16. Other comments:
I like the review sessions before class.
Critical thinking questions at the end are good.
Professor knows the subject material very well. I enjoyed the guest lectures. Class discussion activities got the class to participate.
Class helped me with my critical thinking skills
I really enjoyed taking his class and the discussions we had during class. His course and teaching has gave me so much knowledge of travel and tourism. He is fair to all his students and is always available to students if help is needed
I don't prefer that we had to fill in the blanks as he gave the answers on his powerpoint lecture. But he does try to help you out.
It is plenty stuff to remember but professor teach me step by step so easy to understand,
Professor Chi is great. He know the subject and answers questions with a lot of information. Sometimes it is a little hard to understand because it includes a lot of economic practices and/or formulas
I enjoyed this class very much. As mentioned in class, there are a lot of power points per class period. The information was helpful with exams and understanding the concepts, but maybe less fill-in-the-blanks will help the slides seem shorter.
I like how he teach the class but I just do not like it when he said that whenever we missed class, we will get points deducted no matter what.
Exams and quizzes are a bit tricky and hard, but objective. I really enjoyed this course. It was informative and interesting that prof chi had alot of industry experience. The group project is alot of work, but the way prof chi organized and split the sections made it easier and made splitting the work easier. No problems at all, except doing my part. He should propose group project outline to other professors so big group projects are not so challenging. Hitting early drafts, outlines, and powerpoint due dates is such a great idea. It is stressful but worth it in the end so it is not all crammed last minute. Overall, professor Chi is really organized and i enjoyed the course.
Interesting class! good job!!
I like professor Chi !
Good
I think having a study guide would make it easier for students to remember main points and topics covered in exam. Studying the whole PowerPoint was very difficult, especially with the amount of information per chapter.
Prof. Chi is an incredible skillful instructor! Prof. Chi showed care and concern for ALL of the class members! Prof. Chi skillful knowledge of the course subject was a major help to me in my academic journey. I am for really grateful to Prof. Chi for ALL of his time and efforts to extend the course content of Transportation information in a way that it ALL fits in with the Travel industry and its functioning parts or perspectives. Mahalo nui Prof. Chi!
Overall, Professor Chi did a great job in terms of organizating the course and setting deadlines for students to complete their group project. I very much liked the fact that the project is broken up into sections and there are deadlines for each section of the project throughout the semester. I truly feel that this really helps prepare students in completing the project in a timely matter.
I think that his attendance policy is too strict for the material he presents. It is the same material in the book. I feel like he should shorten the material and focus on guest speakers and his discussions. He might also want to have review sessions of some of the multiple choice questions. I enjoy the material and have learned a lot.
