Reviews and tips for EDUC105

Very interesting content. I felt that the major essay word count was far too low to go into enough depth on such a broad essay question. Be warned, the work is easy, but the assessments and markers are tough! They do not give charity points or any easy marks - even for a first year subject. Overall a very enjoyable and engaging glimpse into child development and classroom applications of theory.

The lecturer's delivery was engaging, but the content of this unit can sometimes be a little overwhelming. LOTS of theories to remember. However, if you happen to underperform in the essay, you can easily make up for it in the final exam. The long response questions are pretty much the same every year, so you can write an essay beforehand for the exam :)

Holy crap, this subject is bad. The lecturer is so dreary and speaks too slowly, and also made me feel like I'm living in a police state with all the warnings in capitals on plagiarism. The content is okay, but theres way too many theorists and theories, and only a handful will come up on the exam. And some of them aren't even in the textbook which is stupid. And here is the worst bit. As for knowing in reality, how well you did in the assessments, well, you're better off dead than guessing, because all you get is a letter grade for each assessment. Without any indication of if you're closer to the bottom or the top of that grade boundary. Really not good for knowing how well you are doing. The final exam was also quite irritating.

Some lectures were very interesting whereas others I would be forcing myself to stay awake. Make sure you get the textbook AND READ IT!!! The lectures/ slides have next to no information in them so you will need to have read the textbook to write extended response answers well. Markers are pretty harsh on the major essay too, it almost seemed as if the content was too simple for them to have as a uni course without being super harsh on writing skills to compensate. But on the up side, the final exam is pretty much exactly the same every year so look at a few past papers and you will do fine.
