That he uploaded everything on laulima and it was always before hand.
The powerpoints were all online and the iclicker questions made for good practice.
No comment
Being able to sit in lectures.
Clear-cut, no surprises. Somewhat interesting. I liked the way Justin Walguarnery would explain a lot of the slides which did help to better understand concepts rather then just reading them offline.

The examples he gave to explain different concepts were interesting, such as the bioluminescent cat
All concepts are explained in detail by presentations and orally.
he is always prepared and knows alot about the course material.
Great flow with the lectures. He was very well prepared which helped a lot.
The aspects of the course that I liked the best were that all the aspects of the course were interesting and very useful to know. Also, the teacher is very good at explaining all the concepts and the definitions. The tests are also very relevant to the lectures and the material learned in class. So, the tests were not that difficult as long as I put a lot of time into studying for them. I also liked the using the iclickers because it helped me to participate and helped facilitate my learning. It is more interactive when using iclickers instead of thinking that this is just one of those boring classes that I would have to sit in again.
The class was interesting.
The interesting topics that was covered made the course fun.
He had good examples.
He made the course easy through his lectures

Justin Walguarnery knows everything there is to know, and is able to answer questions in depth to make sure you know what is going on.
Everything
I liked his style of lecture and was easy to understand
The instructor was very nice.
I like biology, in general. I loved learning about the study of life. The material was inetresting to learn about.
Lectures were on Laulima
The teaching style was what i liked most about the class.
The feel
I liked the iclickers as a way to reinforce information at the end of class, and his illustrations in his powerpoints were really clear and easy to understand. Plus, he graded very fairly.
The explanations and the videos that shows the examples.
The powerpoints were effective tools for learning
Liked the powerpoints and the picture demonstrations
I liked the way homework was conducted on mastering biology, I also liked the visuals and examples used in lecture.
I liked learning new things that I have never known prior to the course.
I like the power points, they were easy to understand and got straight to the point.
The iclicker questions were especially helpful in the understanding of class material.
The pictures, diagrams, and videos in lecture and in homework sets were really helpful in understanding the certain steps of processess like in DNA replication, Light Reaction...etc.
I enjoyed the iclicker question Mr. Walguarnery provided us in class because it allowed us to utilize what we just learned in class and test our knowledge. It also gave us an idea of what an exam question on the specific topic would be like, preparing us for the exam. In addition, Mr. Walguarnery always explained the question after all the iclicker results came in, so we were able to reconfirm our choice or learn why we got the question wrong. I feel that what I was able to retain more of what I learned from the iclicker questions than from reading the textbook.
I liked the use of the iclicker for extra points and for help with ideas for what would be on the tests.
Straight and to the point
ICLICKER QUESTIONS and Masteringbiology, for the extra points!
i love biology
Justin is very consistent and his work is always posted for your personal studying.
The review before the exams.
I liked that each lecture was posted online for reviewing and that the exams were based only on the lectures. I also liked that we had iclicker questions to help us see if we understood the material. It was great that the iclicker questions were extra credit, and getting them wrong did not count against our grades.
The teacher.
I liked having review sessions before the tests during a class period.
Justin Walguarnery knew the material very well and provided key points to stress on for upcoming exams.
The exams, straight to the point!
Everything was to the point.
The course is based on powerpoint lectures so there is nothing really to like besides the material in any chapters.
Powerpoints and his explanation for each slide
I love the evolution aspects of this course.
I really like the power point presentations that were made available. They helped. The i clicker was a valuable tool, too. Being able to answer things like this in class helped to drive points home and reinforce material from the lecture. The fact that there was no point value assigned to right or wrong and instead assigned to participation made it even better. I think that this is a great way to get people involved without putting them on the spot in classrooms as large as ours. People are very self conscious.
Clicker questions promoted participation. Interesting material and straight to the point. Also, lecture slides were posted which helped in reviewing and gaining a full understanding of the material.
how we come back to material so it is okay if i dont have it down the first time around.
I thought the lectures were easy to follow and take notes on
The fact that the test are based off the lectures so it made studying for test easier.

14. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Nothing really, except that homework is a must for this class.
He's very monotone. Very boring.
I did not like that the lectures were so long, yet the lecture had to be done quickly.
there is no aspects of the course I liked least.
What I did not like about the course is that the lessons were too fast. Walguarnery explained each one thoroughly but just the overall time went too quick and learning a bunch of information in a short period of time before the tests were a bit overwhelming.
The lectures were sometimes a bit boring, but maybe I only fell asleep because it was a morning class.
Nothing
The aspect of the course that I like the least is the broken iclicker program on some days...we couldn't do the iclicker questions :(
HIs voice is pretty monotonic, so lectures can get boring easily.
Class size is very large.
Interesting subject and the professor was really trying to communicate with the students.
How he had extra credit and did the iClicker.
Learning about inheritance.

His tests were set up for an advanced class rather then a 101 class.
I disliked how some of the homework was difficult and different from what was on the exam.
I disliked nothing.
None.
Sometimes Walguarnery went over some material on his slides rather quickly because he was a little late to class.
Having such a large class made it very intimidating to ask questions.
None
N/A
How I did not use my textbook at all. I spent money on these textbooks and they weren't helpful since his exams are based on lectures. Wasted money on the books, should have returned them but required the mastering biology code.
Terribly slow at returning grades for exams with students with disabilities having to wait longer than those without. Students who took their exams at Kokua had to wait an additional week (at least) for exams. I would have liked three exams covering 6 chapters each instead of two exams covering nine chapters each. I feel like I retain the information better when tested on smaller chunks of information.
The class was exceptionally well.
A lot of information to memorize for the exam
I liked everything about the class.
I did not like the fact that we could not do our work ahead of time. The work was not uploaded until that time.
None
I did not enjoy the fact that there were so many people in the lecture. But I understand that it is something that cannot be helped.
nothing. My tuition was not poorly spent. It was worth every penny.
The tests weren't as easy because they covered a ton of materials.
The early class time was unfavorable because many students are not awake yet at 8:30. Perhaps a later time would be better.
not enough interaction with course knowledge.
the way his exam questions are worded.
Monotone when speaking in lecture. Hard to focus sometimes.
It was way too early in the morning. The class is always packed and I was deterred from going to lecture because there was mostly no seating.
none
None.
none
The professor was not easily available to answer questions and didn't respond to emails in a timely manner if at all. Given the large class size and not the opportunity to ask too many questions in the class itself, I think its important for the professor to respond to emails on a regular basis.
His exams are a little hard, and doesn't test on concepts, but only on specific information.
Although lectures can get a bit monotonous, there wasn't anything that I didn't like from this course.
nothing
Nothing at the moment.
i-Clicker! I always forgot mine. The i-Clicker is Walguarnery's way of seeing who all attended class, so I could be there but since I'd forgotten my i-Clicker, I would be counted as absent.
I didn't like the homework problems on MasteringBiology. Some of the questions were very weirdly worded and sometimes did not work with my browser.
I didn't really have any
Well nothing really was bad about this class...
I love the class in general I have nothing negative to say.
The material itself was the best.
the lecture, its so boring
none
The Mastering bio homework. Hard to remember to complete them!

Sometimes the lectures were dry, also use of a laser pointer may have been helpful when pointing to things in the powerpoint in front of the class.
Nah, it was pretty good.
There weren't any apsects of the course i did not enjoy.
there wasn't anything that i didn't like
HW and examples are all online. Some in-book problems would be good.
I did not like how distracting the lecture hall could be at times.
I felt that some of the exam question were poorly worded and difficult to understand.
None
too big
There was nothing i didnt dislike
Some slides were too long to follow.
None
I wouldn't say that I didn't like mastering biology. I thought it could have been more useful. Some of the questions in my opinion were not related to the study material. Especially toward the parts about Darwin and Natural Selection. In the beginning they were great but as the semester went on the questions started to go away from the lectures.
It is very boring.
Just the fact that there's so many students!
He tends to repeat what he says on the slides as he teaches us.
no study guides
I would've liked more visual examples, maybe animations in order to explain the concepts.
Biology is a difficult subject for me but I think the professor teaches it very well so there is nothing i did not like.
Not many grades, him not being consistent with posting homework
I didn't like the iClicker questions, only because they seemed a lot harder than the information that we learned before. They're supposed to be learning checks, but I didn't know the answers to a lot of them. But I do like having learning checks in place. They make the class more interesting.
Nothing in particular. The lecture hall was uncomfortable.
Although the powerpoints were the method by which Justin taught, I felt that he could've made the powerpoints more interesting with the addition of videos.
I didn't like how it wasn't very interactive, I know that a lecture is difficult to add participation in but its better if students are more comfortable with asking questions during lecture
None
The class size is to big for the room. Students were constantly forced to sit on the stairs so they dont bump each other while they take notes. The test were incredibly difficult.
There were no aspects of the course that I disliked.
some of the slides were just repeated information
The course was dull at times because it was only lecture
None
There is a lot of information for this course that it becomes a bit overwhelming at times.
Always running till the end of the allotted class time.
I enjoyed all aspects of this course.
I don't like how there is so much material to study for.

