This guy is great, don't know where all the negative reviews come from! You could tell he's super passionate about these topics, and for the Cinema and Society class, he's super chill and you just watch movies. He's super lax on deadlines and if you pay attention and write the things down (and study for the exam) it's easy. Readings are long though but some are interesting.
great guy, relaxed class.
If you're looking for an easy class to have fun in and get good grades for minimal effort, this is the teacher to take. Ryan although not always professional, is extremely understanding and lenient with assignments. He will give you a ton of in class time to complete your task, plus, he gives extra time to anyone who needs it. It may not be the most interesting class but if you want a fun and relaxing class take him.
Would only stand and be unclear about what was to be given in
Truthfully would not recommend. He's unprofessional and doesn't give a damn about his job, that much is clear. You'll do fairly well in his course if you present yourself to class and make an effort. You should absolutely get the hang of Audacity, it'll save you loads of class time that you can free up to try chasing him down in whatever location that he's run off to. He's not responsive to messages or any efforts at communicating, don't expect much from this guy. Try to avoid him if you can.
He is a terrible teacher. Never take him. So disorganized , never posts marks , /"" around awful
If you see a class with Ryan...RUN! If you care about your college experience, performance and academic success, DO NOT TAKE this guy. He is extremely disorganized, unprofessional slacker. He never grades on time. He is always late and he leaves early before the class ends. Unhelpful. You will not know whether you pass this class or not until the deadline for marks submission.He doesn't care about the students success and has no constructive criticism.This guy shouldn't call himself a teacher.
1) late (grade submission)
2) boring (literally slept every class)
3) never replies to mio's (still hasn't opened my message)
4) terrible taste in movies
5) careless attitude
6) accepts late assignments
7) despite sleeping every class, I got a 9/10 for participation, which proves that he gives random marks to his students
Overall, bad teacher
He's unprofessional and very unorganized. He can give you an unfair mark for participation like 1/10 mainly because it's literally the deadline date and he doesn't remember how you were in his class so he'll give you whatever he feels like even though you always take notes in his class, never talks when he's speaking... Found that part of him very unprofessional. If you're the kind of person who doesn't care if you'll receive 80% of your grade on deadline date, this guy is for you.
Everything below is true (about not using Omnivox and marks) it's an easy class and he lets you work at your own pace. He shows up late sometimes, which makes it seem like he doesn't care, but it's clear he does when you're working with him.
If you wana stress about marks he is the teacher to take! Doesnt put anything on omnivox, never gives anything back so you have no idea of how youre doing in class, is immature, unorganized and always late... If you wana learn he is not the teacher to take, for media he is ok but for radio i dont recommend taking him.
Ryan is absolutely hilarious! He makes jokes all the time... and be prepared to listen to his weird voices he makes. I had him for Radio I and it was one of my favourite classes. He is very animated, and his assignments are not complicated as long as you make an effort. TAKE HIM!
this teacher is kind of querky. if you are easly put off by someone acting silly, doing strange voices and being loud around you then he is not the teacher for you. if you dont mind then hes awesome. nice guy and is always there to help. and just as an FYI he is a huge environmental nutt, so if you ever need to add some words to your essay or choose a topic for radio, find a way to relate it back to the environment.
Loved his "Cinema and Society" class! During each class he talked for the first 30 minutes about the theme and context of the movie and then we went to the auditorium to watch it! He's a very easy-going guy and he is willing to give you a break if you become backed up with school work near the end of the semester. Don't miss out on this class! I don't know why some people are saying he's weird.. I thought he was just a little goofy, but that's not a negative thing :)
a little strange, but all in all hes a good guy and a layed back teacher. not very clear on home work though there is not alot. ask as many questions as you need he trys to help as much as he can
really good teacher I actually had him for 2 classes, radio and media and culture. He tells you exactly what you have to study for the exams, and his exams easy. his media class is the best!! take it!
the class is easy but way too laid back and way too little assignments, everything is worth massive amounts of marks, but if you can resist sleep you are good to go
He's easygoing. Always late for class. Watch movies every class after a 20 minute lecture. I didn't like the way he divided his marking scheme. You have one essay worth 30%, 3 journals worth 30% and 2
really easy class you do a 20 min lecture than watch a film and gives u the answers 4 the test
The greatest man ever. What can I say The great Ryan Young. Take him, no matter what class it is...
Totally love him, his classes r just fun and its so easy to get good marks. But u still learn something. Oh and he'll always be late for class, so if ur always as late as I am, it's for your own good!
Ryan is the best! Radio 1 was so easy, easy marks and easy stuff. Tests are so simple he gave like 2 and practically gave the answers!! must take! fun stuff :)
Cinema and Society: BEST TEACHER/CLASS EVER!!! He's hilarious and his class is so chill, I learned a lot. 3 reflection assignments, 2 tests and a final paper (all easy). Recommend him 100%!!
