I have had Ian as a lecturer for two courses (ECON2030 and ECON7760) and he was amazing for both. He is extremely knowledgeable about economics and uses a lot of interesting real-life examples to add clarity and application. He also insists on students participating in class discussions and asking/answering questions, which some students can find confronting, but it really helps with being able to understand the subject matter. He also rewards prizes for people who answer tough questions correctly in class, or ask him interesting analytical questions. Overall, I highly recommend taking any course where Ian is the lecturer - if you put the effort into attending his lectures, Ian makes it very easy to understand the course and get a good grade.
Never thought not go to his lecture. Very thankful for taking a lot time answering every student's questions after lecture. The class is also highly participative, he threw out questions in class which helped me to think deeper and more critical.
Which course did you take? (e.g. MGTS1301)
spend time answering students' question after lecture
By far the best teacher I have ever had. Every lecture was like a comedy class. He was also very helpful and motivated. While all the other lectures wears shirts in class, Ian loves his shorts. He does not look like a profesor, but more like a 35 year old dad. This daddy picture becomes more clearly with every daddy joke he says during the lectures. If you want a funny lecture who is really helpful, I would recommend Ian.
ian is the worst lecturer i have had the displeasure of dealing with. horrible at explaining key concepts and examines material not covered in lectures to purposely throw students off - this has been self-professed by the man himself. he can be incredibly offensive at times throughout lectures.
