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?
I learned the 4 P's, SWOT Analysis. ETC.
This course was able to enhance my personal development in the field of business because I have become familiar with terms that business use and I think it is useful to know how businesses speak in terms of marketing.
It helped me understand what marketing was all about. How a business could better market a business and gave me an overall description on what needs to be done or considered when starting up a business. This is a great class to start off with as an introduction to business.
This course allowed me to become passionate about a topic I knew surrounds me, Marketing. I was able to learn appropriate terms within this course study and apply it to the world around me. Being educated by Mrs. Rush was fun and helpful, she makes me want to change my major to Marketing. She has impacted my mind and train of thought.
Helps me talking to my employers in selling products
My business started growing tremendously to the point that my grades were declining do to more business growth.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
I think if there were more students it would be better. I think she made it very easy to learn and helped by printing out our papers and getting the class involved in the conversations.
I enjoyed watching clips from other resources on marketing. I think more clips could help give students better visuals on how the concepts work.
The notes help a lot. Mrs. Rush is really good at going over everything that is in the chapter and giving real life examples or senarios that help me get concepts.
Some activities or resources that could be added to this course are possibly to have a group and individual project which allows the students to visually or physically apply marketing concepts and relate it to the real world. Some topics were difficult to comprehend so possibly creating an extra credit assignment to help myself understand the concept more and to present what things I could be missing within the topic of the extra credit.
The course is really fabulous

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Not so late in the day... Maybe 10AM
-More video clips -there could be highlighted sentences in the lecture handouts so that students can see more important concepts that they should focus on
I would suggest that a paper should
Add an individual or group project, definitely continue to do case studies as a group and go over homework questions into detail after the assignment was graded. Sometimes I would second guess my answers provided in my homework assignments unsure if I was on the right track or not.
Great
Mrs. Rush does an excellent job delivering her lectures.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I think she is very fair and teaches very well.
Professor Rush kept us engaged and interested when learning the concepts of marketing. I liked the way she thought the class and kept the classroom in a professional manner.
she's a really good teacher. She was very punctual from the beginning and end with responding back to her students. She makes sure that everyone's questions are answered. Very open to help and research asked questions. She's very good at making concepts understandable
Mrs. Rush is a wonderful teacher. I've been to many different universities and community colleges and the reasons why I left was mainly the teachers I came across. Mrs. Rush shows her concern in her students grades and efforts and she shows how much she cares about her students success. She is more generous than most teachers but I am grateful for her guidance.
great
I would love to take further classes that Leslie offers. She speaks well and clearly

I think that marketing is an interesting field that requires a lot of critical thinking and creativity. The course was great in teaching the marketing terms and phrases to show that marketing is actually very useful in learning about businesses.
Very good for business. Allows students ideas to be developed into something more realistic. I really like the book too. A lot of information with real business and analysis that help get concepts out.
This course was extremely fun for an educational course and I definitely feel my eyes have become aware to the world and how much marketing affects the world around us.
Great
again this course has dramatically increased my business as i applied the techniques to my business
21. Other comments:
I will try to take this teacher to learn more from her. I will recommend her to other students.
I enjoyed taking this class from Professor Rush. I liked learning the marketing concepts and terms, and I'm more familiar with words that businesses use when marketing their goods and services.
no other comments
Thank you so much Mrs. Rush. You are absolutely inspirational and I feel like you have made my first semester here at UH West O'ahu worthwhile. I look forward to being apart of another course you teach.

This class helped me get a better understanding of marketing and the different strategies. It is a really good class that helped me get a better understanding about the major I am getting into.
Marketing is a very important aspect in any industry, and to understand and know the foundations and terms that comprise the field is a necessity. Perhaps in the field, only a few concepts will be ultimately utilized, however, to have a general knowledge of Advertising and marketing, is crucial in making important business decisions.

This class definitly taught me the basics of ma rketing and opened my mine kn how to market a business successfully.

