Reviews and tips for ARTS1090

Abstract course with a lot of theory. The theories are interesting but I got so ceebs studying for it throughout the sem, it can get pretty dry. Had an ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE tutor, but ended up doing well by relying on the lectures (just watch them online so you can make extensive notes and take the time to understand the core concepts). Everything the lecturer talks about is relevant and he includes really useful real world examples. Remember he's the one sets the assessments and final exam so everything he says is important. Also the tutorial blogs are not leniently marked (you won't get any feedback throughout the sem on these so you won't know if you're doing well or not until the end), and whilst you will find past blogs on the internet for ARTS1090 - most of them are not good on their own lol so I recommend to 1. use these for reference, and then 2. watch the lecture and make extensive notes, then go to writing the blog, which will be easy by this point, then 3. read at least one of the articles and relate it to the relevant issues highlighted in the lecture (lecturer will refer to an important point from the prescribed articles anyway)

This course is awful as a core for media students. The assignments definitely need an update particularly the blog which is pretty much touch and go because you get no feedback or tips on how to write it. Just in general I found the subjects discussed a little useless and it's difficult to know how to go about writing them

lecturer is good, subject is stupid.....

I agree, the subject is silly, and the lectures are a regurgitation of the readings. Tutorials are most helpful in studying for the final exams as they are filled with other peoples points of views and these are sometimes better in writing your critical anaysises for exams/assignments
