我覺得係quite hea的
1. Attendance + Participate 15%
每一堂都會有group presentation 之後會叫我地俾分,應該係個時計attendance。但是participate 就吾知啦,利申一半堂無上

2. Assignments 30%
總共會有5份assignment,會叫你post上fb group,可以參考一下其他人點做,一般個個都鬥長,不過要留意deadline,每次吾同。

3. Group Presentation 20%
第一堂一定要上,因為會分組之後鬥快揀題目,就可以揀d時間好同題目好做,如果太慢就可能要第三堂就present

4. Exams 35%
not in exam period, one in week 7 and one in week 13. Very easy, mc and t/f, 溫書就會識。 有二堂會請嘉賓黎講talk, exam會出番

其實最後攞到呢個grade真係令人喜出望外,因為我起初只係predict自己攞B range。

Stella平日都幾nice,上堂都講解得幾詳細,但time management 較差(其實咁同好多同學present overtime 有好大關係)。

Assessment:
1. Attendance + Participation(15%)
雖然明面上Stella並無堂堂take attendance,但係每次presentation完我哋投票嘅時候都要寫低SID,所以係間接上take咗attendance。當然,你可以搵friend send個 Room code比你(自己都幫過groupmate咁做)或者直接比SID有上堂嘅人叫佢幫你投埋票

2. Assignments(30%)
TA會開一個Facebook group,每次有assignment就post上去,total要做5次,無字數限制。我哋星期三上堂,係落堂前講咗題目之後通常會係下個星期二嘅夜晚八點due,我自己通常會係星期日或者星期一先做,睇吓其他同學打幾多先,但係因為題目幾有發揮空間,所以好多人每次都打好多,我通常會折中打最長同最短之間嘅篇幅。

3. Presentation(20%)
由Week 4開始,每個星期會有3組present,係Week 1嘅時候要分好組同揀好題目。呢部份既分一半係由同學比(presentation 後投票),一半係由Lecturer比。雖然Course outline寫明’The presentation should be MAXIMUM 12 minutes long’,但係幾乎每次都有人超時,超時嘅程度過分到要一個鐘先完成所有presentation,影響課程進度,導致有時教唔切書要下堂繼續教返之前嘅嘢。Stella見有人超時,多數都會比佢地繼續講落去,但係有時真係太過分就會叫停。其實只要留意下,就會發覺每次有人overrun嘅時候,Stella塊面都會越來越黑...而準時present完的話Stella其實都有留意,佢比我個組嘅comment入面就有Good time management。我明白12分鐘並唔足夠做一個好詳細嘅分析,大家都想present得完善啲,但係我覺得應該嘗試推己及人同自律一啲,畢竟overrun係會影響成班嘅進度

4. Quiz(35%)
有兩次quiz,分別係係Week 8同Week 13,題目都幾tricky,但俾心機溫書就會識。因為個人答題比較唔小心,所以第一次Quiz只是過mean(mean:73),但係去check卷嘅時候TA話呢個分已經唔錯,因為有啲人得二十幾三十分同好多人6字頭。第二次Quiz因為無公佈分數所以唔清楚

Others:
有兩次Guest Lecture,一次係由蘋果日報前總編輯鄭明仁先生講Tabloid Journalism嘅發展,另一次則由有「狗仔隊之父」稱號嘅春麗講有關paparazzi嘅嘢,對我嚟講兩次都有好有得著

總括而言,呢個course係學到嘢嘅,內容亦十分有趣,但由於不確定性太高,唔建議aim A range嘅人讀

我有appeal所以知自己breakdown。

Assignment x 5 ( A+ )係fb打野only,好簡單。樓下有人屌人做爛市,話人寫得多字,我真係笑而不語。如果你係勁既當然可以用百幾字去概括好多論點,但做果陣好多人都真係當隨筆咁寫,但其實用個腦諗下都知要refer返notes佢講過既論點,再用果啲point去elaborate。多字係在所難免。佢雖然睇落好hea又冇講字數限制,但往往呢啲位先係最伏。

Project (b+): 要第一堂就form group搶題目,waitlist入黎既就要周圍乞組入,好煩的。

Quiz :第一個quiz 82分only, 第2個炒撚左,得61分。原因係因為佢wk12 d野即場教,教完就即場考,唔熟啲野所以炒左。而且佢最後果堂仲要係個TA教,個TA講到19999咁。如果唔係quiz 2炒左而家應該有A range so sad.

