Martin is the coolest guy you'll ever have as a professor. His journalism class in particular is a blast to attend. Also an essay pass if you put in some effort in your papers and give them all in on time (or at a reasonable time). You should definitely take him if you need to get a complimentary out of the way, and especially if you are in communications and need to do a class like this for your progression grid,
His journalism class is really fun, but you're got to be prepared to go out and do some face-to-face interviews. In terms of how to write an article I think it helps if you've had some practice with it in high school, but he's very open to questions if you don't understand something or need help with format/content/whatever. Honestly if you have proper formatting the only place you'll lose marks on his assignments is with grammar/spelling, so if you're good in English you'll be better off.
Amazing teacher! Had him for cultural currents, a subject I usually found boring but he managed to make it interesting. A truly nice guy, you can talk to him about anything and he is very respectful. I missed an essay and a quiz and he let me make up for that on the last class, he never gives anyone a zero, always gives chances. He gets along great with students, and is just a genuine nice person.
Great teacher. Helps you plan out your future, class can sometimes be boring.. he does drag on a little. But overall, he wants you to succeed and will help you with whatever you need. Replies to emails fast!
If you're going into Journalism or anything within or close to that field (editor, film, etc..) take him. I had him for 'Writing for Print/Broadcast Media'. He honestly blew my mine. I've never had a teacher who was so passionate about what he taught. I learned so much from him. Personally, he's an easy marker, but it really depends on you. He's very strict about cell phones. His lectures do drag on a bit but they're so worth it. Always there to answer questions, amazing feedback! Take him! :D
he talks about nothing!!!!! his lectures have nothing to do with the evaluations.. super obnoxious - he asked at leat 10 times who had been to Paris or London to the museums, let some kid blast porn on the projector! he gave is own opinions on politics and religion and to top it all off he would show up late for a one hour class, DO NOT TAKE THIS GUY
His class gets a little boring at times, but the work is easy and he's a nice guy! Very helpful and answers emails FAST!
Interesting choice of movies, he's not the type to show you something you've seen a billion times. He gives good lectures and is really nice. I'd recommend him.
Hated him. He never took attendance yet he knew everyones names. Not a very easy marker. Picks on people.
I really wonder how some of you will do in University. Even if you go into film you will have to deal with 3 hour lectures. This isnt high school anymore, its about LONG LECTURES. Hes a great prof
nice guy, lousy dull teacher. a real gossip chat class, no actual content except the movies. kinda high school, very easy pass
VERY EASY CLASS, only downside classes get abit long, he doesnt let you out a minute early. quizzes are easy if u pay attention to the movie. amazing guy very sociable and always well prepared
(Intro to films) Nice guy and it's easy to contact him. His class is really easy to pass, but is boring. Too much talking and revision. I didn't learn a thing.
He is what people say he "one of those nice guys" easy class. Taught us how to interpertat movies better than before. Only problem 3 hours is to long and he can talk to much sometimes.
he's cool, but 3 hour classes...too long. other than that if you're into media's misrepresentation of the minorities and the women, than you'll hear alot of that. also, it got a bit boring at the end.
As everyone has said, he is literally one of those "nice" guys in life, he'd give you a kidney if he thought it might help you out. He is a little boring in class though, but as long as you try and show up for class, he will pass you. If there is a remote chance you will fail, he'll talk to you about it and work something out. Great teacher.
I really enjoyed having him as a teacher. No Complaints!
I know that it's called a lecture for a reason, but this man repeats himself far too much, we all know what a stereotype is, I learned about in grade two. His media classes are basically common knowledge, and pretty easy. He himself is a nice man, but don't ask your the person next to you anything, because he gets really annoyed.
Awesome teacher, i would not hesitate about taking him again. Very interesting material, very helpfull and is by far the best teacher i had this semester. Do the work and you will definatly pass.
Great teacher, he's very understanding.. Attend to all his classes and hand in ur work on time and u'll pass.. However, his classes are boring.. He talks a lot.. too much!
Cool teacher, will help you inside and out of the class, true useful feedback in papers. good teacher over all
Such a nice guy, and actually cares about how well his students do, Is always available to talk about school or just chit chat. Classes are interesting and he does a great job expalining movies. My favorite teacher at Vanie college and if i could i would go back and retake his classes i would for sure! You wont find many teachers like Siberok who will actually take the time to help their students succeed.
easy, nice guy, you learn very little but he shows movies.
you dont really do much, he just talks and talks and talks and talks. not for serious students but a really nice person, but he thinks yapping is teaching. C-
Why do you say he's boring? You are fools. You say he talks a lot: It's not called a "lecture" for no reason!
He talks in circles and always says you know and "like",but he's super cool,really cares about his students and his feedback on papers is ver helpful.
He's a very nice guy, but he talks all class and he is very picky.
VERY BORING, NOT To interesting, he talks way too much, but really easy pass, and he is an ok guy.
his three hour journalism class is very long but the things you do in his class are very easy
The topics are interested if your a big movie buff, and are actually interested in that kind of thing, the work is easy, espacially if you listen to what he say
This teacher is the best....he'll always be there if you need help....He talks A LOT, but he's super NICE!!!...(OH YEAH....DON'T TALK IN CLASS...!)
HE SAYS YOU KNOW AVERAGE 5 TIMES PER MINUTEI COUNTED
A really cool teacher. He loves what he is doing and is super nice.
probably the most boring nice teacher in the world. if you want to sleep take his class. super nice, super boring.
nice guy! he could easily talk non stop for 12 hours if he wanted to...he says you know so often it drives you nuts!!! :O)
A nice caring teacher, maybe with afew more jokes would be more fun.
hes the most caring,nicest coolest teacher...easy 90..just dont eat in his class
i liked his teacher..sometimes the 3 hours pass a litte slowly..but usually fun
he teaches u dont have to listen and u will still pass this guy is amazing
