well, there's this issue rising about "MACRO LECTURER" and create a big argument between people in the class. Some of them were STRONGLY agree that the lecturer can not teach and some are just feel they clicked with the way she taught. The one who really can not understand finally go and complain to admin. we pay SO MUCH money for a GOOD FACILITIES and QUALIFIED LECTURERS. so, of course, complain is one of the way. Well, I don't know why some of people in the class that feel macro lecturer can teach just hated people who go and complain? They just seek for what they deserve. I should agree with them though that compared to Mr. Tan, our previous teacher, the current macro lecturer teaching skill is far beyond him. I prefer No Thumb of course :)
People has started to blog about this issue, some of them telling the story in a good way, some of them just way too harsh. Some just trying to be funny and add some 'sarcastic' joke into it. Why should this PRO and CONS blogging started now??? I mean, don't you feel NOT ONLY this teacher can not teach? like... maths teacher for example? TQM teacher? they read every word flashed on the screen. Most of the students in class C agree that maths teacher can't teach and some of them clicked too? But it didn't create such argument like this? What makes the difference? Why people now talking abt people who complain abt the teacher? Is it because they like how she teach? or they are just looking for a 'pass' grade? or they don't mind who teach, anywae they can study themselves and no need to attend class? I'm an international student and schooling here is not easy. I'm not only looking for a C... I want As and Bs. I have to attend classes in order to understand the lectures. I pay hell lots of money to get a QUALIFIED teachers.
I'm quiet disappointed though that SIM provide such not-up-to-standard lecturers PLUS out batch is the first new batch under Uni SIM and we're the guinea pigs! The issue about macro lecturer is just because they wanna test if lecturers really can teach! You see... how many SAME lecturers that the 18th intake and above have like us? They just want to see if they are really qualified!!!! :(
I also think there's a BIG misunderstanding for the GIRLS who left the lecture on the day admin did the voting. we left coz we want to do project. we don't know that the admin was coming... we don't have six sense, duh?! we were not trying to escape! Do you think complaining abt the lecturer is some kind of joke? NO! coz we really need teacher who can TEACH, GIVE EXAMPLES PROPERLY and ANSWER to student's QUESTIONS correctly.
I hope the readers got what I mean. I don't hate macro lecturer. I don't blame her if I didn't get A... it's all up to me. to STUDY or NOT to STUDY. there's NO WAY you can get good result if you don't struggle yourself. teacher are just here to help you understand better, not make things worst.
and I really wanna ask WHY international students and local students are treated differently? it's so unfair that international students MUST take econs bridging program NO MATTER what. I asked 'what if a singaporean failed his/her econs in DMS or scored a D??" answer:"it's not compulsory for them to take" ... we have struggled to score as high as possible for econs and they don't even consider our score? MONEY MONEY MONEY. all they think is money. damn. so unfair. the world is just unfair. huh~