(Radio) We had to teach ourselves how to use the equipment/programs. Wastes time talking when we could be doing our projects. Id take him again only cause its easy marks, fun if you're with friends.
you don't learn anything in this guys class9it's not even funny)...he dosen't teach anything to his students...it's quite sad and a waste of time(don't take him)...
i like him, he's hilarious and makes you want to pay attention, although he's always 10 minutes late for class...hahaha...
HE WAS BORN TO BE A TEACHER!!! HAHAHA BEST TEACHER AT JOHN ABBOTT!!!
Ryan always jokes around, but he's totally lazy and he's always late for class. If you want to get a good mark easily, take him!
He's a great guy but isn't much of a teacher. Classes weren't challenging at all and we spent a lot of time sitting around. If you're lazy then take him, but if you want to be busy go for someone else.
Half way through his Radio 2 class and we've spent more time sitting around than anything else. Great easy class, but learned more in radio 1 than anything so far with Ryan. Take him for an easy time.
Great guy, although you have to be prepared to not do much in class. I took him for 4 different classes and never rly learned much, he mostly gives us random assignments to have something to grade at the end of the semester
class is very easy..... altho i did not learn ne thing in his radio class I learnt a lot in his media class tho it was boring! Take him if you can he's really nice and sweet. Oh and be prepared to hear the word "classic" alot
Had him for media studies. Didn't really do anything, just listened to him talk in class then watched a movie. He's nice and funny and friendly with students. Basically, an easy and fun class to take with him.
He doesn't really teach anything. Just sends you out to try to interview people. The class is kida lame. Easy, but lame.
hes an amazing teacher... really into the environment!! GREAT CLASS!
He's very laid back and an overall good guy, and while he knows what he's talking about, I didn't learn anything from his Radio class. If you're passionate about the class it's enjoyable but if not it's very, VERY boring.
As a teacher, he is just adequate. I can't say I learnt a lot from him himself. He is however a really cool guy and he shows a lot of very interesting and informative documentaries in his Media Studies class. Easy marker.
his cinema complementary is very interesting and I'm glad I took it!
||||||||||||||||CLASSIC|||||||||||||||||||||| Ryan is the best teacher in the world!
Chill teacher!! As long as you do your work and hand it in before the end of the semester you'll pass. He's a funny guy and makes the class interesting!
lol... of ryan. so funny, so fun, and my friends and i look forward to his class. he's always like 10 minutes late for class, and you can hand in the assignment he hands out the first week almost 3 weeks after the semester is over and he doesn't even care. he's a cool guy, and him and the tech Don are hilarious and fun to be around. take him for radio or video prod, for cinema and society he's less fun but the class was still incredibly easy.
Best teacher who ever lived, period. Do whatever it takes to get this guy as a teacher, u won't regret it, especially for radio. I'm gonna try to get him for another course again.
EASY classes! Sure, of course u can hand in the assingment 3 weeks later! Honest, soo slack! Just needs to STOP walking back n forth when he lectures! Take him, good guy.
If you want a slack class with easy grades, take him. If you want to actually learn, don't.
if you don't like ryan, there is something wrong with you. he's the chillest teacher ever. RYAN'S AWESOME!!!!
Cool guy, i think he loses some of the assigments but besides that his classes are very very easy.
Very nice guy, very laid back. Class is sometimes boring, but the discussions are always really cool. Got a 60 (did had in work) still oved his class. Cute too!
Good guy, good teacher, do the work, come to class... listen when he tells you what may be on the test because it just might.. have fun! some interesting things
great guy... a lot of enthusiasum and you can tell he loves to teach, great connection with his students - show up to class and do the work and it will be an en
Cool guy. I like him....you'll all remember him saying "Classic" ...so fun. Work: not hard, just do it...easy mark! and: YOU'LL PASS FOR SURE!!!
Very nice and funny guy. His classes are fun and not very hard, just hand in the work and you'll be sure to pass.
Take his class! He's super chill and really nice. He isn't the most organzied, but hey, who cares? You'll pass for sure & if you try you'll do amazing!He's fun!
Nice guy. Bad teacher. He's not organized at all and you don't have any idea what's going on. You have no idea where your grades come from, but you will pass.
He doesn't even correct any work given in, he just grades random marks, i'm not kidding! He's nice but not fair
Nice guy...bad teacher. You have no clue how you're being graded, if you get your work back it's a miracle, and he was late every class. Good class for slackers
i love him! so sweet and funny and caring! great teacher!
Really nice guy. Fairly easy grader. He has a passion for what he is teaching and knows what he is talking about.
excellent course, super nice guy, would definitely take him again