Attendance: 唔知佢點take,我得b+。我估計佢係用scorative take attemdance(每次有組present完佢都要求人地用呢個app/上呢個網去評分,我懷疑係係果陣take,因為之前讀過有科GE都係咁)

5 online assignment + project + 2 quiz
份online assignment 係post上fb個群組到 明明話briefly explain,個個作到水蛇春咁長。。。不過我無理到,照打番正常既篇幅。
然後project都算幾易,不過我覺得我個份做得唔係太好。
Quiz 全mc + T/F,有溫書唔難,好多人早走
我Quiz 1 above mean 幾分,quiz 2唔知,其實普通溫下notes,個project正正常常就一定有 b range。
個professor都好nice 係啲英文差左啲。。

完全同意樓下同學既留言,明明professor俾既sample都係得幾句,啲人就寫幾百字,寫埋一堆偏曬題既野。不過我唔係求高分,次次都係寫幾句就算。
成個課程係易既,接近一半堂無返,兩次quiz前照notes溫一日,成績都有over average。
present又係好易,5-6個人present十幾分鐘。
整體黎講,課程係有趣簡單既,啲concept就算唔明,都可以google下就會識,推薦。

呢科比下面班人吹捧得太勁,今個Sem我可謂中伏。不過咁,我就希望造福下人群,所以就講下啦。Lecturer係好人,不過課程嘅實際操作多弊病

課程內容:
5 Online Assignment(30%) +1 Presentation(20%) +2 MC Quiz(35%) +Attendance(15%)
呢個Sem有2堂係有Guest,一個悶一個有趣
簡評:
1. 佢syllabus有寫Attendance計分(15%),不過執行上就好Hea,Lecturer亦只係試過一次公開Take Attendance(其實幾正)
2. 有Friend waiting list入黎,點知第一堂一早就已經分好哂Present嘅組同題目,搞到佢之後要自己喺個Lecture Hall R人比佢入組,易做嘅題目根本冇佢份,我勸大家冇咩事都唔好Waitlist呢個Course
3. 網上功課有5個Online Assignment,全部都係喺個Facebook群組度打野,每個Assignment預你一星期完成。條題目的確唔難,Tutor亦冇要求多字數,不過個個都做爛市,都打N咁多字,好似多字就有獎咁,根本冇人敢打好少字,我真係多_謝哂一班做爛市嘅好同學。估計每次Online Assignment平均最少都起碼700字UP(除咗有一次係打一條問題問Guest,不過仍然有不少做爛市之人出現,打條過百字嘅好問題問佢,真好野) ,搞到Workload大好多。你可以話「車,某啲GE要求啲字仲多啦,你呢啲算咩」,其實食一舊屎同食兩舊屎都係食屎。
4. 到Present,Present會喺堂上進行,每堂會有3組Present。但幾時進行由Lecturer決定,有時一上堂就Pre,有時Break完Pre,有時......另外,話就話最多只係得12分鐘做Presentation,不過好多時Lecturer都比你超時(大前題係嗰日課程唔趕)。咁呢個時侯一眾同學又發揮做爛市精神,一於Pre多啲,有幾組Pre到夠鐘落堂都未完。有心做爛市嘅人注意,如果真係超太多,Lecturer係會叫停你的。
仲有Present個分佔全科20%,有10%係同學比(Lecturer會叫同學將3組嘅表現依次排),10%係Lecturer比。基本上你個Powerpoint係必必必必必需要有條好笑/吸引人嘅片(比班就瞓著嘅人笑下,大聲夾好笑嘅片先有人鍾意,就係咁低質,請向現實低頭)、有色彩繽紛嘅圖案同背景(引人注意),除咗Lecturer之外係冇人會想睇你份Powerpoint嘅內容架,想人地比高分啲你,自己稔下點搞。
5. Quiz方面其實唔難,係全MC,有睇Lecture Notes/冇睇都識答的,不過佢陰D陰D就扣你分,而且題目唔算多,變相錯一題=扣幾%咁濟(不過Lecture好似之後意識到有呢個問題,不過都只係加咗幾條題目)。總之個TEST搞到個個都唔高分(高手例外)

總括而言,勁人係勁,讀咩科都A。拎到A嘅我恭喜你,你係識玩,亦都勁。不過平常人你預自己讀呢科都可能B/C RANGE。以一個GE黎講,實在唔算抵玩。實在太多人為因素搞到你難攞高分。

A-

Assignments x5
Just Facebook posts - Find a piece of news matching the theme provided, and give short comments. You can finish each within 5 mins.

Tests x2
Mid term test and final test of MC and true-or-false questions
The questions are not hard, and mostly you can find the answers on notes except the ones about guest lecture

Group presentation x1
Groupmates are randomly assigned, but you can swap with the others. Only need to prepare presentation, and there is not any group report.
Every week there will be three groups giving presentation, and fellow students will vote for the best one. Lecturer also gives her own rank, and will send you feedbacks afterwards. She is nice and fair.

Guest lectures x2
No report is needed afterwards. The guest lectures are quite interesting.
One is Anthony Wong Chau Sang
One is a manager from Apple Daily Paparazzi team
Both are worth attending.

In general, this is the GE course I like the most over my two years' u life yet. Workload is light, and lecturer is so helpful. She is passionate in media work. I m a non-media student but I can handle it.

But most class materials except PPT are in Chinese, so I don't really recommend foreigners to reg, it will be a bit hard to follow!

