2019/20 Summer


差唔多全部野都同佛教有關,同科學無關。個tutor癡迷佛教,唔上堂就突然send email過黎話自己要開會......交齊功課,上曬堂都係攞c,無語。

workload一般,每個星期有一份 2 A4 page 長Assignment。
但分數比得相對緊,好難攞A range。
aim A range的人千奇唔好㨂。

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.

Professor 反口,話會出每份Assignment既分數,最後出左Grade,但個細分都仲未出。明明宗教係好個人既諗法,但夠膽死拉curve拉得咁harsh,harsh得黎又唔肯比feedback我地既功課,削弱我地學習既成果。
極認真讀都係咁既Grade,係教得幾好,學到好多野,發人深省。但值唔值得為左學野讀一科Median Grade係B-既GE就見人見智。

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.
