Ok I am currently doing this unit and by far THE WORST AND MOST DISORGANISED UNIT in my marketing major. AND YES, I am a marketing major who must take this unit due to lack of level 3 marketing units in semester 1. I think UWA marketing needs to fix this issue. I don't know what I am doing in this unit. The unit coordinator is not responsive and very little support is provided for online students (I know most units are like this, but this unit is worse). Assessments are unclear and the 'tutorials' are a mess. Maybe as time goes by I will come to tolerate this unit, but for now, I will give it a 1 star. I will delete and write another review by the end of this unit if things are getting better, but I can see that it is unlikely.

DO NOT TAKE THIS UNIT. This was a core unit for me so I had no choice but to take the unit but if you can avoid taking this unit, please do! It was incredibly disorganised and convoluted from the get-go. There seemed to be no communication or co-ordination between the unit co-ordinator and tutors whatsoever. This meant that our tutorial sessions (which were called 'consultancy' sessions) included getting the same feedback over and over again as our ‘consultant’ (tutor or unit coordination present during the tutorial) would change from week to week. No disrespect intended toward the tutors or their entrepreneurial skills; however, their tutoring skills were subpar (I do think this had to do with the general lack of direction for the entire unit, they didn’t have much to work with). The actual content of the unit is also delivered strangely. The unit co-ordinator has uploaded youtube videos and you have to watch around 2 each week. You also have to attend a workshop which covers the exact content that was covered in the youtube videos just with an added example. It is very inefficient and disengaging. The worst part by far was the lack of direction provided for the actual assessment pieces and that the majority consists of group work. 2 people in our group did no work and there was not even a peer review mechanism. We emailed the unit co-ordinator and received no reply, we then emailed our tutor and her pretty much told us to get on with it. Tutors could not answer a single question students would ask about the assessments and they would always say that the unit co-ordinator would cover it but he rarely clarified anything. My point it do not take this unit unless you want to suffer.
