10. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The homework assignments where we had to go in front of the class for quick speeches.
I really enjoyed how much we learned about speaking and human interaction.. Many of the things we learned in this course are applicable to everyday life which was a huge bonus!
I felt that learning about group dynamics was very useful. I have to work in groups a lot. I feel like I will be more effective with my new knowledge.
I really enjoyed learning about how people communicate with their body language more than vocally saying something. I found everything involved in this course as valuable. I taught us skills we would be able to use for our future careers.
The homework and projects that Aili had us do were the most valuable to me. The assignments helped me to get a working knowledge of the concepts she taught us.
I feel that communication in general was a valuable aspect of this course. I learned how to communicate better with my family, friends, classmates, and myself. I feel like I will do good in interviews now that I know how to communicate effectively.
I thought her lectures were really helpful. Matching them with the book was a good reinforcer for the new concepts, especially when she played clips.
No comment
We learned many things such as ways to give an effective interview and ways ti give an effective speech.
The interviewing homework was the most valuable and all of the interesting concepts learned within the course.
11. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
The paper on the five stages of coming together and coming apart.
I found this course to be very enjoyable, I guess the only thing I didnt like so much was that we had a final speech and then a final test one after another.. made it kind of tough to cram in the last week
Everything that was not valuable to me, was interesting. So everything in the class was either useful or interesting.
I honestly don't think any part of the course was the least valuable. Each aspect built on top of one another to help ensure we had a working knowledge of the material and was able to translate it to the real world.
Since communication is important and in our everyday lives I feel that all aspects in this course were equally important.
Honestly, I feel like since we had so little time, Aili put all of our time to really good use, with there being some point behind everything we did.

I felt that the material involving romantic communication was least valuable
Some of the theories and off tangent conversations were the least valuable in this course.

18. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Everything
Very enthusiastic about public speaking.. She is fun and defiantly one of my favorite professors ive had thus far, makes lectures interesting with her abundant energy and passion about the course!
She asks us if we understand, and changes her working until you understand.
She always came to class with a great attitude and she always makes time to talk to her students. She is great with emails because she replies back really fast which is something not a lot of professors do.
Aili has a warm personality that makes her easy to talk to and approach when I needed help. She can also relate to her students very well which also makes it easier to learn.
You explain everything by giving definitions and your own examples. Your powerpoints are clear and you always put them up on Laulima. You try to get the class to give their own examples of different terms, even if our class barely spoke.
She's so friendly and enthusiastic!
She was articulate, enthusiastic, and understanding. She didn't dumb anything down and held us to a high standard. She efficiently and effectively used all the class time each day.
She was very easy to contact and responded quick with emails
She is very enthusiastic when it comes to her work and class.
19. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
Really have no complaints about her teaching style.. Only possible suggestion is that she goes through material very fast sometimes but that was perhaps due to the fact that this course was during the shortened summer term
I found nothing least valuable.
Nothing.
Sometimes you talk a little fast and since it was a summer course everything was jammed together.
The late postings of the lectures before class, seeing as I usually leave around when she usually posts the lectures.

21. Other comments:
Great class, but I didn't enjoy the persuasive speech topic because we had to choose an organization to support. I thought this was too narrow and made it hard to choose a topic. I wanted to do a speech on something I would have enjoyed talking about. I think it would have made all the speeches more interesting.
Thank you for a great term! Wish you weren't leaving so I could take another course taught by you! Enjoy your next job where ever it may be -Travis
Why is this survey so negative? It seems weird that you have questions specifically asking for faults about your teacher or the class. You should phrase your questions neutrally.
She is a great professor and she makes this course enjoyable and fun.
Great job Aili! I'm going to miss you!
I really really enjoyed this class!