5份assignments 極簡單 一個明星new+少少caption
expect full attendance(每堂都要交對present組別既grade, 如果有frd可以幫手既)
2個mc quiz 唔知點解好嚴肅 有晒seating plan 限晒時間咁
真心覺得好易 (exactly 係ppt到copy出來) 同埋加少少guest lecture既野(真係考你有冇聽)

proj其實係呢個course最煩既地方
projmate係唔可以自己揀 只有佢random派俾你
如果約左一大班人想一齊present就唔好reg 因為有排你換組
topic係佢訂既 有d都幾麻煩 例如佢會叫你conduct一個細既social research問大家點睇某個明星(say,justin bieber)

最值得講既係GUEST LECTURES
一次係請左王秋生黎 其實幾有趣 又好笑
另一次係請左一個資深記者黎 其實都學到幾多野
應該係我讀過最有趣既ge 而且都輕鬆

唯一唔太建議對明星/gossip冇興趣既人讀

2014/15 Sem B

A-

1. Assignments X 5 (30%)
answer a question in fb group, write about 100-150 words, easy, but read the question carefully, otherwise you will lose marks easily, also pay attention to the tricky deadline

2. Presentation X 1 (20%)
the teacher will assign the groups and topics, 5 to 6 ppl a group, 15 mins maximum, topics are not so difficult, try to be creative, both teacher and classmates will grade you (50% teacher & 50% classmates), peer evaluation

3. Quizzes X 2 (35%)
one mid-term & one final, all mc & true-false questions, not difficult, just read the notes, no need to read the extra reading materials

4. Attendance (15%)
take attendance every week, do not use mobile phones and chat loudly, lessons are quite boring, guest lectures are more interesting~

2014/15 Sem B

A-

1) 5份個人
實際好少野做,叫你搵一篇新聞講下感想.我都係搵左條LINK,打左一兩句就完.不過最緊要係要符合題目要求,有幾次交完Stella上堂都講返某D同學交既其實唔係Scandal/others, 所以都唔係是但搵新聞
2)小組
呢個要睇自己組個題目易唔易做,雖然同學之間比分我個組最低分,但Stella應該自己有調整
3)兩份Quiz
全部MC. 有專心上堂同睇Readings就識, 唔係難

2013/14 Sem B

講下workload:

1. Lecture
每個禮拜都有ppt, 關於狗仔隊、觀眾同名人嘅關係,會介紹一D media嘅theory, e.g. magic bullet theory, 對media有興趣嘅人可以讀下。
對我來講唔悶,間唔中有片睇同guest lecture.
有reading, 深淺都有,可以加強你對media & communication嘅認識,不過考試唔會出, 得閒睇下會學到野

2. Group project
6個人一組,不過係randomly selected, 好彩我冇遇到free rider
我week 3就present, 因為係volunteer. 早D present題目會容易D, 但係會少時間準備,所以成件事要好efficient!
我地嘅題目係搵1個係你做project嘅上個月好出名嘅藝人做investigation, contrast media同audience對嗰位celebrity嘅impression有冇出入
老師同同學嘅比分佔一半,同學會投票邊組做得最好,我地岩岩好係第2名,第2名係B+. 第1同第3分別係A (or A+? I forgot it sorry)同 B。投票嘅時候要注意張票唔好寫錯資料,因為係記名。寫錯左or唔跟instruction投票,例如排1,2,3有兩組都係1, 咁就當你absent

3. Individual assignments
一共有5份,全部喺facebook個group交,不過好簡單,5分鐘實KO到
一定要睇清楚題目,唔符合佢要求即刻肥你!

4. Quiz
有2個, 一個mid-term同一個week 13
有上堂有溫ppt一定識,好straight forward唔會trick你
分2 part. Part A係True or False. Part B係MC
我第一份就97/100,第2份就唔知

Professor:
- 好nice好好人, ppt解釋得好清晰, 唔明落台問佢唔會托手掙! 最尾個堂搵左佢影相haha
- 見到佢對media嘅熱誠

呢科個grade聽閒唔錯,值得一試!^^

A-

上堂幾serious,每堂都要take attendance (如果寫錯仲要唔計)
兩個quiz(好straightforward)加一個present(assessment: 50% student, 50% teacher)同5份assignment(每份5分鐘一定做完)

overall課程幾interesting, workload唔大,可以一試

2012/13 Sem B

上堂比較嚴肅,
Dr Chia講講下powerpoint, 鍾意問下同學問題.
答中好似有分加.
有present, 有五份assignment.
assignment好簡單, 可以係揾一段新聞link, 答一條問題(叫你答一句) ; 全部上網交

我哋present係兩組debate
咁啱遇到勁對手, 我哋輸咗, 拉低咗分.
同學都會幫手畀分......

鍾意睇 scandel 嘅人應該有興趣

有MC quiz, 有温書會好易.
冇考試