n/a
I didn't find Homework on MasteringBiology helpful some of the time because there ended up being homework problems of topics that we weren't responsible for knowing for the exams and wasn't on lecture slides.
When the iclicker didn't work.
What I like the least was when we or a next your professor tried to ask us questions however students weren't really motivated to participate in the lectures.
Nothing to not like. It was a basic course and he taught the material really well.
To much content for one test.
Tests.
That it was VERY power point based. I understand that with 300 students you have to rely on a projection system, but he had a hard time stepping away from the power point and interacting with us.
Nothing specific that I didn't like, except that it was early!
mastering biology online homework
boring ish

I least liked the discussion on meiosis and all those processes.
* Online homework was sometimes inconsistent and confused me * When passing out the tests the Professor has no help so some students get the test faster * I would have enjoyed practice exams

I didn't like the homework part of the course. I didn't think it was very helpful. It was just something to get done by the due date.
the trick multiple choice questions on the exams
N/A
The only thing I didn't like is that some of the questions felt like curve- balls.
I didn't feel like I could go to the instructor if I wanted clarification about certain topics.
The assigned homeworks.
Some concepts where left unclear, difficult.
I did not like that some things were covered in much greater detail than other things that were just as complicated.
It was too early in the morning. Next semester I will schedule a later class.
Problems with the equipment.
nothing it was all good and strait forward.
Posting the lectures on Laulima were great because I would print them out and take notes on it during class. However, towards the end of the semester the lectures were posted late, right before class so I did not get a chance to print them out.
N/A
He's just really monotone so lectures are a little boring. I took the 830 class this semester and fell asleep a few times. Can't really help it, it's the register of his voice
I didn't like how he wouldn't post the powerpoints on laulima until right before the class or sometimes even after class was over since I like to have the powerpoint on my laptop during his lecture so I can follow along.
I felt like there were too many technical difficulties. There were a lot of times where the iClicker machine did not work(not that I'm complaining, he gives us all points when that happens) and other times when we'd have to delay class because the cabinet was locked and he could not access his materials. Besides the couple times this happened I believe the class went fairly well.
His lectures were sometimes boring. But for topics like that it is difficult to keep lectures interesting.
Mastering Biology homework.
The course was slightly boring at times.
He didn't have a TA. During exams, he passed the exams out himself. It took a lot of time away from the exam.
The aspects of the course I liked the least was that for me personally I thought that everything was too packed, as in all the information being to compact and allowed me to retain all this information in such a short time. Also, maybe he could go a little more in depth for the study guide for midterms or exams.
the lectures were long and hard to follow at times.
Nothing he made the course difficult yet understandable and interesting.
how much material we learn in such a short amount of time.
Cause the lecture was so big, it was hard to see and hear from the back of the room, and sometimes the microphone or i-clicker wasn't working...and the slides went to fast... I didn't really like how it took forever to get our test grades back..
N/A
Class size.
early class
There is a lot of material that is covered in this class. I wish it would have been broken up a little more. Test were every 8-9 chapters I believe. It would have been nice if it would have been every 4-5 chapters. Given us two more exams throughout the semester. This way more time could have been devoted to each chapter when studying instead of having to remember all 8 chapters on a 50 question exam is a lot of information to recall.
Only having three exams.
I did not like how I don't know how the grading system works, it not very clear.
iclicker
Tests of course.
labs, homework
