I can only blame him for how trash he made the course. Comes to class with a tonne of diagrams talks about them as if we have a PhD in those diagrams, by the time you start to understand the diagrams you forget what he was saying about them and he changes the slide. After the mid sem he comes with the hardest questions on the exam (the ones people had most trouble with) and goes through each before you can even take up your pencil.
Honestly one of the best lecturers I've ever had. The amount of effort Peter puts into teaching is absolutely extraordinary. He puts on extra review lectures during swotvac which are recorded, he actively responds to questions on piazza, and be explains concepts well. He also makes sure to put in real work (©) examples wherever possible (eg. He uses Intel chips ad examples alot).
The way the course is set out is amazing even, with learning labs beinf incredibly helpful. Not to mention how much work it would be write base code for a project that a bunch of Sexond hears can understand and use.
Even posting the median and mean if quizzes and the distribution of marks so quickly after assesment is amazing.
He is a bit boring to listen to sometimes, but I think that's also partially the course content.
Peter Sutton runs the best course at UQ and deserves to be known as one of the best lecturers/course coordinators.
God knows how this guy is one of the best rated lecturers at UQ, CSSE2010 is a reasonably interesting course, but it's really different to actually sustain any amount of focus during his lectures because of just how monotonous and dull his voice is. He comes around to the pracs and helps out, which is great, but listening to him talk about what registers do what for 50 minutes at a time will drive you nuts. Bonus is that because of how slow he is, you can watch the recordings at double speed on the Sunday night before the quiz is due.
Peter Sutton is one of the two best lecturers at UQ (the other one is poh) in my opinion. He is also one of the very few lecturers who not only excel in their area of study, but can also explain relevant concepts clearly to students as well. Peter's lectures are a pleasure to attend (even tho i didnt go to many due to the poor lecture timing), he will make the most boring material come to life.
Peter Sutton is by far the most well prepared, knowledge and enthusiastic lecturer I have ever had the pleasure of encountering at University. His articulation of course content is so preceise and clear that I found myself not only learning, but also enjoying myself during the co-horts collective time with him.
His input into CSSE2310 was a very welcome break from the usual personality of Dr Joel Fenwick.
This Prof is great, he understands people, and can explain concepts really well.
He puts in the maximum amount of effort, is classes are well thought out, and through.
He understands that not all students attend lectures, and records lectures, he uses a stylist also, so anything he writes down is recorded on the slide.
This Prof learning materials are extensive, and deep. You will learn from Peter!
Best lecturer I've ever had. Super hard working, answers student questions at all hours, provides superb course learning material, proportionately challenging assignments.
This man made me the programmer I am today.
Peter Sutton is the best lecturer I've ever had and I've been at uni 5+ years. He does everything right. He works very hard and it shows in his course preparation. CSSE2010 was a challenging course with tough material but Peter's teaching made it enjoyable, interesting and achievable.
Reliably arrived on time and delivered content in an engaging manner, always taking time to gauge the classes understanding of new material. The experience was enhanced by his pristine white trousers and soothing voice.
The best UQ Lecturer I've had. Punctual, smart, easy to understand; this guy was born to lecture. He seems like a humble guy. I can tell from his voice. Honestly though, he has a knack for producing the perfect analogies, teaching the core of a concept without any padding, being confident in his knowledge and just being able to portray information super efficiently. You can see the guy enjoys the subject too despite his slightly monotonic voice. He's very accommodating to students, always updates them about any changes to anything including his office availability. Lastly and possibly most importantly, the dude pumps out sample/practice/learning materials like a machine. He will gather everything useful and collate it faster than Google and throw it onto Blackboard. It's a godsend near SWOTVAC.
Excellent lecturer, the best I have had. He has always made himself available to tend to the needs of students. His teaching style during lectures is awesome always travels at a steady pace and delivers the course content in such a simple way it appears simple. He is routinely on blackboard giving announcements of due assessment and general course feedback. Marks are almost immediate for every piece of assessment I did with him. All learning content is always made available with extras being included on difficult topics. He seems to have an endless amount of knowledge about CSSE related topics instead of just teaching what he is just meant to be taught he links into further courses that can be taken. I wish he did more courses as I thoroughly enjoyed learning from him.
Incredible lecturer. He just teaches everything very well and the lecture structures are consistent, easy to follow and concise. He does small examples during the lecturers on the slides, does clicker questions and explains the answers to those well, answers all questions that may not be strictly related to the course but still very interesting. His lecture slides are always available both unaltered and with the connotations from the lectures.
His lectures are refreshing, 10/10.
Probably the best lecturer/course coordinator/person at UQ.
Taught the content extremely well with his clean cut, systematic approach to teaching.
Coding and organisational skills that border on the supernatural.
All resources and code posted to blackboard very soon after the lecture.
