個MISS搞電腦搞左兩粒鐘上堂照讀NOTES就算
有咪又唔用講野勁細聲
啲notes同個test完全唔同 教啲野完全冇考過
個QUIZ仲痴線D字完全睇唔明又唔比GOOGLE
同佢比個EXERCISE題目完全唔同
根本唔知做緊乜 伏到癲千祈唔好揀呢科
最好就係上堂有得玩電腦

GE2106 Philosophy and Life: A Dialogue

C+

Workload:
1 Final test (8-10 compulsory short questions and choose 2 out of 3 long essay questions in 2 hours if I remember correctly)
1 Group Project (Presentations) Topics chosen from a list provided by the instructor
1 Essay regarding your project topic

If you reg this course and hope for constructive discussion in class, you may be disappointed.

The test:
The test is super difficult. You need to memorize everything from the lecture and the notes. Don't expect open-end questions in the test, only contents taught will be assessed. No critical thinking required, just recite the notes and you will succeed.

Group Project:
The topics are interesting. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to get a good grade as the main aim of the presentation is not to present your ideas, but to arouse discussion. To say that is a presentation, I would say that it's a discussion led by your group. Also, the duration requirement is quite high, 35 minutes minimum. However, Harris will give you a comprehensive comment after your presentation to help with your essay.

Essay:
The topics must be the same as your presentation topic, but your thesis or the arguments or the example used can be different. You have 3 weeks to write your paper. The time is quite sufficient.

Overall, I won't recommend you to reg this course unless you are really interested in the topics.

GE2336 Understanding Phenomena Around Us: An Introduction To Systems Thinking

A-

呢個course係SEM major其中一個core course, topic係system thinking,即係要諗有乜野可以影響一個event,跟住呢個event會引起d乜野又會影響番呢個event,形成causal loop(s),就咁講真係幾抽象,唔知up乜,而且好講logical thinking,變左成件事好LS feel

Workload同assessment方面:
1. homework assignment
因為Sherman上堂會discuss每一條homework題目,所以有上堂就一定識,所以呢part可以話係送分,而且將答案搬字過紙既時候可以當review
2. group assignment
係application of VemSim,一個整causal loop diagram同simulation既software。要做既就係將一個case既causal loop diagram用VenSim畫出黎,再sub番唔同情況落去個software度,形成一個report
3. group project - report+presentation
自選題目,最好做social或者其他比較貼身既topic,選題時要諗清楚可唔可以形成causal loops,咁樣係做pj既時期會順利d
4. examination
open-book,除左lecture notes, assignment+answer key同堂上自己抄既手寫notes之外,建議帶埋字典,唔好失埋d冤枉分,不過個exam唔算易,concept要清
5. attendance
好簡單,唔好走堂,正正常常都會有8分(10分滿分),active participation就可以攞埋淨低果2分

不過始終呢個course都係開左2個sem (16/17 sem b+summer),curriculum同exam既難度有機會再有fine tuning

2quiz
1group proj (booklet + poster+presentation)

quiz 唔難MC 黎, 睇過1次lecture note quiz1 個分都90% above
quiz 2 只係多左條short question 但望上去好似好易 (雖然唔知quiz2 咩分)
成份group project 差唔多都係我一個人做晒 (deadline 前幾日開始做). 所以先覺得重workload; 但如果同組肯做workload絕對輕鬆
attendance 唔計分, 所以叫人幫你tick 返個名就得
只可以話 group project 佔好重可以影響起馬1個大grade, 搵好groupmate 比心機做project 好過比心機溫quiz

P.S Dennis 雖然奇奇怪怪但我唔覺得佢似其他人講到咁伏, 比分係正正常常 (利申: 冇consult 過佢) , 幾個friend reg 佢之前都拎過A range

GE2232 Knowing Ourselves Better in Work and Life

As a year 3 student, i find this course is as difficult as my year 3 major core courses. It is true the class is interesting but the exam is very long and include too many details. The exam covers almost all chapters of the textbook. Even major core may not cover as many concepts. Most terminologies could be searched using Google but mc questions are all from the textbook. My score suffered a lot in mc part (i did not buy the textbook). The demand of english is very high, especially in presentation. Fortunately, Toni is very nice and gives us useful advices for the group project that helps to save the grade at the end. Overall, this is an interesting but also very challenging course for junior students.