the homework
Clicker questions.
Points are limited to 3 exams.
There really wasn't anything that I didn't like.
Lectures were too long
Did not find the mastering biology homework to be helpful when it came to the exams.
Sometimes students talking during the lecture was distracting. Every once in a while online homework problems seemed to have some glitches, an animation wouldn't load correctly or it was difficult to tell what was being pointed at in a figure, these technical issues impact our course grade even though it's not a matter of a lack of understanding of the subject matter.
The tests were slightly difficult
It was soooo boring sometimes. The material is already kind of dense in parts and somehow the lectures would put me to sleep. I think they get monotone. I wis there was more enthusiasm, real life examples, humor, something to keep me interested.
exams.
Nothing really
Evolution.
None
The amount of time it took to see exam grades.
the time limit put on some of the mastering biology homeworks
Sometimes he forgot to tell us when we had homework.
none
I didn't like the review sessions. They did not help me at all.
Boring lectures
I didnt like that the second midterm had questions from the homework, and I think that the homework should at least give you 2 chances to get the correct answer before taking off points.
exams
too much terms.
the time it was at was too late
Sometimes it is hard to focus in the class and it is easy to zone off.
100% Lecture
How cold the lecture hall in Spalding was.
I think the powerpoints should be uploaded to Laulima earlier than the day of class.
I would have liked more review before the second test, the material was more dense.
The test was pretty difficult.
He tended to depend on the power point presentations a little too much and he had a difficult time describing some of the illustrations on the screen without a laser pointer or yard stick.
nothing to say
There was nothing in the course i did not like; everything was interesting and important to learn for my future career.
The iClickr use for attendance was kind of annoying for me, my iClickr kept malfunctioning (even after replacing batteries) so many days I missed opportunities to get those attendance points.
I liked the grading scale, although I think I would have been more happy with a curve.
There was just a lot of information.
One lecture per chapter. I felt like we could have stressed more chapters than others.
None.
the length of the lectures
It seems like the professor rushes through the material sometimes and doesn't take the time necessary to explain it thoroughly.
The lessons on the cell and bacteria.
none
none
I liked everything.
I didn't like that we weren't able to turn in homework late. I at least thought it would be better if we were able to turn in homework late and just have some points deducted depending on how late we turned it in.
Tests
None.
I wish there was more hands on aspects in lectures. If we had groups to \elp understand the material, and less powerpoints.
3 midterms, should be broken down to 4-6 midterms/exams
I didn't like that there wasn't a study guide for the test. Also I just didn't like the room that we were in.
The only thing about the course I did not like was the late time of the class. If I were to choose a lecture time, I probably wouldn't choose that time again.
nothing
The online homework does not really help prepare for the tests and the lectures are not very entertaining/attention grabbing?
no comment
Most likely understanding concepts.
The strange noise in the building non-stop was a little distracting, other then that can't really complain. & some concepts were talked about really fast, but thats where all the extra resources helped out.
I didn't like how much of a monotone the instructor has.
That the tests were worth almost a third of our grade and homework had very little impact.
sometimes would go too fast during lectures
Phospholipid Bilayers
Grading system.
None!
n/a
It didn't like the way the information for the lectures was presented, it confused me and I couldn't relate it to the other subjects we were learning. I also didn't like the review lectures for exams, he didn't tell us what we were supposed to study and instead had us ask him questions. How are the students supposed ask for questions relating to the exam when he doesn't tell us what subjects we should focus on the most.
The chapters that require more memorization

