Overall, students thought that Professor Howard exhibited excellent teaching skills and showed enthusiasm for the material. Many felt that the course applied to real-life situations such as interviews and public speaking. However, some students felt that the grading scheme in certain exercises was unfair, and that the workload could be too high with regards to simultaneous presentations, projects and impromptus. One suggestion students had for Professor Howard was to focus more on the ‘management’ aspect of the course rather than the ‘drama/performance’ aspect of the course.
