Course :
個人覺得呢個Course取向好interesting同實用,整個Course全程模擬你係一間Engineering firm裡面的Engineer,負責緊一個Product,然後模擬下真實工作環境會遇到的事 (開Meeting,寫Email,Sell products等等),雖然內容係可以料想到的事感覺幾「行」,但會令你注意返一D細節,例如措辭用字 (你仲可以Explain你的思路同措辭 in assignment 4)、或者一D Presentation skills。

Workload and Weighting:
同前面2014-2015 Sem A的留言一樣,6份Assignments,Weighting一樣 (會有本Booklet寫得好清楚)。睇落去有D多,但做落唔太難,Workload唔算大。個人覺得最難應該係Digest D資料,雖然Topics同做到幾深入都係自己決定,但可能未接觸過,揾資料果時會比較難明。不過6份Assignments基本上全部圍繞同一個Topic,所以揾資料捱一次、揾夠就冇太大難度,我Assignment 2果時揾完資料,後期幾乎唔使再揾就可以直接開工。

Tutor :
Kevin 係一個好中意飲Coffee (XD) 的Great tutor (每次放Break都捕捉到佢去AC1到買Coffee XD),放Break放好長,然後俾好多時間你去答一D好簡單的問題,經常性好早放,人好Nice唔會好嚴肅 / Force你答問題 (最多叫一組答一個問題),上佢堂可以話係非常輕鬆到近乎Hea,氣氛好好。雖然氣氛Hea但Kevin好有耐性答大家的問題,會體諒大家可能唔明而係咁問野,雖然同一條問題可能答過好多次,但都會一次又一次咁重複解釋到大家明為至,好好人,而且好開通,有時D assignment setting唔太合理,佢都會出聲話佢覺得有問題 (Or你可以出聲,佢覺得合理會接受),然後會接受大家如果係果D點上做得冇咁好,將重點放係佢覺得重要既位到。比分都幾手鬆,雖然我B左,但Assignment到佢俾的分數唔低,我Present緊張講到一舊舊佢都冇比我好低分,Final result我諗係拉Curve、唔太關Kevin、或者其他Tutor事。
(Bonus:Kevin係外國人,雖然唔識聽中文,但英文D Accent好好聽好清楚)

Colin is a relatively young tutor. I really enjoy his lessons as he is very funny, lively, and sociable. I have learnt a lot from him. Also, for the workload, the course has its own designated assignment, so each tutor will most likely give the same amount of work. Personally, I do not find the workload too heavy.

Moving on to the assignment part, I will talk about them starting from individual and will move on to group.

The main individual assignments include Progress report, Email and Meta-reflection. These assignments are relatively straightforward and you can ask Colin for some tips. However, I highly recommend you to book a session at ELC.

Next is the group assignments. I was very lucky since I had very hardworking and kind groupmates. For both the seminar and meeting, due to me being a native speaker, I was able to attain nearly full marks. If you can, try not to prepare script for these two assignments because it can seem very unnatural and you may lose many marks. Apart from that, the group mark, just coordinate well with your groupmates and have your team leader be the flow keeper (just like having an emcee) and you should be able to get near full marks.

Overall, I have greatly enjoyed this course and I highly recommend Colin! In spite of English being my mother tongue, I was still able to learn a lot from this course.

就如其他同學咁講,佢係一個好nice ge tutor
上堂算係輕鬆,assignments可以send email比佢睇左先,比分我覺得都算鬆手,拎到B+我都好satisfy

Thank you Ms. Lauw for all the teaching. I really enjoyed (:
And to whoever is reading this page,
That workload part above is really subjective, whoever the lecturer is the assessed tasks and their grading distribution are fixed anyway.
I have to raise some points though, that Ms. Lauw does recognise your effort and is willing to help when you encounter difficulties. Just make sure you ask questions regarding the assignment and submit your drafts before the given date for draft submission. Make changes and progresses based on the corrections. Oh and one last thing, although things can still be independently managed, teamwork really helps. Cheers!

Good and nice lecturer
she is welcome if you want to send the drafts before the submission of the written assignements

2014/15 Sem A

Assessed Tasks:
15% Progress Report (Individual)
15% Seminar (5% Group 10% Individual)
10% Email (Individual)
10% Meta-reflection (Individual)
20% Blueprint (5% Group 15% Individual)
20% Meeting (5% Group 15% Individual)
10% Class Participation (Individual)

開學果陣會分組, 3 - 4 人一組
(個人 Prefer 4 個一組, 因為 3 個人既一組係要做夠 4 個人一組既份量)
做既野同以往差唔多, 唯讀今年 English dept 轉左計分方法
Blueprint 由原本計 group mark, 變成計 15% Individual 同埋 5% Group Mark

Jon 幾好人, 教書唔錯, 有問題佢都可以答到你
但係唔好走堂, 因為佢認人好勁
同埋上得佢堂, 就要預左上足冇得早放
(不過佢放一個 break 可以放好耐, 夠你食埋早餐都仲得)

要拎 A Range 既話, 除非你每份 Assignment 都有 85% 或者以上
否則, 千祈唔好對呢科 D grade 有太大期望
由於自己英文唔太好, 所以拎 B 都收貨

一個好好既miss 好nice好盡責仲會請我地食野
交功課之前交既draft佢真係會用心睇用心改
只要跟足黎做就唔會差得去邊
主要係揀project既題目要小心d唔好簡d太難

Heavy workload
I think Colin is a good teacher
He is helpful. You can seek help from him when doing assignment.
He will give you some useful comments.
But, to be honest, it is not easy to get A grade from him

都唔知係我黑仔定係點,全體佢教既都被降左一個GRADE!都唔知DEPT搞乜鬼,SEAFOOD痕咩,拎學生D分黎好似當泥沙咁玩!

整個course要分組, 大約三至四人一組, 分group 和 individual work
individual 要做有一份幾百字的 progress report,150字內 email 和 幾百字 reflection.
group 要做 present 去 introduce 你個 idea 俾你 potential clients, 按 client 要求 design 一份 blue print, 同埋要同另外一組開一個 meeting
d task 唔係太多同埋唔係太難,只要 group mates
肯做野
Jon 俾分都算鬆手, 全班大多數都係 B或 B+

Prof.真係好好人,Email好快覆,仲成日請我地食野
比Grade唔緊手,但亦都唔算鬆手:
AT1: B+
AT2: B+
AT3: B+
AT4: A-
AT5: B+
上面係佢比既Grade,不過EN Department經常性都會內部調整分數,
加甘自問自己英文都唔係好,所以B都收貨。
