Saha presented ELEC2003 delivered elec2003 as a course with both a decent amount of content and opportunity to practice the methods. He gave me a solid foundation to build the rest of my electrical engineering off of.
Which course did you take? (e.g. MGTS1301)
Invested in the students and engages in the lectures
Focuses on core concepts to avoid leaving students confused
Well to start with teaching he explained the idea very well but when you ask.. He delt with it in a nasty way.. Which discourage anyone to do it again.. He just rushed to finish the curriculum and didn't care if you understand it or not
Tapan was a typically researcher which had little to no communication skills. Although he was generally good at conveying the ideas within lectures and presented them in an interesting way he would constantly leave remarks after peoples questions indicating that he is of superior intelligence and that the work we are doing is "easy". Things such as "You should know that", "You tell me" after students ask questions led to a feeling of uneasiness within the cohort. Students felt like they could not ask questions. He would constantly refer to the work he did as harder than the course we are doing (which it is but who says that?). He generally didnt show he care in the slightest about the outcome of his students on a personal level but rather how his course's bell curve looked as a whole. He focused more on teaching, lecturing and prepared for final exams, which was good, but was still left with a bad feeling about the course due to his personal nature.
Dr Saha would try to ease the tension and break the ice during his lectures often joking around a lot, which was funny but not quite for the reason Dr Saha believed. His humour is a little awkward, and though he encourages student input during his lecturing he would answer sarcastically or be fairly blunt - it was off-putting. This is all minor though, he otherwise seemed happy to help but the biggest issue was that he used the whiteboard to do examples in a huge lecture theatre. It was impossible to see the whiteboard if you weren't in the first few rows, especially since he writes quite small on it.
He would attend the tutorials to help out which was great, but he still had that off-putting feeling as he worked through tutorials. He was a little (perhaps jokingly) aggressive which made him unapproachable.
Great electrical lecturer. Explains things very clearly and provides awesome resources before each lecture which make it very easy to concentrate during a lecture (even between 4-6 on a wednesday afternoon)!
Also makes a huge effort to make it to all tutes even when he doesn't have to
Dr Saha is not a very approachable, borderline scary/mean, lecturer. Although he tries to encourage questions in lectures, any questions are delt with in a nasty way, discouraging any further questions. His accent makes it a little difficult to understand him sometimes, and he rushes though examples. He doesn't believe in breaks during his 2 hour lectures. At least he tries, but he isn't a very good lecturer.
