Students enjoyed having guest speakers in this course. There were mixed feelings about the discussions and quizzes in this course. While some felt that the discussions were good, others felt that there needs to be more structure to them so that the notes, articles, and reading questions are more efficiently discussed. Some were content with having weekly quizzes since they helped clarify the material from the readings while others felt that they were not effective methods of evaluation. Some concerns were that there was a lot of reading, group projects might not effectively reflect a student's understanding of the course material, reading questions and lecture notes were not posted online within a reasonable amount of time. Also, not having background information prior to taking this course made it a bit more challenging to fully grasp the course material. Overall, this was an interesting course and a knowledgeable professor.
