16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Her methods are good as is.
Very confusing when speaking and asking questions. Many times, we don't understand the point she is trying to make or the question she is asking us.
Give feedback on lesson plans before we teach. Give more suggestions for improving our teaching.
I think she should interact with the whole class more often than she does.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great. Mrs. Oba's background of working in challenging teaching environments adds weight to the feedback she gave to me.
Since there were two professors, the class was split into two so I never had much opportunity to work with Professor Oba. However, I can see that she has many years of experience and can be relied on. She gives many advices and provides a lot of resources (books) and I thought it was very helpful.
Nice and easy to speak with. I think she needs more training on teaching at a higher level. Hard to say since Dr. Mathis controlled the class most of the time.
Awesome! She is a valuable source of information and is very helpful!
Very nice, very knowledgeable. Gives a different perspective on things.
Mrs. Oba has been a great asset in the classroom; as they say, "two heads are better than one." She came from DOE and so her inputs are usually pertaining to DOE point of view.
Very Good! A+ Ms Oba is an asset to UHWO!
