I took the IA course as a continuing education course; it could have been so much better. We had to submit group work, group work is rarely very rewarding or "fun." The course was not very well structured. We submitted homework every week for the duration of 6 weeks, no one received a grade or a review on the homework submitted...ever. The final homework assignment was submitted and once again, zero feedback regarding grading or comments on how anyone taking this course could improve? The instructor, Darren was MIA when you emailed him for information, no response to emails. No feedback on our final assignment. Everyone in the group received the same mark regardless of the individual's participation. I would not recommend this course.
I would not recommend taking COMP9673 (Information Architecture) with Aaron Bernardo. He is disorganized and inarticulate, and he does not provide feedback to students or return assignments to them. If you take a course with him, you will have no idea ...
I would not recommend taking COMP9673 (Information Architecture) with Aaron Bernardo. He is disorganized and inarticulate, and he does not provide feedback to students or return assignments to them. If you take a course with him, you will have no idea how you are doing in the course until after it is over. I am not convinced that he even looks at what's submitted... he seems too disorganized for that. There are some good instructors in George Brown's UX program, but Aaron is not one of them.
