Spring 2022 - This course was labeled Education 122: Literacy in Society. As someone who has been very engaged and inspired by the education classes I have taken here at UCLA, I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the delivery and my engagement during this particular course. This course had a lot of group and collaboration-based work. It was nice to connect with other peers, but none of the work we did in our groups was meaningful or challenging, it seemed like a lot of busy work to me personally. I think the group work would have had a greater impact on me had the work been more engaging and not as pointless. This professor was very kind, understanding, and accommodating to health, personal, and COVID-related issues, which was much appreciated during this time. She seemed to have a genuine interest in the subject, I just feel that delivery was not effective. I personally felt like the assessments in this class (workplace paper, book that made a difference, connecting tech and literacy project) were all just time-consuming busy work and did not meaningfully contribute to my understanding of the class material. It felt like I spent a lot of time on papers and projects that were just busy work. Being a UCLA upper-division class, I was disappointed in the assessments and assignments in this class. I can't say I would recommend others to take this class unless they are just wanting a very easy (but somewhat writing-heavy and boring) course that they honestly will not gain much from.
