Reviews and tips for EDUC105

lectures are dreary and content is dry, assessments harder than expected, lecturer talks unbelievably slowly. interesting though, tutors are awesome.

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.

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.

The psychology units for Education get better, trust me. This is really good for foundational knowledge but caters largely to early childhood development and primary school. So, if you're only interested in high school kids it's definitely not too fascinating.

Foundations, foundations, foundations. You may be driven mad by the amount of rote that is actually involved. A pile of unpalatable theorist, theories, and perspectives fed to you on a spoon to somehow digest. I tip my hat to W. Leahy (Lecturer/Convener) for adding the flavour that carried me through. The assessments are an easy D/HD, unfortunately. If everyone does well, no-one does well and we all go home with randomly allocated grades that don't reflect effort. But, as far as core requisites go this one was a dream.
