PSYC2030 – Developmental Psychology 80.7

Very interesting course. Depends on what you are interested in personally. Easy course work, my tutor April Hoang evidently cared about the course and her students. Made tutorials fun and open to discussion. Actually took this course in semester 1, 2018.

Really, really interesting course. Maybe my favourite so far. Make sure you consult your tutor about the assignment: it was marked very, very harshly. I enjoyed attending the lectures as well as the tutorials. In tutorials, you get to chat about the weekly readings (which are generally quite interesting, and if you want to, you can just skim over them) and the previous lecture. The quizzes are really, really easy. If you put in a bit of effort, you will quite easily achieve at least a 6, and learn a lot of interesting content along the way :)

Course content is extremely interesting but too bad it is delivered in a way that makes it extremely boring.

There are too many guest lecturers, one of which only seemed to be there in order to prompt herself.

The biggest negative is the lack of support, none of the tutors were supportive and they offered no consultations for essay help. Whereas all of the other second year courses provide exceptional assessment support.

Semi-interesting course. Fairly basic human development information. Weirdly structured too. Tutorials absolutely dead boring - watching stupid youtube videos and whatnot. Essay assignment was marked quite harshly, but exam was dead easy. Pay attention, learn the terms and definitions, easy 7.
