Students had quite a lot to say about the unique experience of being taught by two professors, most often in the classroom at the same time. Some were very enthusiastic about the opportunity to be taught 'in dialogue' between two experienced collaborators in their field (they co-edited the anthology from which the course was instructed) while others felt that having two instructors at one time confused expectations. Some commented that the material of the course was somewhat dry.

Students were again divided in their opinions regarding the effectiveness of the co-teaching arrangement, with some highly enthusiastic about the results and others feeling a bit lost. Most students responded well to moving some of the work of the course on-line (with mail in weekly assignments, and prompt replies to e-mail) while some felt a bit confused as expectations regarding these methods were not clearly laid out from the beginning.
