Most comments received touch on the format of the course, involving guest lectures across a variety of fields, which students found too demanding in specialized ways that not everyone had the background to handle. Several students also complain that despite the nature of the material covered examination was based largely on the memorization and repetition of lecture content. Students seemed to appreciate the intent of this course but also felt the full potential was missed and made various suggestions designed to capitalize on that potential in the future.
