Quality of Corporate Reporting and Global Accounting Lecturer - Mr Wilson Aw
1. We, the students of Mr Wilson Aw, feel inadequately prepared for the examinations, and that we have yet acquired sufficient knowledge of the module, and do not have the confidence in attempting the examinations. 2. Additional lesson that was meant for our tutorial questions that was promised to the entire class to be held last Wednesday, 9 March 2011, which did not take place, and that we were informed last minute (Monday, 7 March 2011) that it was due to us, the students, not writing into the school through the “proper procedures” and that lecturers do not have the ‘right’ to offer additional lessons. Thus, he did not confirm the additional lesson, which he promised. This was not in line with our understanding that he would speak to the school directly and have that lesson arranged. 3. No feedback was sought from our class, neither was there a proper explanation about the immediate dismissal of Johnson Yang, which caused confusion among the students. 4. When we suggested for a ‘bridging’ class to consolidate the lessons and subjects taught, we were turned down by Mr Wilson Aw. 5. No clear direction on how the varied teaching styles were to be ‘bridged’, or attempts to fill the gaps of confusion for understanding the contents taught. 6. The lecturer was inconsistent with the requirement of reference books. In Mr Aw’s first lesson, students enquired if the recommended textbooks were required for the subject, and we were informed that his course notes would be sufficient, and that purchase of the recommended textbook is not required. However, during the last tutorial, he expressed shocked that none of us purchased the text for reference and remarked that it would be difficult to pass the exams if we didn’t have the text book for reference.
