2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This course did a great job of providing economic and political perspectives on healthcare. It was directly related to career-specific competencies.
This course definitely opened my eyes on how much we spend on health care and what we maybe running shortages of in the health care industry. it is important to know what is currently being done to help and what we can do as well.
This course helped me understand my major a lot because it gave me an idea of how important the policies and laws are in health care and how they are still improving.
It gave me insight on how today's healthcare system works.
This course covered very pratical information and was very infromative. I think this course was one of my favorite because it did cover things I will need once graduating. The professor made sure to cover each necessary section that applies to Healthcare majors.

Nothing. It was the perfect amount of homework and discussions to keep us actively involved.
All her activities and resources she gave were more than enough to help with learning.
More powerpoint presentations would be very helpful. The book explains a brief description that is hard to understand.

I thought it was great that Dr. Young sent out an email every week outlining what would be covered and what was important to take from it.
I would just include your email to reach you, only because laulima isn't so reliable when it's having technical difficulties.
I enjoyed her online course and I thought she did a great job teaching this class.
More powerpoint presentations would be very helpful. The book explains a brief description that is hard to understand.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Very good, I like the weekly reviews on what we will be covering, and whats due.

This class successfully enhanced my professional development towards my concentration and major by the lectures and assignments given that has come to my understanding of the aspect of health care administration.
This course taught me a lot about health care. I learned many things about insurance and the way the health care system works.
I enjoyed this class and learned a lot about this major.
I never really knew much about the health care sector but Dr. Young did well at giving good basic information about it.
The teacher enchance the subject cause she knows ot very well

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...
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.
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.
I personally like doing written assignments because those help me understand things better.

Update the book, go over questions after corrected and site where we can find them
No suggestions to improve this class or teaching style/methods because this course was well developed.
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
Amazing teacher!
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
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.
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.
A little disappointing. After this first class, I am not sure that Health Care Administration is right for me.
Excellent
It was a good course and I learned a lot. Teacher had a great positive attitude and was very helpful and understanding.
Would highly recommend this course to others in the health care profession.
Great introduction to the course of health administration.
Awesome understanding of healthcare
