7. What did you like best about the course?
I liked the open discussions that took place that allowed everyone to speak. I always find it refreshing to hear other peoples point of view, especially when trying to learn about innovation and creativity. Not a very structured course, but in this case that was a good thing. Entrepreneurship and creativity by nature cannot be structured.
I liked having the opportunity to learn from classmates as well as from the professor. I appreciate the freedom of choosing the book of your choice for the course. Also, book presentations were very interesting and informative.
Flexibility, freedom to tailor the curriculum to your own specific interests. Definitely changed my perspective on creativity. Would highly recommend this course to others!
Everything
I really liked how the course was open-ended and more discussion based, as opposed to assignment based courses I've encountered in the past. Overall, Prof. Rosegg is a great teacher and I really feel more knowledgeable when it comes to creative/innovative thinking. Great class, great professor, and an overall great vibe.
Open discussions and in class activities to keep students engaged. Class is not too focused into textbook concepts but more of an open environment to stimulate creativity and share ideas among classmates and class.
This is the most enjoyable class I ever had. I have been busy for work, school, kids. Hardly have chance to site down discuss about my creative ideas, my business plans...After this class,I realized that so long I believe, I still can be creative.
The in-class exercises were quite interesting and, I think, worked to actually show us how to potentially be more creative and innovative. Peter's knowledge of the creative process was also evident, so his lectures were actually very interesting and engaging. His PPTs were well done, clear, fun, and drew on multimedia enough to hold our attention. Overall, Peter is a great guy -- humorous, extremely intelligent, and approachable -- and the fact that he simply taught this class was my favorite aspect of it! Oh! - I like that Peter actually calls on people randomly. Most professors these days seems to be chicken to do that, but I think it's great. :)
It was very interactive and applied to real life. It was motivating and every student had the opportunity to say their ideas and add input to the class.
8. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I think the course was great.
Would've liked to be able to hear from guest speakers, but I understand the challenge of scheduling during the summer.
It was all good.
A more detailed syllabus so students know what to expect.
I really enjoyed his class, the case studies, excises... Not sure what could be improved at this moment.
The class -- as taught in the summer -- might be too short for it, but I think a textbook might be helpful in providing some basic information on the history of creativity research, theories, etc. Also, a bit more on entrepreneurship would have been welcome. Like I said, the creativity exercises were great but if we did them through the lens of being potential entrepreneurs, I think that would have been very effective. Finally, for the class assignments where Peter wanted us to bring an idea or ideas to the next class, perhaps he wants to require them to be written out and turned it... a couple of class discussions sort of sputtered because I think some people didn't do the assignment. This would be a way to ensure more participation and, hence, livelier discussions! :)
Now that we know which books are good and bad, I think he can start creating a book list for next semesters students. He did many, but even a greater number of creative exercises would be fun and beneficial for the class.

25. Other comments:
Overall, a great class. I will definitely recommend this class to my peers!
A fun and interesting class which I think is important because that is what really draws student into learning and absorbing the concepts and theories. Does not really follow the traditional approach of how many professors picks a textbook and just follow through it chapter by chapter. This class is more active, full of discussions, and more on reading current events and articles.
For this class, there is no right or wrong answer. THerefore, grades does not apply. But, he provids comments after each of our presentations. The comments are fairly and impartially.
Great class! This subject I think is very applicable to business students who want to do new things and perhaps work in a start-up.

8. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I enjoyed the example scenarios in class that we would go over
Relating bad ethics to news stories that we're familiar with.
How to aks ourselves the right questions when faced with an ethical decision.
That participation was so the most important aspect of the class. I got to gain perspectives of other students in the process of learning the material.
The huge platter of information and knowledge on media ethics, media careers, etc. Class debates and discussions on various topics both media-related and internal conflicts.
There were a few things I found really valuable about this class, I think the entire class was based more on "the business" than a standard class based on numbers, memorizing facts and people. Guest speakers gave really sound advice on the business of journalism, blogging, and public relations. I really enjoyed the class discussions we had, Rosegg encouraged each student to contribute to group discussions which was very nice.
I thought the field trip was the most valuable because we got to see how this type of field really works.
Potter's Box! Very useful tool and such.
Seeing others perspectives and approaches when handling specific issues. It gave a broader view on things and showed that there are many choices to choose from..whether or not they are ethical or only partially so..or not at all.
The multiple points of coverage and view when it comes to media ethics. Looking at it from both the Journalism and PR sides. Especially since the class is cross listed and required for both Journalism and Communications students. Having an instructor with real world and current working experience (like so many in the Journalism department).
The discussions of the various situations were really valuable to me. It got me to thinking what kind of decisions would I make if I were in that situation. It was good too because we got to hear our classmates' different opinions about how they would handle it.
Understanding the differences with journalist and public relations positions.
I feel that the Media Ethics course was valuable because as a journalism student aspiring to break into the field of news media this information is essential to understanding the ethics from a different lens. I liked the fact that the class was not a writing intensive and that the course was dominantly a discussion class amongst the students rather than a pure lecture - type of class. Also I liked the fact that the class did not have any formal written exams or presentations. I feel that the course's strong aspect is the cooperation amongst the students that make the course interesting. Rosegg was the facilitator in the discussions in the class and the students were the ones to make their claims. I feel that the course was one of the more relaxed ones and also the critical thinking was encouraged which made this course more diverse than my other journalism elective.
9. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
probably the book reviews?
I think that the textbook was unnecessary with this course. As a student whose paychecks go directly to books I could have done without spending the $60 on a book barely discussed in class. Topics discussed in the books could be easily added to the curriculum without actually needing to own the book.
The least valuable was the long class discussions where we didn't interact as much.
Probably a few lectures about the differences between journalism and PR. It was informative, but not really the most valuable thing I got out of this class.
The book reviews. Most students have full-time or MORE schedules..there wasn't enough time to read two whole books in the times given for each while maintaining obligations to everything else we must do for all of our classes.
The book? If more reading was assigned I'd feel it was worth it. I enjoyed the reading and would of course rather have less than more.
Nothing!
Ethical issues that were the same but talked about again.

15. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
More debates and discussions? Can't think of anything to improve, course seems solid in my opinion.
I don't have a lot of suggestions, I was pretty happy with the entire course. However, as much as I can respect the whole concept of "no grades" throughout the entire semester, numerous times did I find myself getting very nervous about how I was doing in the class. I hate to be a grade grubber, but at least a check, check plus or check minus system would let students know if they are on the right track.
I think having more of the group discussions where we learn about the situations and how to deal with it was interesting.
Uhhh...I actually kind of like it. I like having to interact and discuss things.
Maybe some in class activities incorporated with the discussion that would be graded.
Iʻd take attendance regularly. Yeah it sucks up the first 5 min of class time, but too many people (who will probably push for higher grades) didn't show up to enough classes in my opinion. I found myself getting lazy at one part of the semester. But it's such a fascinating subject (at least to me) that while my interest was enough to gain my attendance most of the time it was not that way for many. The course time was late, but more than acceptable. Just don't hold it any later in the day.
N/a
To keep informed on current issues and explain how they are relevant.
I feel that the course was conducted well be professor Rosegg. The only issue that I have is not knowing how well I am actually doing in the class throughout the semester, it will be a surprise to me as to what letter grade will be given.

19. Other comments:
This course is immensely informative. There is so much information and things to learn in this class. Probably one of THE most beneficial and memorable classes I've taken so far in all of my semesters at UH. It's as if Peter pretty much prepares or explains to students what to expect when they go out in the real world of journalism and/or public relations. There is so much to learn and all of it is so interesting and so helpful.
Too bad the class wasn't smaller and I couldn't do even more contributing. I loved this class with this instructor.
I think some very interesting topics were discussed in the classroom. One of the other things I liked was how we did a little investigation on notable journalists who derailed from ethical standards. Decision-making was a key element in the nature of the course which was something that PR professionals and journalists must face daily when covering stories and of course the controversial ones were the toughest to tackle.
