Why this petition matters
Students feel that they are left behind for the BDQ470S subject as the lecturer has not heard our pleas. We would like to see a positive change when it comes to this subject as many students are struggling.
In summary, what we need is:
1. A tutor to help learn/understand the work or a different lecturer entirely,
2. Tutorial(s) to help boost our mark,
3. The correct learning materials- the memos and drawings do not talk to each other. There is also drawings and memos that are missing. We were advised in a lecture to screenshot the drawing from the lecture and use it - this is not practical as we need to have our drawings scaled, and
4. To have our exam date moved back so that we may have time to self study/try and understand the work.
Our current lecturer has technical issues for most of the lecture which makes it unproductive and difficult to follow along. We do not have the correct drawings and memos. It was also advised by the class rep that the lecturer send the notes a day or two before the lecture but that has not happened. We also have not been provided with a study guide.
There is also concern as to why we need to pay the full tuition fees when we ask our lecturers to do their job, only for our pleas to fall on deaf ears.
We understand that this is a struggle for everyone but we are struggling with this subject. The lectures are unproductive and we aren’t even able to learn the material on our own due to the lack of proper resources. It is unprofessional, demotivating and demoralising, to say the least.
