Awful course. I took it under Dr. Glenys McGowan and it was boring. The lectures weren't recorded, so attending was mandatory. Some random academic marked the written assignments and marked very unfairly, so good luck if someone outside marks them. So many readings. Only good thing was Glenys, she tried to make it better but it was a train wreck anyway. A better archaeologist might be more interested in Australian archaeology but I am not so this review may be biased.
I actually took the course semester 1 - 2015 but wasn't able to select it.
I took this course under Dr Tiina Mann, who is a wonderful lecturer. The course content was interesting and presented in a way that stimulated class discussion. Lectures were recorded and notes made available on Blackboard, however the 'tutorial' section after the lecture was worth attending because we used the lab and museum for real world examples and artefact analysis. Assessment was straightforward (an essay and a report), with a comprehensive exam (multiple choice and short answer). The readings were interesting and not too full on (mostly accessible online).
