PSYC2063 – Psychological Approaches to Complex Problems54.3
This course was extremely interesting content wise and Bill is an entertaining lecturer. The quizzes were challenging and though-provoking. However, the assignment was particularly horrible. To write the assignment well, it is essential to have some third year psychology statistics knowledge which we were not prepared for at all as this is a second year psych subject. As this course is not a statistics course, they lecturer and tutors did not explain the required statistics knowledge (or SPSS knowledge) well, while still expecting us to justify our statistical decisions in the assignment. If this course was completed AFTER the cohort had completed third-year statistics, I believe it would be a lot more beneficial for students.

This was easily the best psych subject I've ever taken. Bill Von Hippel is an engaging, funny, and intelligent lecturer, and the tutors were very helpful too. This was not an easy course, but it really forced you to apply yourself the whole way through semester. I am continually grateful for all I learnt during this course, and for Bill who decided to challenge everyone instead of simply waving us through the course.

This course was extremely different from your average psychology course. Rather than covering content it attempts to alter your ways of thinking and give you a new perspective on problem-solving. The weekly quizzes are difficult, covering content from the readings, tutorials and lectures. They certainly challenge you. The lectures are very engaging and the tutors were all fantastic.
