Professor Brown was commended for being extremely knowledgeable, helpful and exuding true passion for teaching. Students appreciated the many methods of communication he used to engage students such as class discussions and online forums. Some found the marking scheme to be tough, however it was well-distributed (participation/essays/quizzes). Students would have appreciated better feedback on midterms and essays.

Students had quite a lot to say about the unique experience of being taught by two professors, most often in the classroom at the same time. Some were very enthusiastic about the opportunity to be taught 'in dialogue' between two experienced collaborators in their field (they co-edited the anthology from which the course was instructed) while others felt that having two instructors at one time confused expectations. Some commented that the material of the course was somewhat dry.
