GE1113 Visual Literacy and Cultural Thinking 視像規則與文化思維

B+

I took this course because I am interested in films and some forms of art. Content of the course is distributed a bit strangely. Colour composition is repeated almost every week in the first half of the course - which is unnecessary. You will be bored during the lectures if you have understood the theory in the first two weeks, because Don really repeat it in most lectures. Also, the cultural aspect of the course only covers at most two lectures in the last few weeks, which I think is a bit misleading. Culture is an vital aspect of art and cinema that could be covered more comprehensively.

Workload - it's okay, I didn't find the tasks particularly enjoyable or challenging. There is a short quiz, a few photography assignments, a 20 min presentation, and final quiz. Quizzes requires you to go back and remember the correct terminology, details of art work like artist, period of creation, where it was created, artistic technqiues etc. In addition, there is a trip to an art gallery.

Attendance - important. Don makes you sign a declaration form which states that you cannot miss more than 3/4 lecture/tutorials.

All in all, if you value your time, and you don't like repetitive content, don't take this class.