今個summer讀既 課程內容超級有趣而且勁輕鬆 但d notes d vocab對我黎講好深
stani教左3堂 其餘都係一個好似叫小梅既女仔教 project都係佢改 佢教得好好架 好好人 睇得出有好好備課
工作量勁低 堂堂都好多片睇 堂堂都講唔夠兩個鐘就落堂 淨低果個鐘可以做group project consult
兩份in class exercise:
唔會話你知邊堂有in class exercise 今個sem就係第4堂同尾二果堂
都係勁勁勁簡單 齋吹水的
一份gp project report:
搵一單暴力既罪案 用教過既theory分析個罪犯心理 同比d solutions佢 唔洗present 大概4千字到 同4個大陸人一組 反而人品好好 又唔aggressive 好勤力默默姦雲 唔會擦prof鞋架 教左我好多寫文技巧 超有交帶 第一次遇到唔會做deadline fighter既組員 交report前二星期已經做哂 覺得做得好好
一個test:
有mc同fill in the blanks(無提示既 要自己記住哂d keyword)
我覺得都幾難 但其實都係我太心散無心機溫 mc有好多唔sure fill in the blanks果到淨係識2題 其他都係吹 考完好後悔點解唔比心機溫 心諗pk啦 好驚會c 好彩b+ 可能project真係拉返分

總之呢個呢個course真係好好 教d野又有趣 workload又低 比grade鬆手 之前上過同dept叫love sex既ge又係一樣勁輕鬆(果個連attendance都唔計添,次次返去20個人都無)呢個dept真係有良心

Course work :
Quiz x 2 + Grp Presentation x1
Details :
=>Quiz 1 (MC x 60, cover 頭2個 modules)
=>Quiz 2 (MC x 20 , LQ~300 words, cover 第3個module)
=>Grp Presentation (揀個專業職業, 整booklet (~20-30 pg) + poster)
————————————————————————————————
“讀後感”:
Quiz 1 & 2 内容唔係同一個tutor教,
*Quiz 1(MCx 20) 係Joseph, 提供詳細清晰ppt 同sample 解釋theory, 明左再記下就ok
*Quiz 2 (MC+LQ) 係Anthony, 主要教答LQ既思路邏輯推論, 幾乎堂堂講similar既野, Theory 唔多教,考前比個範圍大綱,考前1堂大概講下某幾個theory
P.S.如果想A range, 詳背Joseph 既ppt theory/concept/definition, 唔明就search 下;Anthony 教既課題就唔該自主學習啦, 用多d距教既推論方向, 同terms
*Grp Presentation : time management做好d,内容專業d好, presentation 要concise, accurate, meaningful。唔洗present既grp要寫comment紙當attendance, 寫學到d咩professional。你可以做自己野,但好似話張紙計bonus...XD

學到好多Psycho terms,係個學到野而workload又唔算繁重既GE,
肯溫書都會有好grade,值得一讀!

I am not sure whether Airlie Heung had prepared for her classes. She often seemed too unprepared for the topics she was going to teach.

She had to teach Han Kang's works but failed to identify some essential Korean cultural traits conveyed in the story. She does not know there is democratic election in South Korea and the dynamic social movements that brought about the social changes; she taught Shirley Lim's poetry on HK's Umbrella Movement but missed out the minute details as to why the protesters became disunited like 'pieces of puzzles'.

I wished I had a teacher who treasured her students' time.

powerpoint 說不上完全無用,不過大部份都是example,圖畫多過字,對溫集exam作用不大。反而有兩個classwork係 pop-up quiz,與考試會出的MC差不多,都幾有用。老師不會照讀書或powerpoint,課堂是有趣不會悶。個人認為exam 不是內容太難,而是範圍太廣(因為無,midterm,所以所有chapter都考),根本不夠時間讀。

