11. Other comments:
She is fantastic and very much open-minded. The student does not feel intimidation, an obstacle that many students face in seminars. She has the crucial element that is both necessary and prized in educators: the ability to listen and encourage participation.
Thank you for teaching me this semester! (:

7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Everything!
Conducting an actual needs assessment was very valuable. I also appreciated how students who took the course previously came back to present their needs assessment projects. It was also very helpful to have fieldwork days to have class time to work on our needs assessment.
The actual project of doing a needs assessment and trying to use what was learnt in class to apply while working on the project.

13. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
It would be helpful if she would be clearer in what is expected in the projects, etc. It seems that not everyone realizes that what she is saying is valuable.
Although feedback was given to edit and strength the sections of the paper submitted, it was not clear from the guidelines provided as to what was expected. It is sometimes difficult to understand and draw parallels between the guidelines and how those guidelines apply to any specific needs assessment.
It was very hard to determine what exactly she wanted from the papers given the specificity of all of our projects. More clarity is needed in instructions.
Much of the course content was devoid of examples, and the assignements we did in groups in class were very boring. The professor typing our comments on powerpoint in class is not a good use of time, and we don't learn from it. It actually takes away from conversation and flow.
14. Class assignments provided an effective aid for learning the subject matter.

16. Other comments:
It is important to emphasize what chapters to read every week in the book... it seems that I got a copy for nothing. All the handouts and extra resources would have been sufficient. Overall, I like Dr. Sy. I am happy to be in her class.
