13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
beeing a good one, of course..
Dr. Gross was very approachable outside of the classroom. His teaching techniques were very engaging and informative. I was motivated to do further research outside of class on topics he had presented. Dr. Gross is extremely approachable and willing to supply any extra information requested.
He teaches very weell, also he uses many videos for class. So students can understand easily.
He was a funny teacherthat was enthusiastic about his work
Professor Gross provided a very easy-going, natural environment. This made it easy for students to get involved in discussions or ask questions.
the way he taught was interesting
Very funny guy, great to when he's teaching, especially with his accent. As the semester went on, he got to know each student's personality and greatly adapted his teaching strategy for us based on how we were during class, which was pretty cool. Brings in people within the subject field, who are great people to help him teach certain aspects of the subject. Also had an online component to help with teaching, which sort of helped with the test. Also included extra credit.
He knows the subject and is fair in grading
He explains the information very well. He encourages people to read and is always willing to help and encourage students to work harder and has helpful tips.

teaching and explaining the materials in class

He is active in class and presents a calming environment.
I like how Professor Gross lectures and how he encourages student participation. He uses very real examples that students can relate to. I also like how he addresses each question from students even if it takes a while to answer.
letting us think
He was one of my best teachers as well!!! He created such a good environment for learning! He would talk and give example as well as let the students participate and giving their opinion or say in the matter and all the students were very actively participating in his class. This class was so interesting but very fun! very effective!! I loved this class!
Professor Gross knows a lot about psychology and it's interesting learning about psychology from. Also I like the activities and things we learn in class. He also shared how he became a psychology professor and his past experiences in the psychology field.

Great knowledge of the field, going in to depth very well on the subject in class.
knowing the material he taught
his experiance of the subject
Dr. Gross obviously has excellent knowledge of the subject.
giving demonstrations.
I feel that Dr. Gross's major stregnths are his abilities to communitcate well with the students and explain complicated theories in ways that are easy to understand.
Knows the subject he is teaching very well.
He was encouraging discussions within the class so there was a better understanding of the curriculum
He loves the subject and he loves helping students to become interested in the subject as well. He proposes new ideas and perspectives and has the class discuss.
The major strengths of Philippe Gross as a teacher was his vast knowledge of Psychology and his examples were way me clear than the ones that were in the book. Also, that he showed us videos every so often that made it easier to understand the theories that we were learning.

He is great teacher that could explain life related things.I learned a lot in this class.
Mr. gross's strengths would be that he knows the subject well as well as different case studies that others might question. another strength would be that he was once a student so he tries to implement different learing techniques.

