There were many concerns for this course. In general, students found the course material and topics interesting and the textbook very useful. Professor Norrlof is very intelligent and knowledgeable; however, she did not effectively convey the course material. The professor needed to communicate more effectively, be more organized and prepared, and be more enthusiastic during the lectures. Many felt that the professor was not approachable, the lectures were not as efficient as they could be, questions needed to be answered more effectively, more availability from the professor during office hours was needed, and that the overheads could be more detailed. Also, that the professor needed to speak slower during the lectures, use more relevant examples, and have more patience with the class. Some students felt that other students needed to be more respectful to the professor and not cause interruptions during the lectures. Some concerns were that the class started too late, the class ended too early, the breaks were very long, assignments needed more feedback and comments, and too much time was spent during lectures trying to figure out how to operate the audio visual equipment for PowerPoints and mics. Others felt that the professor failed to realize that the course doesn't require any prior background knowledge and some felt that the professor appeared to have difficulty adjusting as an instructor at UTSC. Overall, many were disappointed with this course and the professor and felt that this course was not beneficial.
