5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
i think everything we did in class was good.
We had a four hour class that basically went over everything that was in the book. I felt it was a complete waste to be in-class. Her lectures sort of extended on some of the material we were learning, but because the book was outdated (2007!), I feel like I did not get everything that I could have out of this class. The questions that were assigned in the book as well were unclear as to what it was really asking, or the answers were sometimes not even found in the book! I thought it was ridiculous! Change the book, and just have the class online. There was no need for us to be sitting four hours when we could easily read the book. When I also went to her for help as to what the question was really asking about, she did not provide me with any direction. As far as the homework assignments, she did not go over them after she finished correcting them via LAULIMA (ONLINE). It would have really helped if she went over the corrections and where we could find them in the book after she finished correcting the assignments...
I personally like doing written assignments because those help me understand things better.
The course does not need added resources to improve the learning. Dr. Young had many resources from health care magazines that were available for students to look at. These magazines had many interesting things about health care in them. The textbook was very outdated (2007). It was very wordy, and hard to understand. The questions we had to answer at the end of each chapter were all multiple choice and true/false. But because the book is so wordy and the questions are worded weirdly, the questions were hard to answer. And I was unable to get the grades I wanted on those assignments.
The activities given during class really improved my learning of this course by interacting with other classmates to fully develop what needs to be learned of the objective.
Assignment, group work, discussions, midterm and final

The PowerPoints that Dr. Young prepared for each class were very helpful. Because the book was so outdated, Dr. Young provided up to date information.

18. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
a good professor. Shes easy to talk to and very into this field. I had a great time listening to her stories related to the chapter
I enjoyed her class and wish she taught more classes in the healthcare field. It was easy to understand and follow. The homework assignments and chapter reading were informative and well reviewed the next class period. The group work gave us a more open view of the topice we covered.
She knows what she's talking about. She is knowledgeable about her coursework and makes the field sound interesting.
Dr. Young is a very good teacher. She is available to talk to outside of class and is willing to help. I did not like that most of the assignments came of out the outdated textbook. And that the assignments were hard to get a good grade on because the questions and the textbook are so wordy.
She is a great caring teacher
Amazing teacher!
Very organize and very helpful

21. My overall evaluation of this course is...
really good. Although the class periods were long, It was a good class and I enjoyed the professors stories.
Would highly recommend this course to others in the health care profession.
A little disappointing. After this first class, I am not sure that Health Care Administration is right for me.
Great introduction to the course of health administration.
It was a good course and I learned a lot. Teacher had a great positive attitude and was very helpful and understanding.
Excellent
Awesome understanding of healthcare