Knew his information.
provided very interactive classes
his major strengths as a teacher is how detailed he is in all his lectures.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none, I have no place...
The tests are cover a lot of information, he could be a little more specifiic on what to study. I enjoyed the challenge though.
To make tests more reasonable
He might be able to help students perform more successfully if the lectures were more consistent with the book. It would probably help to have an outline of the day's lecture on a powerpoint or on the board, and then teach accordingly to the outline. By doing this, lessons will be much more organized and students are able to take organized notes that will help them on the exams. Students will do well because they are tested on what they are taught directly from the professor; not just reading from the book.
probably he can be more clear on working
Some of the test questions were pretty confusing, practice test's just like the real test would be helpful.
The tests were a bit hard because of the examples given for some of the queestions.
-More organization -Take time to go over upcoming assignments: expectations and due dates with more clarity -Less meditation
Be more involved with your students. I felt at times he didn't show concern when I was confused on an assignment.
no.
Nothing, he's a great instructor.
maybe have more assignments in class to help better understand each chapter, because just reading doesn't help that much when it comes to exams.
A lot of assignments were very unclear and hard to understand and comprehend
None
Make tests more objective (less wordy).
keep doin what your doin one of the top three teachers i have ever had.
Go into deep information.
None
More structured lectures would help students to take in information more clearly.
Make a better study guide. The test are really confusing.
None.
have a better plan of attack
I don't have any suggestions.
be more available outside of class
The tests at the library were not what I expected and hard to understand.
Nothing
no change
the only thing that I would suggest Philippe to change is the way the tests/exams are taken. I would rather take an exam in class than to go to the testing center, because some tests had words that we (students) didn't know which throws off the whole question.
-Go over assignments better, I was confused most of the time because the second day we're told we have this big assignment to do. But then we never really talk about it much again. It was a really messy experience. -Make the test questions yourself or be available in the room to clarify them. The questions are presented in a way that wasn't very easy to understand. Some didn't seem as if we had a well enough discussion in class to really grasp certain areas. And it was reflected clearly in the test grades. -
Making the tests a little more understandable.
less french, little hard to understand
I suggest that maybe he make up the tests instead of using the standard test. Some of the wording of the questions is quite confusing even if you now the material. Because the test is taken it in the testing center, there is no way for a student to get clarification on what the question is asking.
send us the links to the videos before class to watch and discuss later. feels like we just go to class to watch videos. also make students get more serious on group projects... it's really hard to do alone most of the time.
Class seemed very unorganized at the beginning but it was just because most assignments was due toward the second half of the semester. So looking at it now it actually is very organized.
The way the test questions were worded was an issue but I'm not sure what could be done to help that. The study guides were extremely helpful though.
I suggest that if possible the tests on Laulima can be revised in a way where the test questions can be more clear. Often times my classmates and I had a misunderstanding of many questions that were on the test.
using power point presentation for lectures and the educational psychological videos was good
The exams were a little difficult with so many questions.
None
I hope that Professor Gross will not let students take over his class. Although he is a wonderful teacher and very nice stand your ground and ask them to politely to keep your comments to themselves until the end of your lecture.
Better control of the class. My classmates would try and talk at the same time, especially during discussions and activities. More guidelines for the collaborative paper and presentation to make sure each person in the group is not left out and shown respect (especially when they disagree). Another possibility would be to allow classmates/group members to discuss the plan for the paper and presentation during class time.
i understand that this was his first semester teaching, and so there was a lot of things that i have done in this class that i didn't do in my other classes. the class got out of control at times and the students were always putting in their two cent comments. he should let them know that he is the professor and not them.
Tests.
one thing i think he could improve on would be the way he makes the test questions. He used the question bank from the publisher, but when we took the test what we were told to study wasnt really reflected on the test. another thing he could work on would be controlling class discussions and lectures. there are times when certain students like to ask questions that may take us off topic or cut him off in the middle of an explanation, therefore out questions or his point doesnt get made. I would like to see him able to put his foot down, becase sometimes material doesnt get discussed/covered because we went off topic.
Don't allow overly-opinionated students to dominate learning time in the classroom. One big issue I had was too many students wanted to voice their opinions when it wasn't necessary. They just wanted to comment on everything and it got to the point where every topic became a debate.
Shorten the due dates with severe repurcussions for late/incomplete work. I believe deadlines are important.
More assignments maybe, so that students may practice what they have learned and it would help prepare for tests.
I think that there should be more activities that will help students to interact better. The only chance that I've encountered was to work with groups in a group project and the more recent, doing a role-playing activity. I think that by doing group activities help students to understand more about themselves as a person and as a contributor in the group. After all, this is a psychology class. Some students would also prefer or learn better with visual aid (like myself). Therefore, I suggest that Gross should also include powerpoints AS MUCH as he provided videos for us to watch. Sometimes, it was really hard to follow along with the lectures considering the marker ran out of ink and what not. With regards to the tests, I suggest that Gross go over each answer. Although, he mentioned he would print out some kind of answer sheet to go over with the class, he didn't get around to reviewing it with us. It wasn't enough that I know my score but rather, I know the reason why my answer was wrong.
None
None
He should make the tests more easier to comprehend.
Try to have a more organized schedule
Writing more notes on the board for tests.
it could've been his accent that got me confused with assignments
maybe make the tests shorter, involving less chapters in one test.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
kept consistent contact via e-mails.. and really put effort in helping students out instead of pointing us in another direction.
He shows great concern for students. I requested information on meditation and he provided me with a plethora of resources and insight. During our group projects, I approached him with concerns of inactive group members. He approched them in a respective manner and I saw a drastic improvements int their contributions. (He motivates students)
He gave many chance for students who didn't follow his class for extra credits as well as he has careful concern to all students.
He was leneient with his deadlines
He constantly recommended doing the extra online course help that came with the textbook and he asked students if there was anything that they wanted him to go over again.
he shared his opinion to class
Encourages people to read the text and do the online component a bit. Always wants students to participate in exercises and express their views on certain topics for very interesting discussions.
generous with extra credit assignments
He encourage students to extra information which turned out to be very helpful and gave a different approach to the topic if you didn't understand as well.

He's nice to them.
He made sure we understood the material and even provided us with "Study Guides" before each exam. I was able to email him regarding our group project and many students have stayed after class to ask him questions.
he cares
He would talk to us after class or in office hours or via email. Very helpful teacher! He would let us talk and say our opinion and debate in class so we can learn how psychology works and effects everyone by perspectives as well. I learned a lot about people and myself from this class.
He answered questions in class. He was also there when I questions after class and he took the time to answer my questions. Thank you.
he would answer any questions that were asked and gave us plenty extra credit to make up for low test scores or missing assignments
Always checking our work.
he was always happy, and answered all of our questions.
he showed concern for the students by provided office hours so that if you missed a lecture, you will be able to sit in his office and he will go over anything that you had missed.
His mini quiz he had in class to see if people were getting the concepts