GE2211 Sexuality, Culture and Diversity

A-

呢個course 係喺2017年暑sem 讀既
內容係非常之特別,而且上堂時會有機會接觸到社會上被邊緣化嘅人,性小眾等等。

Grade 就分3部份:
1. in-class journal (20%)
要攞足呢20%, 只要100% 出席率就得
因為每一堂都要寫一篇一版紙嘅文章,針對嗰日講嘅issue 發表下你自己點睇同埋自己嘅感想。
Hea 寫一版就得,你中意的話double spacing 都冇問題
呢20%根本就係送俾你。
其中一個禮拜係唔使上堂,不過你要去參觀一個同sexuality 有關嘅機構,可以係 午夜藍(協助男性性工作者嘅機構)、紫藤(協助女性性工作者嘅機構)等等
呢一個活動係compulsory 架,仲要影相證明你有去到

2. Group Project (40%)
呢到包括一次group presentation 同埋一份2000-2500 字既group report
Presentation 主要係圍繞一啲cultural groups, 講下社會大眾對佢地既誤解,或者係佢哋受到歧視嘅issues, 然後就要promote anti-discrimination message

個人建議題目要早啲諗定,因為即使lecture 會俾一啲recommend topics 你都好,你一定要consult lecturer 去確定你嘅題目係可行,做到既。
同埋如果想攞高grade 既話,你唔會想揀果啲recommend topics架啦... 嗰個人都揀嗰啲,咁你嘅題目邊怱嚟得特別呢?
除此之外,你唔單止要整一個PowerPoint slide 去present, 你仲要設計一個poster
所以一定要預多啲時間去做

Group report 比較簡單,去寫返一啲同你個present差唔多嘅嘢, 只係多咗一part literature review 咁
要求要有最少10 個reference (books/journal)

3. In class Quiz (40%)
Open book, 唔洗驚
考法唔一定,可以係MC, Fill the blanks, True or False
暑Sem 就只係考true/false
覆蓋嘅範圍唔單只係lecture ppt, 甚至連埋你地present 既ppt slide 都考埋。
不過都係open book, 輕鬆既。

呢一個課程會比到好多機會你去接觸性小眾例如係同性戀、性工作者、雙性人,而且話題非常之開放,講咗好多關於性愛嘅嘢啦,亦都係講到宗教嘅睇法係咪一定同同性戀有衝突咁
所以我覺得呢個課程其實非常之有意義,好有啟發性
但如果你係一啲有道德潔癖嘅人,見到同性戀或者係其他性小眾就會覺得佢哋好污糟、有病啊咁樣嘅話,咁我就唔建議你讀
一定要保持一個開放嘅態度,你先至可以了解,同埋明白到佢哋嘅睇法同感受。

GE2221 Violence and Crime

A

呢個course 其實我係2017 年暑sem 讀既
不過大致上都同sem A /B 一樣

Grade 主要based on 3部份:

1. In class assignment (30%)
係Week 1 - 13 入面,會有2-3個lecture 完咗之後會有一份exercise 做,問番你一啲果堂既野。睇番啲PowerPoint 通常都會識做
但問題係幾時有in class assignment 係唔知架,所以讀呢科最好唔好走太多堂,萬一唔好彩走咗有assignment 果堂就好影響個grade 架喇

2. Term Group Report (30%)
係最後一個禮拜要交一份4000字既report, 講一單案件,分析罪犯點解會犯案,再俾solution 咁。
Report 算容易,要求都唔算高,要有最少10 個reference (books/journal) 就得
但因為呢個係group project, 所以遇到freerider/豬隊友
一樣GG
我嗰陣就係遇到豬隊友,結果4000字差唔多我一個人寫哂.....
但係stani 會upload 一份sample essay 上canvas, 係只要跟足入面既format 就唔會差得去邊。

3. Final Quiz (40%)
最後一堂會有Final Quiz, closed book , 考哂所有lecture
考法不一定,睇番之前既留言會有MC, Fill in the blanks 呀, short question 咁
暑Sem 就出MC 同Fill in the blanks
有溫書就冇咩問題,唔會太伏

雖然stani 係main lecturer, 但其實好多既lecture 都係啲TA 教。不過呢樣係好事黎,因為stani 本身啲英文好難聽,而且照ppt讀,好悶
但如果你對犯罪學同埋心理學有興趣的話,呢個course 會係唔錯既選擇。
