23. Other comments:
Instructor invited three of the guest speakers to share their fruitful experience with us, I appreciated.
i would say that i've had both fun and education stuffed well throughtout each class session. marty made the material understandable and i liked that there were guest speakers that seemed to magically align with all of the subject matter. he is fair and listens to everybody's opinions and all students in the class seemed really comfortable in the sharing and learing process! :)
Marty was very engaging, especially for a night class. He kept things funny and interesting, but stayed on topic for the most part and actually covered course material! His paper assignments led me to engaging topics that I might not have otherwise explored, and he had alternative formats like debates which I found interesting.
Professor Oliphant was almost always upbeat and made the class fun, breaking up the learning with well-placed jokes. I have enjoyed his teaching style and would recommend you to keep using this instructor. I would would also put in a recommendation for anyone interested in taking his class.
