The instructor was widely acknowledged for his eagerness to teach and convey material to his students. His “passion” for the course was highly regarded, and inspired students to “think outside the box.” Use of examples pertaining to human ecology was appreciated, and made the course relevant. Fact sheets and 5 minute review sessions were helpful learning tools.
