A-

利申我係2017/18 Sem B take, 但呢度得2016/17 Sem B揀。

同大家一樣都覺得Jason係一個幾nice嘅as a person, 但nice又唔代表好嘅as a professor。

midterm + final: 大家可以無視平時上堂既notes, jason會擺一大堆notes上canvas, 但midterm同final前佢會開個新folder, 入面會有四個files左右, 你只需要溫果四份notes就可以考試接近滿分。midterm同final都只會得4-5條好簡單既short questions。

project先係最大嘅問題。一開sem, Jason叫我地自己搵題目, 當時堂都未上, 真係唔知有咩揀。send email去consult佢, 原來佢一早有既定既topic想我地揀, 咁我係無問題嘅 (我知好多人會想做自己揀嘅題目, 但sorry, 呢科係有篩選嘅普選)。基本上全班都係做walkability, Jason send出黎嘅emails都多數係關walkability事。project內容係去諗點樣improve香港既walkability, 學生要做嘅就係去香港十幾條行人路數人數, 呢一part都幾time-consuming, 之後suggest要唔要喺foot paths度加cover。

其實一個咁易做嘅project, 基本上全班嘅內容都係大同小異, 換言之midterm, final, project都係分唔到高下嘅。要記住, reg得呢班嘅人好多都係想拎A+, 因為Jason一開始講到明會俾A+同A, 大家都好Chur。

呢個project嘅問題係, Jason應該係今年先諗咁樣design個project, 搞到當中好多細節佢都係即興諗出黎。一開始又叫我地要conduct一份survey, 之後又話唔洗, 之後又話要, 佢話佢會design埋survey俾我地, 點知present前兩日佢先同我地講: 「我都係覺得你地自己design會好d, 因為咁先分到高下。」利申, 我今個sem讀18 cred嘅, 如果科科個professor都咁即興, 我真係一日有四十八小時都唔掂。

individual assignment:
你主要係要講吓你會點做個project, 去到交assignment時, 我諗jason都唔太知自己想個project點樣, 咁所以呢份野都係亂吹, 總之你份野睇落正正常常都唔會太差。

extra points:
呢科野有趣嘅地方在於Jason喺week13時announce一樣野: 大家可以幫佢做count人數黎gain extra points! (應該係因為佢有research需要) 注意返, Jason會叫大家考緊final時去幫佢count人數, 意思係你要出某幾條foot paths度, 每條企一個鐘, 數吓有一個鐘有幾多人行過。你幫佢做就有extra points。我自己就有六個final exams, 如果真係幫佢做埋, 我諗就算呢科A+都無鬼用, gpa一定爛。所以呢, 我果組係無做嘅, 而唔知extra points同grade嘅關係大唔大, 我成group大部分人都係A-!

同埋我自己都覺得咁樣幾唔公平, 一個course考核嘅本應係一個學生各方面嘅能力同知識, 而唔係講緊你肯唔肯時間去幫professor做research/extra work which may be irrelevant to knowledge itself (can you learn anything by doing pedestrian count? obviously no) 即使呢幾分Extra points係佔一個course嘅好小部份, 我都認為唔應該出現。

呢科野係靚grade嘅, 但如果求first hon/A+/A嘅人就自己諗諗佢喇。

Jason:
我覺得佢係一個好有知識嘅人, 畢竟佢喺urban planning呢行工作過, 而且亦識好多行內嘅人, 例如我地上堂曾經有guest speaker黎講吓urban planning實際係點做。佢亦講過自己會去McKinsey (三大consulting firms之一) present, 俾左好多presentation slides我地學野。如果你真係好想學關於urban planning嘅知識, 呢科十足適合你, 佢有時間嘅話都好願意share更多 (不過most of the time佢係無時間嘅)。仲有, 如果大家係好鍾意consult professor project嘅人, sorry, 佢唔岩你, 每次佢都係深夜四五點先會覆email, 或者隔幾日, 佢一日到黑都好BUSYYYY嘅。不過佢態度真係好, 唔會有種「我係professor, 唔得閒答你d垃圾問題」嘅感覺。
