It's the time of the semester when the students are given the chance to grade their teachers. wahahaha~ I like doing this Student Feedback Exercise because I've nothing better to do.
Before you start to think this is the most fun thing, please remember that this is not anonymous at all. I don't know how NUS goes about doing this, but I strongly believe that in NUS, nothing that a student does can be anonymous because BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING. yea... It's that scary, but what to do, as one of my profs once said, "NUS is a microcosm of Singapore". I like his analogy, and I always quote him when talking about NUS. It's a pity that he has left NUS already, but well, of course he'd leave what, but it's also a pity that sometimes because of some stuff going on, some good people have no choice but to want to search for a better working environment. Money can only bring us this far, it cannot bring us all the way. For NUS to become a top global school, it needs to do more than to attract good teachers over with cash incentives, but need to provide them with an enjoyable working condition.
I just did mine. One reason that I did it was for the stupid CORS points.
Show you guys some stuff I did for my feedback exercise.
This is the first time I've graded a teacher that badly, but yes, I do not enjoy his lessons at all. Oops... Now, I've narrowed down the gender of the teacher, we all know that he can only be three of my other modules. lol~
Really, nothing much will come out of this exercise, no teacher will be sacked because of incompetency, or any other reason, so it's just for the statistics. Or maybe sometimes, when there's really a whole lot of complaints then maybe some action will be done. I think some other profs once told be that if the feedback is good, there might be bonuses for them. erm... Okay, I sure don't wish that that guy above should get any bonus. In fact, I think if he could do that module then every single student can also do that module too, do as in teach. bahaha~
Of course, I'm not that all a mean person and goes to condemn every single teacher. The other teachers all got very glowing feedbacks from me. And very constructive comments too.
Like this one.
A very constructive comment, right?
Even if I don't put this up on my blog I think the person would know who gave this comment even without the feedback not being anonymous. erm... I just realised that the above sentence doesn't make sense. Okay, Even if this is an anonymous feedback, even if I didn't put this up in my blog, the prof who received this feedback can guess that it was me who gave this comment. Does this sound more coherent? hahaha... And it's also very obvious who this comment was directed to, right? wahaha~
Some more constructive comments~
I can be nice too, you know~
Yea, it's also very obvious who these comments were directed to. There's only once prof in the entire school that "cute" can be used to describe her. Sometimes I think that the way she looks, the way she carries herself, the way she dresses, she can pass off for a student lor. I'm so damn jealous. wahaha~
Then as again, with the past semesters (except the last when I was on exchange), I nominated that that that guy for the outstanding educator award thingie. I've been nominating him for like five semesters already and he like never win like that leh... wah kau... Actually there are a lot of people I want to nominate every semester but can only nominate one person. hai... If can nominate more people, I'd really want to nominate Dr Edna Lim and Frau Niemann too. I think they were damn good this semester.
Anyway, I've already submitted the feedback so I can't make changes now. Good luck to all my profs, except for that one I do not like, okay, it's not him personally, but more of the module and the setting of the module and the background of everything that I really hate.
One totally irrelevant thing.
I realised that there's this guy in one of my project group this semester has been in one of my classes for every semester (except when I was pn exchange). From my sem I to this sem, every semester, in my class, and the classes ranged from PS to SE to HY classes. Okay, since it's only four classes, so that makes it one PS (1101E)in my first semester, one SE (1101E) in my second semester, he was in my tutorials somemore lor. Then there's Total War in my sem III, there's no tutorials for that class, but this sem, he's in my War and Society, tutorial group again. wahaha...
Okay, my main point is that, after him being in like all my classes and tuts every semester, I"VE NEVER NOTICED HIM BEFORE. This is damn sad sia. You'd think that I'd notice some familiar faces about, but no lor, I don't know why I've never noticed him before lor. At first when he said he was in my class before I thought it was only in Total War, then he went on saying that he was in my tutorial for SE1101E. Okay, that wasn't that bad if I try to think hard and recall, then he said he was in my PS1101E tutorial. wah lau... No matter how much I try and think and recall, I cannot remember him in there at all lor.
I am so damn paiseh.