Giving extra help!
Took the time to meet with students if they should have any questions, concerns, and problems. He gave me some problem-solving suggestions.
he adjusts his exams according to the class averages.
Contacted them in case they are not attending
when we reported to him that the test questions did correlate with the book or the online study questions, he wanted us to let him know which test questions we had trouble with and he went back and either gave us credit for it or took it out.
He created study guides that were very helpful to students.
He always interacted with us.
curved the tests generously and gave us many opportunities to add to or improve our grades.
Emailed us extra credit opportunities and emailed us about missing assignments/grades
One example of how he demonstrated concern was helping out the students in the group project. My fellow classmates and myself would go directly to him for help after class and or during office hours if we didn't understand a certain project/material, etc... He would explain to us if we didn't understand it and asked us again if we still didn't understand it.
He made sure to email me if I missed any days and let me know what had to be done.
On the exams he gave us plenty time to complete and study guides to help us. He was understanding about our test scores. He let us do an assignment over instead or giving us a bad grade. He posted our grades throughout the semester. Corresponding regularly thru email. Offered a lot of chances for extra credit . Used props and games to help us learn

answered questions out of classes promptly.
he would answer our questions if we had any. he make compromises with the students.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, because you don't come accross teachers that are here for students and not just a pay check everyday. he wants to teach..
Absolutely, I would recommend Dr. Gross to every student attending KCC. His class is extremely facinating and somewhate challenging. He goes the extra mile to ensure his students suceed.
Yes, you can learn PSY very effectively.
Yes, he is a good teacher
I would recommend this professor because the class is pretty straightforward. All that must be done is to read the book, take the exams, and do the papers.
yes, interesting
He's a great guy, but as far as I know, in my class, everyone has a hard time with the tests so that part might be iffy for average people.
yes, he is fun and knowledgeable
I would recommend Philippe Gross to other student because he is fair and very helpful. He gives examples in class in which people can relate to a lot. He is always there to help a studnent in need of help and tries his best to work with them.
Sure, easy grader and kept class interesting
50/50
yes, cause he is one of good and kind instructor.
yes, he is a fun teacher and really knows his stuff.
no because his course was difficult to understand and found assignments pointless
Yes. Clear and helpful teacher, very knowledgeable.
I would, whether they're particularly interested in the subject or not. He made what I thought would be a dull class exciting while still teaching us all the information.
Yes, because at the very least he will teach students how to be passionate and enjoy what ever it is they choose to pursue.
yes because he doesn't teach by just lecturing, he gets the class involved and gives so much reality examples that makes you feel like you're there so the learning process is much more fun that boring lectures.
yes i would recommend him to other students because he is cool and fair
YES. It is his first semester teaching full-time and I believe it will only get better.
I suppose so, he is a really nice teacher. He makes the class fun.
Yes. It was the most enjoyable Psychology class I have ever taken. He makes the material easier to understand and absorb.
yes, his class is a good starting point
yes!! He was a very good teacher and I am so glad I took him for this class! He created such a comfortable atmosphere and such a great, funny, humorous teacher!
I would recommend professor Gross because he teaches psychology well and I enjoying his class while learning about psychology. He makes people interested in psychology.
Yes if you are going into psychology he is the man.
I would recommend Philippe Gross to everybody who has (or want ) to take psychology because at the beginning of the semester I thought that psychology was boring and hard and with him it was fun and clear.
Yeah
i would recommend him because he is enthusiastic and loves to teach. he has a cool french accent that i now can understand.
I would kind of recommend Philippe Gross to other students, it's just that his accent is a little strong and is sometimes confusing about what he is talking about at certain times.
Yes I would, Philippe Gross was a great instructor in class, but he may have gone too deep in certain subjects and didn't provide a vast overview of chapters. This was great, but made the tests harder.
yes made me want to come to learn more
I would recommend Dr. Gross to other students because before this class, I had no idea of what I want to go into. Now I am almost positive that I want to go into something to do with psychology.
yes, very friendly and always offers to help.
Yes, because his teaching style is very affective!
Yes, because he helps give you a good understanding of psychology.
yes of course, he made Psych easy to understand
Yes, he makes the course very interesting
Yes, I would recommend Philippe Gross to students who are interested in learning about how Psychology and need it an elective.
neutral
Absolutely.
Yes, fun and great experience. Best class ever!!
I would definitely recommend Professor Gross to other colleagues.
It depends on the student. If the student likes hands-on, visual (videos in class) and class discussions/activities; than yes. The class also goes really quickly and keeping up with the reading can be difficult. Per chapter and lecture, he doesn't cover everything from the textbook. If you enjoy psychology its very helpful, otherwise you might find the course slow and boring at times. He has a French accent which makes some words difficult to understand, but he's funny.
it depends what kind of learner the student is... for myself i would have been better off taking this class online. overall i wouldn't recommend or not recommend him.