Nothing.
I do not like that the exams weighed so heavily on your grade. The first exam results were super delayed for some unknown reason, and didn't come until 2 days before the last day to drop the class...and if you didn't do so well you had to drop the course. I think there should have been more criteria for your grade, just so that if you didn't do so well on one test you wouldn't be forced to drop or accept a C at the best.
None
Kind of reading off the slides, but still important info
In the lectures I felt like the material became to dry, and I got lost
Nothing
The tests were very different from the material,thought I knew the material but felt on the tests didnt do so well
Too much material covered on each exam.
The problem with the course was that it was pretty boring. It wasn't fun to listen to him teach. He was nice though. It's just that lecture was boring.
Went too fast, too much info at once
Lectures
I actually enjoyed everything about the class, nothing to complain about.
The fast pace powerpoint lecture and the tests.
NONE
I didn't like the speed he lectured at because it was a little fast for me to take notes and also comprehend what he was saying.
The lectures were sometimes boring and long.
I disliked how the lectures didn't ever differ in how he taught them, it would be nice if he tried different approaches.
None
The course was alright and met with course expectations, etc. However, the class never made me feel enthusiastic about the subject matter, which I wish it did. Mr. Walguarnery doesn't seem that excited about what he is teaching. However, he did do a good job of teaching us the material and got us ready for the exams.
With such a big class, it gets hard to concentrate.
The non-use of textbook
hate the part where we learned about chemistry but i know we had to understand it to be able to understand the biology portion
The test questions were wordy and confusing,
However, i wish that the review was more clear, less than half of the things gone over in the review are even on the exam...if it was more narrowed down to meet the test..then students wouldn't waste their time studying things that are unnecessary.
I didn't like that we moved through each chapter so quickly. I feel that we didn't get to fully understand and grasp the the entirety of the information, but we're rather learning just portions of each chapter. However, I understand that it was necessary to move quickly because we had to cover a lot of material within a certain time frame.
Lectures were sometimes boring.
I didn't like how sometimes the instructor didn't go in order of the chapter. He explained the information in a different order than it appears on the text bool. So it made it hard to keep up with the textbook readings.
I did not enjoy the non-use of a microphone. It appeared that the BUSAD microphones were stationary, if possible they should get mobile mics like in SPALL.
Lectures got kind of boring but it's to be expected in a big lecture class.
The way of how my professor talked.
There was nothing much that I didnt really like
Photosynthesis and Cell Resp
I didn't like the fact that the class, while interactive through iclicker, was not really interactive in any other way. It would be really cool if the classroom time could include more hands on stuff. I understand that there is a lab and the labs correspond nicely to the classroom content as it is presented, but what Justin in presenting has fascinating facets and could include some hands on stuff, too. Of course, i realize this would mean smaller classes, etc etc and that may not happen...just saying.
how much specific stuff we went over was a little frustrating, i like more of the big picture.
the mastering biology homework
the way the test questions are written made it hard for me to understand what was being asked.
asdfasdf
the lab
The specificity of different cycles. That was the most difficult to learn.
he told us the test will be straight forward and directly from the lecture slides... however, it was not
He sometimes talked too fast during the lectures and didn't give us enough time to take note.
All powerpoint lectures gets boring at times. I feel like the class needs to be stimulated and involved more. Maybe add videos or stimulate a class discussion.
The lectures got me lost sometimes and its easy to not pay attention but it was good overall.

15. Other comments:
Overall very informative. If i wasn't completely interested by Biology, I would fall asleep easily in this class though. Consider being more... engaging.
Sometime the teacher is a bit monotone and for heavy lectures like gene regulation use more visuals.
Very good teacher, I would take him for EVERY Biology class if I had the chance. He can explains things VERY well.
Keep up the good teaching Justin! You're a good professor. I like the way you teach and I hope all the other Biology professors teach the way you do. I liked the fact that you sent out the pdf document of what we are going to going over for class. It would be great if you could upload it all at once before the semester starts? My Chemistry teacher did the same with uploading a outline for our chem class. By doing this, I think it would be easier for us, the students, because we won't have to wait till the day of or the morning of class to see what we'll be doing. It'll give us a jump start on the chapters so we can be prepared in the sense. Although reading the chapter before hand is ideal, I think it would be a nice addition if you uploaded the pdf before the start of the semester so we can view or get an idea of what we're covering for that specific chapter.
Great class
I learned a great deal of information from this course, and I believe it would shape my future in Biology greatly. THANK YOU MR. WALGUARNERY!!! ã??ã??ã??ã?¨ã??ã??ã??ã??ã?¾ã??ã??ã??
Overall, Mr. W is a wonderful teacher.
Overall though your a great teacher.

