Comment:
Worst prof I've ever had. For media aesthetics, provides no slides or actual study material. Forces students to pay for TopHat program and online textbook access code - yet does not know how to use either. Participation marks constantly get skipped due to her not knowing how to navigate program. M/C Tests are awful, make up majority of grade. BAD

I remembered professor Virdi today. I took three classes with her 6 years ago. I learned a lot from her and I became even more passionate about film. She taught her subject very well without being patronizing or overbearing like many other professors teaching this subject.

Comment:
The course material itself I found to be interesting but I disliked Virdi as a teacher. I had a lot of difficulty paying attention to her lectures because I had trouble understanding her words because of her accent and she presented the material in a dull, boring manner. Overall, I recommend not taking this course if you have Virdi as your prof.

Awful at lecturing. I've had teachers with hard-to-understand accents but they understood how slides could help students understand when they can't hear clearly. Virdi uses no slides. Won't mention the textbook then tests only on the textbook.

Unhelpful, unable to control a lecture. Class seems like it was designed to be a cop out, an easy elective that requires no participation or attendance. I have learned nothing new attending her class. Received an A on the first of three assignments (others not yet due) without ever attending and taking the initiative to learn by myself.

Comment:
Awful professor. Don't know what's harder: her papers, or trying to stay awake in her class. Has trouble with the projector on occasion, speaks in a thick accent which makes it very hard to...um..uh...um...comprehend her. She's not engaging, or at the very least, doesn't make an effort to get class discussions going. Don't take this class.

I dread going to the class every week because it is so dull. There are no discussions, she just drones on for an hour in an awful accent. I will not take any of her classes again. The only good thing is that there is only one test.

Comment:
Cinema History was an awesome class except for her teaching it. Your whole grade was based on a M/C Test and two papers. I got a bad mark on a paper and went to talk to her about it and she just said "I only mark Sr. level papers.. see the TA. So pissed about that. She was very unhelpful, dull and uniterested in me and my learning as a student.

Comment:
Virdi is the most boring prof. i;ve ever had. I was warned before taking her class but I had no choice as I had only 1 course to grad. she literally reads of her notes and does not engage the class in any form of discussion or commenting. Best of all....she is Indian and denies this fact.....

Comment:
Worst lecturer I've had at this University. Her accent isn't that bad, but she's a boring, monotone speaker and she reads directly from her notes. She also checks the time every few minutes - if she can't wait for class to end, how should we feel? She's also lazy, giving us M/C tests or having a GA grade short papers.

Comment:
Probably one of the worst lecturers at the university. Her accent is annoying as heck.Worse still,she has no clue how to structure a class!3 M/C tests consist of your entire grade in her Media Aesthetics course,and she wonders why students dont participate or retain anything in her class.She also lectures BEFORE her exam on material that is tested

Most of the comments here are rude and inaccurate. Virdi may be a bit dry at times, but she's passionate and knows her stuff. Seems like a lot of useless slacker kids signed up thinking they were in for easy "goof-off" classes because the subject is film. Wrong! Virdi takes film seriously - much appreciated. Paper expectations could be clearer.

Jyotika rocks! I cannot believe the ammount of crap people give her but she's a very knowledgable prof. If people actually listened to her instead of poking fun at her accent then maybe they'd actually learn something. But thankfully the University knows her wealth and I hope she keeps teaching for many more years.

Talks herself in circles, can't explain things properly. Wouldn't recommend taking media Asethics with her either, she's even worse in that class due to the lack of online notes...
