You know the stereotypical history teacher who manages to be intensely boring while describing long and bloody wars? Well, at least he was probably helpful and an objective marker under his paralyzingly boring lecture style.
This is an incredibly interesting subject, taught in a really muddled and unhelpful way. Because there is virtually no clarity as to what Diane is looking for in assessment, it's nearly impossible to do well. As a result, this subject single-handedly dragged down my GPA. She is often late to class, only responds to emails that aren't directly relevant to the subject material, and her feedback is appallingly unhelpful and completely subjective. She is a hard marker, and pieces of work that other (read: more competent and more interesting) lecturers would have graded far higher, she barely passes.
The best aspect of this course were the tutorials, but when the most enjoyable aspect of the course is only worth 10%, the subject is not worth doing. She was unhelpful when it mattered, and clarity was virtually non-existent. She expects assessment to reflect something very specific, but she never explains enough for it to be comprehensible. Resultantly, unless you're psychic, you're probably not going to do very well.
If you want to take an interesting subject with a boring, unhelpful and confusing lecturer that will destroy your 6.25 average, by all means, take this one.
