Students found Professor Mackintosh to be an excellent lecturer and appreciated him as a professor. Several felt that expectations regarding assignments were not clearly communicated, however, expect perhaps after they were submitted, and many were not happy with the course TA who was responsible for grading but was inaccessible and not forth-coming with help or explanations.

Many felt that this course lacks a clear focus or goal hence making the content a bit abstract. Some found that the notes were not adequate for exam preparation and readings did not always correlate to lectures, also some assignment requirements were not clear. An overwhelming number of students enjoyed the montage assignment and think that Professor Mackintosh is an excellent instructor and should be a full-time professor.

Students express a lot of personal regard for Professor Mackintosh, and several comment that they have had him for multiple courses and actively seek him out. They especially praise his availability for individual consultation and his openness to discussion. This was a seminar-style class (though a large one) and most students reacted favourably to that format, feeling that it kept the class interesting and motivating. A few felt lost, however, and would have preferred more concrete lecturing.
