一個technology對society嘅影響就得,好自由,但係最好specific啲。有問過John,佢比個例子係用smartphone對interpersonal relationship嘅影響。其實就係好似argumentative essay咁,要有stance,正反都要講,有example support。至於點比grade就唔知道,冇出paper嘅grade,但係fyr我冇consult過,寫左2700字左右,應該paper ok先會拉到A嘅。

John其實幾好人,雖然教書冇乜用,冇人聽嘅。自己教啲野去做唔好嘈到佢就ok,上堂中途想走就自己走。所以如果對理科冇興趣但係想要好grade,幾推薦take呢個GE。想學野就不了。

成個 course 淨係上堂問/ 答三條問題同埋寫一篇文, 篇文內容自己訂, 字數不限, 最重要係訂到個題目係可以做 critical analysis, 例如 AI 對社會既影響.

一堂三個鐘佢只會講一個鐘然後啲時間就用黎問問題, 可以係上堂講過既野或者係關於 Technology and Society 既問題. 一個 sem 最多可以問/ 答最多五條, 而佢只會計最高分果三條. 如果想比佢揀答問題就最好坐頭果幾行, 頭果幾堂可能要早少少去霸位. 答既野只要正正常常都會有 B+, 但係好難上到 A range, 印象中都係比過幾次 A-. 我答左四條, 三個 B+ 一個 B. 到 Week 14 佢會特登開多堂比未答夠數既同學返去攞分. 基本上上堂個個都係做自己野. 答夠三條之後多數人都走堂唔會再上.

不過靚 grade 又輕鬆既 GE 其實仲有唔少選擇, 唔好期望呢科會學到呢乜野而且上堂真係好悶佢只係照 ppt 讀.

2016/17 Sem B

成個sem都係問或都答3條問題加一份essay
唔計attendance 上堂講書嗰part幾悶下 不過可以自由做自己野 唔好嘈到佢講書就得
嗰3條問題會揀坐第一排的人問/答先 想易啲完成3條問題就要早少少去霸個靚位 通常啲人都係係佢頭一個鐘就講完書嗰時先去上堂 week13因為有人未問哂3條問題 佢專登開多堂俾嗰啲人問問題 咁都問唔足3條咁我都無野好講
基本上啲問題正正常常都會B+ 差少少都有B 因為問完即時俾分 如果有B可以之後答多條洗走佢 只計最高分嗰3條
essay我無乜consult過 求其寫 有條問題B左 所以最後先得B 不過真心輕鬆 如果自問英文對答唔差可以考慮下呢科 性價比唔錯 不過個grade要上A有難度

This course is great for getting a good grade. Basically you just need to ask logical question, i once heard someone ask a silly question and still get a b for that.

John Lin will have a additional week 14 class for specific questioning section, for those always miss classes. Sometimes, if you are sitting quite far away or you are a male, you will need to raise your hand for a bit longer until he "notice" you, first round chances are all ladies. LOL

The final paper is quite simple. You will have to set up the topic for yourself. I wrote about. He expect the topic to be unique so pay a little more attention on topic selection.

If you are looking to learn something. Reg another GE.

同學樓下同學所講 呀sir會扮望向第2度 扮睇唔到有d人舉手
tutorial session根本無意義
呀sir次次都揀哂第1排d同學答
攪到d同學早半個鐘黎霸位 呀sir真係未見過佢地個樣係幾猙獰 又撞人又成 呢家上堂學習都要搞到咁不擇手段勾心鬥角?
第1排d同學上堂果陣咪又係個個拎住部notebook上fb睇youtube
唔見得佢地有幾熱心上你堂囉呀sir 為左應付你個毫無意義既tutorial session咋
你d教學方式好有問題囉

好有私心既呀sir
一堂頭個半鐘上lecture 個半鐘問答
要舉手問/答問題 但佢靜係會揀女仔 d男仔舉得幾快舉得幾多次都好都扮見唔到
仲要有女仔可以試過一堂內問2條問題
一夠鐘落堂就話today last question 見住有人次次都最快舉都成堂問/答唔到一條問題
好擔心佢改term paper又係會咁唔公平
