I am responding to the student who wrote in English and got a B grade. Absolutely double-standard lecturer. Being strict and stubborn on student’s deadlines and arrangements (with little mercy) while failing to redeem his own promises. Always say “I am a strict teacher” but being not strict for his words. The grade is already there. But Alex if you see this, would you just be a little responsible and tell us what happened, simply by writing a post on canvas? Such a behaviour is unacceptable even as a student, let alone a Uni lecturer. Please be a man of your words, not a coward like this.
I took the course during COVID-19 so the class was done online. However, Alex Wong chose not to record and upload the lectures online. When students emailed him saying they’re residing in countries where the time zones are very different he responded rudely and did not care.
I would say approximately 20% of the class is taught in Chinese with 20% of the lecture notes also written in Chinese despite Alex Wong knowing there are non-Chinese students in class.
As for the course work, the teacher did not give us any guidelines and criteria on how to answer his very vague coursework questions. Students asked for grades and feedback on their coursework so they’d know where they could improve but Alex Wong replied grading takes a long time and I will release some grades in 2 weeks- he never did so. We were not returned a single grade on any of our work.
The professor said in the first class that he doesn’t give As and A+ and ultimately, he was was uncooperative, stubborn, and unclear. I strongly suggest to not take this course.
Workload: One presentation, One 2-page reflective essay, One exam, and participation.
Structure of this course: This course will cover some introductory Buddhist teachings, and also the relationship between the Buddhist worldview and science (quantum mechanics).
This is a good course if you are interested in philosophy of life, Buddhism and quantum mechanics. Just keep an open mind and you will find this course not so difficult.