Overall, he was a great professor and taught the terms in an easy-to- understand way, and helped students with inquiries and questions.
Awesome dude with great knowledge in Biology and knew what he was talking about 24/7.
Really like how Prof Walguarnery went over the slides and didn't just read from them but put things in his own words, super helpful!
I enjoyed the class.
I really want to thank Dr.Walguarnery for providing his extra office hours and helping on topics that I didn't understand or complicated topics. He provided thorough and clear explanation.
Very handsome!
GREAT teacher and I would totally have him again!
desks were not left-hand acceesable. hard to take notes on a right handed desk.
I want to take a class of his again! He's awesome
Dr. Walguarnery is very knowledgeable and explains the content efficiently. I like how he does not read exactly from the slides. Most times, it is easier to write down what he saying instead of copying text from the powerpoint. His way of describing the topic is much easier to absorb than trying to understand the slide alone. I thoroughly enjoyed the class, and feel that the concepts were well covered.

Great teacher, and a challenging but fun course!
I think he's a good professor and I liked the class a lot.
Justin was my first Biology professor. He introduced me to a lot of new topics that will help me achieve success throughout my college career. He's a caring, articulate teacher that cares about his students. I'm thankful for his knowledge and highly recommend him if you want to do well in Biology.
None
The course was really straight forward. The teacher emphasized the important aspects of the chapters.
I wish there were quizzes for every 4 chapters or so because having 9 chapters to be covered for one exam is a lot of material to cover. Along with a lot of time dedicated to just this class alone. Slides were flipped through at a rather fast pace making it difficult to hand write notes.
Course is pretty fair and straight forward.
Great course! I would recommend that everyone takes it from Dr. Walguarnery. I only had one year of basic biology in my freshman year of high school and I was still able to keep up in this course (thanks to the teaching).
Justin is super cool, but he is very hard to relate to. When questions were asked he seemed taken off-guard, and answered them only on a very surface level. It was hard to form a 'bond' with him as a teacher. I know it was an early morning class and it was huge, but I have had teachers that go the 'extra step' in the past and make it feel like you're coming to class for a reason. His exams are literally written from the power points and very simple - which is fine if you dont care and just want a grade, but it makes it feel kind of silly to be coming every day and paying for a course where you could just stay home and read the lectures online. All in all, Justin, step out, show some personality, make connections. It will do you good.
Justin is da bomb!!
* overall good course

I thought the professor was really knowledgeable. Although he repeated alot of concepts, I thought he went through material really fast. I did like that he was able to refer back to previous lectures to help us review and understand the concepts he was trying to get across. He was a really good professor overall!
I enjoyed the class and will be happy continuing biology.
The professor had a good knowledge of the subject, answered questions, and seemed to really enjoy his job.
Great teacher!
Professor is a rock star.
Great class. Went at a good pace where it did not bore people that already had a strong biology background but not too fast for those that have not taken Biology since the first semester of their freshman year in high school.
Good teacher for this intro class, would take a class from him again.
He is a great teacher
Justin is a good professor and I would take another course from him.
Great professor!:)
I would definitely take another class with this instructor again!
I enjoyed this class it's just I wish that I did well on my last two midterms!
I would suggest maybe going over the slides a little more slowly on the ones we have to copy down, cause sometimes I felt I didn't get to copy everything, and then we stayed on a slide that we didn't need to copy anything from for a long time...Also, maybe watch the time more so we won't be rushing slides in the last minute. Also, maybe put the grades up more on time...
N/A
n/a
Add more i-clicker questions. When Justin would go over the topics you thought you understood it, but when actually applying it to questions I would get confused. More i-clicker questions would have helped me determine if I actually understood the material as well as I thought I did.
Otherwise great teacher!!!
n/a
Include more iClicker questions during lecture.
My recommendation would be to possibly include questions from the homework on exams or eliminate the homework altogether because it didn't help very much.. Secondly, the entire semester made me second guess whether or not the material was sugar coated. I'm gearing up to take the MCAT in the summer and hope that key material was not skipped this semester! Other than that, Justin was well prepared and clearly knowledgeable of the course material. Definitley would recommend others to take this intro level Biology course from him!
While I can tell the professor made the way he grades the course so it would be easy for people to do well, I actually dont like the grading style. I think we should write papers as well. Basing so much on multiple choice is not really fair as sometimes the wording can be tricky, etc..
N/A
Great teacher! I hope he teaches other classes that I have to take down the road!
Keep up what you're doing! It's simple, easy to understand, and easy to follow.
Needs to update great regularly.