Yes I would recommend him for sure.
I would reccomend him to other students because he knows his stuff and he tries his best to make it fun and not boring.
Yes, because he explains the material very well.
Yes because he's a good psych teacher.
Very much, as he is an informative professor who is able to teach his subject in a coherent effective manner.
Yes, all in all he is a good teacher.
As opposed to professors who heavily teach on academic aspects of the material, Gross did the latter. He would go beyond the academic part and reach students on the emotional level. I liked that towards the end of (some days in) class, he would help us meditate. However, this wasn't enough. I still feel that since Psychology covers a lot of theories and what not, it is still important to help us understand the concepts. I wouldn't recommend Gross to students who are not prepared to read the chapters beforehand. Throughout the semester, I read a few pages in the beginning but lacked motivation to thoroughly read till the end. So when I got to class, Gross would be lecturing on something I half-understood.
Yes because he was a very inspiring teacher and made the learning enviornment very fun.
Absolutelyhes awesome fun knowledgeable
Yes, he is very easy to learn from and is very fun!
Yes, very fun class and lectures.
yes, because class sessions are more than just lectures.
Not sure because of the fact it all depends on the person im talking to is interested in taking a psych class.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
He is great guy. I've approached him multiple times outside of class, he's very fun to talk to.
thanky ou very much for your support
Funny guy, friendly and accessible for people, and adapts with students as time goes on, so we pay a bit more attention.
Nice guy.
Needs to be more organized especially about expectations with the group project.
He was funny.
not thing else.
Gross is someone who will give you a lot of understanding with the course.
humorous teacher, has great lectures and fun activities in class.
Thanks him for his efforts to prepare classes for us.
He's a nice guy and relates to his students very well.
He has a very open class which I think is fantastic, it gives everyone plenty of chance to get involved in class which makes it more fun but also I think students can learn from other students just as well as they can learn from professors which maximizes learning effectiveness.
Thank you so much!
he did a good job throughout the semester and he dealt with us really well
He's funny.
He's a very nice guy.
try to make it a little more ... fun ... no, maybe just think of more ways to get the students involved
Thank you professor Gross for helping me learn more about psychology and I think this class also helps with deal with life. I have learned about empathic listening though I still have to work on it and practice it.
Awesome accent.
Papers and presentation are not very hard if you come to class, I really enjoyed this semester with him.
He is good at explaining things.
best accent ever. comes across very friendly and give lots of extra credit!
Philippe Gross is actually a well-organized instructor and very kind and considerate.
na
funny and enjoyed him as a teacher
HE IS GREAT!
If he could review the book material a little more in detail since the tests are based only on book material.
He is a very good teacher and easy to talk too
He stated at the beginning of the semester that he would be going over the meatier subjects in the book but that ultimately we were responsible for the entire chapter when taking the exams. I made a mental note of this and made a point of studying the book and using connect but I think some students didn't really "hear" him since it was the beginning of the semester and everyone was working on getting their schedules settled, etc. He might want to remind students of that more so that that first exam isn't an "eye opener"
N/A
I had a great time in his class.
Thank you so much, I appreciate the great experience and I know more about the path my life will take.
Also, regarding the test I felt that I had difficulty understanding certain question Im not sure if its because I didn't comprehend it well. Sorry! Just a concern.
Helpful and great teacher
He can teach you alot.
Wish he could be my teacher next semester!
I would take all of his offered classes if I had time
He is a new teacher, and very nice and helpful
please present sample questions of the exams prior to them, because many of the questions were not always understandable, especially with psychology concepts.
He has a good sense of humor and he relates his lectures to what we most commonly know about.
18. Other comments:
have a great summer MR. Gross..
I loved taking this class. I intend on taking more of his courses.
Professor Gross has humor when he teaches. Also, rather than just teaching the course material, he teaches lessons that can be used in life. [i.e controlling emotions, relieving stress, meditation, respect, etc]
nope
Thank you
I felt that the presentations were unnecessary for the project and should be taken out in the future. Most of the groups BSd their presentations and were very poor. It just seemed like a waste of time
no other comment.
thanks for a great semester!!
Have fun teaching future students!
none
There were students who were not aware of due dates and guidelines for assignments however, he made them very clear through written and posted documents. He was very concerned about it and I appreciate that. He was much more clear and concise about his expectations than most teachers, but it was in writing rather than spoken during class. Many students need both.
na
N/A
Thanks for your time and the great experience. Mahalo
Thank you for everything!
I liked that the test wasn't timed and that Gross provided study guides cause a lot of the chapters cover a lot of theories/concepts and other definitions that would be really hard to remember. I also liked that the test had a lot of questions. But it was difficult to answer some cause some of the statements were really tricky and I thought that it could be either answers presented but it may just've been me who didn't really study that much.
GOOD TEACHER!
i'd take the class again.
NONE
