There was unanimous agreement that Professor Ilie has an amazing personality and enthusiasm to teach this course. However, majority of the students in this course found the lectures to be disorganized and that the instructor addressed only the front row students in class. There was also a huge concern over an incident that happened in class where Professor Ilie addressed a student very rudely in front of 500 students (student had asked a question regarding bonus question on the midterm exam). Many felt that this should have been handled more politely. Students also thought that the exams should be more reflective of the course material. Students also would have appreciated if the full class time was used to explain all the relevant course material that would be tested. Other than that, the course in itself was very interesting.

Professor Ilie was noted as being an extremely enthusiastic and compassionate Professor however her teaching style was much more suited to smaller class sizes. She tried quite hard to include large amounts of class discussion which in smaller senior level classes is great but that didn't seem to work as well in a class of 500. Students suggested that for a class of this size that they would prefer to see a more structured learning process with fewer tangents but that they would love to take one of Professor Ilie's classes later on.

Students felt that the material for this course was inherently interesting but add that Professor Burke's engaged instruction made it moreso. Although several students had issues with both the timing and the length of the lecture (7-10pm) many credit Professor Burke with making it bearable and even enjoyable. Several students expressed a desire for more detailed prepared notes to be made available.
