I have been a university student (as well as a full time employee) for over ten years. Aimee is hands-down the best lecturer I have had the opportunity to meet and teach me. She is everything a lecturer should be and more; she is real.
Unfortunately, the above people commenting have only completed a first semester, first year course, and you are all in for a big surprise if you look at continuing tertiary education because you will e exposed to some very 'interesting' lecturers. And if you can't even make it to lectures in your first year, then beat of luck to you...
Again, kudos to Aimee. She is extremely knowledgeable and personable. UQ is very lucky to have her.
I'm going to have to disagree with the previous rating here.....I feel like the lectures were little more than an excuse for this woman to talk about herself and her life....and then she wondered why attendance plummeted. Then she got super petty and stopped recording lectures as 'punishment' with 0 consideration for students on disability plans and students with timetable clashes...and students who'd rather not spend 90 minutes hearing 80 minutes of her life story to get the 10minutes of actual content.
While I didn't enjoy taking COMU1010 because of the boring subject matter (one of those awful core courses you need to be able to do your major), this was is no way the fault of Aimee who was a really interesting and engaging lecturer who did her absolute best to make the dry course content as interesting as possible. She was very approachable and helpful if you needed anything and an extremely prompt responder to emails if you needed assistance. She was also very organised with getting things onto blackboard. She was the one bright spot in a very very boring and tedious course.
Which course did you take? (e.g. MGTS1301)
Approachable and willing to help.
Interesting and funny lecturer with a gift for making boring concepts somewhat interesting.