The exams are a little bit hard for me because the exam questions seem to be worded differently from how they were taught in the lecture.
Awesome teacher. I highly recommend him for any student.

Knows BIOLOGY very well
You should try to work on making a study guide and also your tone of voice. Your lectures are very interesting but keeping one tone of voice makes it very had to pay attention. other than that I truely like your lectures!
great teacher
Wish there was practice exams.
Monotonous at times
Great job to Professor Walguarnery.
I think he is a great teacher! I love his powerpoints and how easy they are to follow. Since the slides are posted on laulima, even if you miss a day, you can still know exactly what you missed in class. He made biology really interesting and easy to understand. His class was structured and very well organized, but it was only not boring in any way. I seriously wish he was my teacher for all my classes!
Course covers a lot of material. Tests are much harder than what is presented in the lectures. Just a simple study guide of what to focus on would help.

Great!

Justin makes himself open to help, he is willing to spend extra time with you for help.Overall, very good professor.
Great teacher
Some of the lectures were unorganized. His voice is very monotone. While he does answer some questions, most of his answers are not detailed and do not fully answer the question.
It was good
Justin is a little monotone and boring to listen to, but his thorough and intense knowledge of biology clearly makes up for that.
Class was well organized and Walguarnery was always available before/after class and at his office hours for help.
Overall great course
He is a great professor and knows exactly what he's talking about.
Justin is super smart and able to explain the concepts in ways that are easily understood. he is a very good professor
He's an excellent professor!

6. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I like how the information was backed by up to date research.
It's the first time I study zoology, it waas really interesting to study how life is complex and wonderfull. Mr Walguarnery well explain his classes and I was able to understand all of it even if I'm not bilinguish.
At the beginning of the course, the professor made known what other fields zoology was used in and the importance of studying zoology.
I thought the topics we covered were really interesting and the amount of information given for each one was perfect. I felt like I learned a good deal about a variety of topics in Zoology without being over/underwhelmed by any of them.
The basic understanding of zoology
I think Justin is a good teacher because he explains well, so I wasn't bored in class even though the subject can be boring. And also, he is nice and willing to help the students all the time. However, I think he is not really sociable, at least in class.
7. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
The coldness of the room
Knowing and studying all the small details of the cells and organisms within animals.
It would have been nice to have access to the Powerpoints before the lesson in which they were presented. The lectures were so fast-paced that it was difficult to take notes efficiently and having an idea of what the Powerpoints look like ahead of time would have been helpful.
The lectures were dry. In my opinion the lectures could have had some more videos to help illustrate abstract concepts that were covered in the material. There must be some sort of videos that helped illustrate process better than some of the diagrams shown. Also the use of a laserpointer would have been helpful, because there was many times where the professor was pointing at the projection screen but it was not clear what was being pointed at.
The lecture room was too big for the class. The class was awfully quiet the whole session. I felt bad for Justin, he must have been discouraged while teaching. And also, I wish Justin tried to do something to lighten the atmosphere. If we were in a small, cozy room, the atmosphere would have been a lot better.

17. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I know that there are time constraints regarding the length of the course but I would have liked more field research opportunities.
maybe add a field trip that has to do with fish or other animals. Definately keep the damselfly labs though, those were a lot of fun. (minus the mosquitoes)
Since we went to the stream twice, it might have been interesting to apply a mark and recapture population survey (or maybe it would be better to demonstrate with the anoles?). For the plant identification field trip, it would be fun and challenging to identify plants (that weren't already identified) with a dichotomous key. Also, the books given for the field trip didn't list any of my unidentified plants. Thus, it might be beneficial to use a different key.

22. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The field work that was simulated by collecting real data and using it as a means to show how scientists collect and use actual data for their studies.
One of the parts of the course that I really enjoyed was the field component. In lecture, Justin introduced us to various methods of carrying out an experiment(Mark-recapture,making descriptive field notes,using an ethogram to observe animal behaviors) and interpreting data (histograms, calculating the standard deviation and p-values, performing a t-test). In our field experiments, we practiced using these methods. Being able to practice what we learned in lecture helped me to understand the concepts better. Once a week, we would also have a class discussion on a journal article. I enjoyed these discussions because Justin would help us to understand parts of the article that were unclear about. We would also compare what we thought could be improved about the methodology of the experiments. It was interesting to see that all of us came up with different questions on the methodologies. That made me aware of some areas people might have questions about when I complete my own research project for BIOL 499.
I liked how he showed you his work that he did for his PhD, and showed us examples of what kind of things to expect if you want to go on to be a graduate student.
interesting and fun field trips and activities in a small group.
The field trips were great. Best way to demonstrate field study work is to go out in the field! I also liked the fact that lectures were available for reference throughout the course. Statistics are my weakest point when it comes to research, but Justin's explanations helped make concepts clearer and more defined for me. I also enjoyed the discussion sessions. It cleared up any questions I had and brought up other interesting points as well. The small class size made it easy to have discussions and also made it less intimidating to ask questions during class.

I would recommend this course to all of my colleagues who wish to enter into anything resembling field research.
I enjoyed this course. I would recommend it to other students.
this course should be a required course for all science majors. the information taught in this class is very useful and necessary for upper level biology courses. I'm disappointed that I took this class in the last semester of my undergrad education. it would have been very useful if I took it earlier. this was a very fun class and I recommend everyone take it. Justin is a great teacher who is willing to help and answer any questions. this was the best class I've taken at UH so far.
This is a great course! This course should be a requirement for anyone interested in doing field research. In fact, this course should be required as a pre-requisite for upper division science courses that involve research. One of the funnest courses I've taken at the University!

No improvements necessary. Justin did a wonderful job teaching this course. Refer to questions 22 and 24 for my comments on his teaching.
I would have liked to learn more about the techniques of capturing or the use of the tools used in biological fields.
overall a great teacher was a little quite in speaking though
Concepts involving physiology were great, but I think a little more help or information on sampling on the field would be very beneficial.

22. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed the excursions and Justin's explanations on the statistical methods. The excursions reinforced and allowed the students the opportunity to perform various methods collecting and quantifying data. For example, the trips to Tripler Stream allowed the students to mark and capture insects that in two different areas to determine the difference in the two populations. On another trip, the class was able to measure and quantify light measurements that were taken from the two areas (since light is suggested to have effects on the orientation and the amount of the species). Justin was also very knowledgeable of the various statistical methods that one could perform to determine the type of data one should obtain pending on the study. As a biology major at UH, I feel as though a lot of the undergraduate classes were not structured to apply these methods. Having a better understanding of how one would be able to implement these statistical methods, I am more confident on designing an experiment of my own for my directed research project. The peer-reviewed classic papers were also very important to the class. These papers seem extremely difficult to understand at first glance, however, through class discussion of questions that the class created, I am a little more at ease extracting important and relevant information from them.
I really enjoyed the Lab field trips!!!...Its not often we have labs off-campus. I also appreciate learning the different types of graphs and illustrations that biologists use.
I had a great time an easy guy to get along with
The lectures on taking data in the field, and later applying them during the labs. That was a great teaching tool.

24. Other comments:
Justin did a wonderful job teaching this course. I am very glad to have taken this field studies course because of its relevance to my major and employment goals. Currently, I am contemplating pursuing a masters of science degree (although I am unsure of which field it will be in). The statistical methods and hands-on experience with the at the different locations helped me better understand the methods and processes by which the scientific community deems acceptable and significant. Justin is an asset to this school and I look forward to taking another course with him.
Best summer class ever!!!....Hope to see you around campus!
I think the only thing that would truly make this course more effective is holding it during a term with a few more weeks in it. I believe that if the time frame allowed, this would be a very influential class for many people like me deciding on their career choice. Justin was an excellent instructor and has greatly increased my overall understanding of field studies. I'm certain that I will need to utilize the knowledge I've gained in this class at some point in my life. Mahalo nui loa!

he was a great teacher, really knowledgeable and made the class very interesting for me, I learned a lot from him, really smart guy
I found the small class size and open style of the course to be helpful. Justin was available for clarification in difficult topics and easy to talk to. The exams were pretty straight forward and the reviews helped me prepared for the exams. Since I'm a engineering major I was surprised to see how zoology is related and is used.
examples of explanation for the amount of information provided
9. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
Interacting with students, asking questions.
none
I thought that the least valuable thing about the course was that we went so fast through the material that I was not able to learn in detail about specific animals.
