Brief Review
20. What do you think of the teacher and his/her teaching methods?
I believe the instructor was fair at everything she did. She did her best to prepare us for the test prior to it. She would give us examples. I do believe her teaching method was very good.
Very clear, articulate and made abstract concepts much more easy to understand.
I like Roberta's style of teaching.
one of my favorite teachers. everything was really good
i think roberta is wonderful as a teacher and a person, she allows students to learn certain concepts on their own, which is the best way to learn sometimes.
good
great! Shes the best.
Sometimes very vague....her labwork instructions were not clear.
she explained everything and always answered our ?'s
Great. It was easy to understand. If you did not get it, she would keep telling you until you got it. Always nice and well liked by everyone in the class.
Well

It would help the teacher and students if there were more designated space for each class so that one teacher and their class could have their own particular area.
none
If I had to grade her I would give her an A+
Good teacher....gives chances to bring out the best in you!
Great teacher I would take her agian. She is well known now to everyone as a easy going teacher who cares if you know the material. If not, she will help you. One of the best teachers that I have had through out the years of my college life.

The course was taught in the best possible way.
Everything was okay.
I would have been more prepared for course and instruction. I personally sometimes felt that she paid attention to just a few in the front row & the rest of the class was left on there own.
Slow down a little to allow some time ( 15-20 seconds) between material to allow us to absorb the information. Especially the more complicated material.
I really liked the way Roberta taught our microbiology lecture. I might not change anything, except maybe having more visuals on her power point presentations? I'm pretty hardcore about visuals---I know she is too because she brought many different exampl
nothing
Slow down while teaching. Leave a little room for student comment, questions.
send powerpoint or other things on time and not an hour before class start
I would grade the presentations on complete/ incomplete. I dont think people should be graded on public speaking or presentation effectiveness
Everything!
Nothing, she was great
nothing. i liked it all
i would no change anything. i liked how roberta taught with the power points but also lectured to clarify complicated ideas,and also realted topics to her own personal experience.
The only thing I would have like was for the class session to be a little bit longer -- perhaps by 15 minutes. Sometimes it felt a bit rushed because of our time constraints.
nothing she did a good job.
The class was taught very well and there's nothing I would change.
I would leave it as is.
maybe give more homework.
Nothing everything has exceeded my expectations
If I was to teach the class I would have the students read alot more from the text.
I wouldn't change anything or make any improvements

If I was teaching this course, I would just make the classes longer.

Excellent. She was able to teach us using simple layman's terms, which helped me understand our complex textbook!
very well prepared, and clear.
It was very easy to understand.
She is the perfect example of a great instructor. She gave clear and concise instructions and lectures and the course content was completely relevant.
i liked it. it was effective, and helped me understand subject matter well.
I enjoyed having her give us the powerpoint because it helps me to understand the text better.
Its good the lectures are great to listen to
i think Roberta is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable instructor

The instructor made diffacult material much more easy to understand and emphasized the most important points thouroughly.
Excellent instructor. Direct info and right to the point.
Enjoyed the course exams could have been more challenging and could have been more prepared for instruction. Other than that it was a great class.
I enjoyed taking my microbiology course with Roberta. Even though microbiology is a prerequisite for the nursing program I still would've taken this class with Roberta. I feel this class broadened my knowledge greatly on the different microorganisms that

personally i am more comfortable speaking in front of the class and learned that every class you enter is like a family. everyone learns from eachother and can help others in need.
I already had some experience with this stuff before, but it was nice to go into depth about this things.
It made me have a better sense of awareness of the environment which we live in, and also it's impact on our health.
knowing all the bacteria that is growing all around us.
Through the presentations that everyone did the class, I learned a great deal and has made me aware of how to hanle things we take for granted in our every day life.
A new found knowledge and understanding of cells, their functions and microbes, DNA, aseptic techniques that will help me excel in the nursing field.
it helped me understand new things about bacteria. and i think it will be beneficial to my major.
I learned about different microorganisms and how some could be beneficial and some can be bad. I learned a lot of new information that will defintely help in my daily life.
The information about pathongens and diseases. I can relate this to the medicle field.
i learned how much this field of study applies to everyday life
I know what is out there that can potentially harm me.
I learned how to work better with others, especially not knowing them. Ive learned many different skills that could be useful in the future.
i learned my learning and study habits and how i should improve them
I have learned of the other world that has always existed..that is the world of Microbiology. I am more aware of my surrounding, the environment and what other microbes are out there that we should know about.

45. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great instructor that is very interested in students learning.
she is an excellent instructor. I would take another class from her.
I think she was well oriented in the subject matter, however she could have been more organized for class instruction. I would have liked exams to be more challenging.
She did a very good job!
Roberta is a very good teacher who knows her business. She should continue teaching because of her different teaching tatics which prove she enjoys what she does.
A+
GOOD
very good
She just didn't help me learn anything, infact when we asked for help she would tell us to do whatever and just focus on her favorite students!!!
I thought she was great, she knew the information that was being talked about. She didnt need the textbook. I always thought about how does she have the time and energy to do all of these things because I am in four of her classes. She made it through thi
she needs a raise!
This class was straight-forward and easy to follow. I enjoyed how she was able to simplify difficult concepts for us in ways that allowed us to grasp the point.
roberta is a good teacher who although is strict and clear with her standards, is also personable, helpful and understanding to all students.
I think the instuctor did a very good job. She was very informative and made sure that we tried to do our best. She knew what we were capable of and it was inspiring.
I would highly recommend this class with this instructor. Science was never an interesting topic to me until I enrolled in this course. Much appreciated.
over all the professor knew what she was talking about and she made it very interesting for us to learn.
A+
She is an asset to this school. She is the perfect example of a great instructor. I look forward to taking another class from her again.
she's awesome. good teacher. look forward to having her next semester! =]
I think this instructor does a great job in teaching this course. She clearly understands this subject and it shows through her teachings. I will most likely end up choosing another course with her as the instructor.
excellent instructor
She was a awesome professor. She was realistic and didnt make us to unrealistic things such as memorize 5 chapters in 3 weeks like some other teachers. You cant learn that way.
she was very inspirational to me. Throughout high school I never liked science of any kind. But after taking this class I have grown to love it.
shes all g (good)
Ms. Brashear gives many information on subjects of microbiology well. She hits all the points that is needed for us to learn about a certain subject. She is fair in all her dealings with all the different students. She will come down to your level to m