I am a marketing major, so it helped me a lot. She provided many wonderful examples!
I'm reconsidering my major
how know how to judge people haha...and marketing is more than selling a product
This was a great look at the marketing field--valuable to any business major and particularly to entrepreneurs like me. I was pleased to have some real tools to take away. I liked the book (especially the Write your Own Marketing Plan sections) though it was too wordy at times.
This course introduced me to the subject of marketing and taught many aspects in business where marketing is applicable.
It gave me a better understanding of how to develop target markets for different products/services.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
Use more photos and videos that relate to the topic so we students get a better understanding.
The class is very straight-forward and works for many. Being that it is in the evening and thus catered to working professionals, the class curriculum works well. I would love to see more classes of this similar style (class duration and frequency of once a week), but at an earlier time slot, to accomodate individuals like me whom work evenings (although I am aware that I am the minority.)
I would recommend shorter course work to prepare for the exams better. i felt there was to much information to cover for the exams.
None, there were a lot of activities and resources through out the course.
We could discuss more about current marketing campaigns since our textbook is several years old.
None she had videos and case studys to help with the learning
Maybe a person from the marketing profession could come into class to talk to us might help.
A better study guide.
I feel that group projects would enhance an already great class experience.
The overall course material was very easy to grasp but the way of lesson taught at the same time the homework was due threw me off. I felt my assignments I did could have been improved within quality if she assigned assignments after the lesson.
more examples that help understand the concepts...
Class interaction is good and that is something that I greatly enjoy. The visuals presented through videos are also helpful in my learning. However, much of the information learned in class is straight from the book and if things can be switched up a bit that would be great.
The overall activities and resources were great.
a better text that explain the course material more in depth
-- snipped --
video
I can't think of any unless she could persuade a marketing manager to come in and talk during one session. That would be interesting.
No additional activity or resource required.
I feel that there were sufficient resources.
Aside from lectures, I'd like to have more projects that utilizes what the class had learn as a way to physically use what we have learned into a marketing presentation. For example, a presentation could be a proposal of a made up product that the students created and would try to market that item to the rest of the class or a distinguish target market.

Corrections of homework in class;correcting each other's work.
None. The activities that were provide really helped me to understand the material.

Based on what was mentioned earlier about who the class really caters to, I feel that the structure is very appropriate. The general sense of the class is to lecture, ensure that everyone is on the right page, answer questions, and "we're out", which I personally enjoy.
i wouldn't change anything
Professor Rush is a really good professor. I look forward to taking her classes in the upcoming semester. The only thing I would change is that we were in class forever. I didn't actually think we would be ending class at 9:45 each night. No class should ever end at 9:45 pm. That's way too late.
I would suggest adding one or two creative-based assignments or projects instead of just written assignments and a term paper.

None. All the bases are pretty much covered.

The only suggestion I can think of is to spread out the exams. For example 4 exams within the semester. This may improve the quality of study for exams, and overall improvement of grades for students. This simply means less material to study for exams, vs the material studied for 3 exams.
maybe impliment more group work but other than that it was good.

Personally I would have liked to go through people answers on some of the homework questions so I would know how other people think. For example: Re branding Ferrari. It would have been fascinating to see what other people did so I could learn about other rebranding strategies!

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
She is a great teacher. She really went into depth about the subject and made it easier for students to understand the topic.
Professor Rush is a woman on a mission. She is very organized by structure of her class curriculum and is open to many suggestions, such as having homework extended to Sundays rather than before class. This way, we can ensure that homework assignments are done to the best of our abilities.
her teaching style is great. easy to follow. when she speaks, you have a sense of bonding. you can tell she is fully involved in the class.
Great professor! Very nice and has a good sense of humor.
Leslie Rush is a good teacher. She encourages critical analysis and provides constructive feedback. My responses to assignments have well improved throughout the semester because of this.
She is an awesome teacher and inwould recommend her to fellow students
Great teacher who communicates well with students. Recommended.
Good teacher, and really into what she teaches.
She's very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Class isn't difficult as long as you attend class, are included in class discussions, and stay on top of your homework.
Leslie Rush is a great teacher and very enthusiastic. She encourages students to learn the material and elaborates clearly on the lesson and chapter we go over.
She is very lively and kept most of the attention of the class. She was always willing to help and open to everyone's commentaries
Leslie Rush is a great instructor, she knows her material and she wants her students to succeed. Questions and class interaction is very much encouraged. Her visuals are also helpful to one's learning. I would just like to see more of her twist on the subject matter instead of what is straight from the book.
Leslie Rush has a great personality. This makes learning from her fun, and inspiring. I would like to take her classes for upper divisions. Furthermore, if I ever start a business I would like her to be a center of influence.
She makes a real effor to keep everybodys attention for the 3 hour class and I applaud her for that. She always answers any questions that the class raises and gives clear comments and feedback to the homework.
great professor, knows course really well from experience, fair to all students.
She's really cool. She looks up great pictures and videos of the things we are going over in class so that it's easier for us to remember. It also makes class more interesting.
Very positive!! I've never had a teacher respond with feedback/graded assignments so fast. It helps to know how I'm doing and what I can improve on in a timly manner so I have a chance to improve. She's wonderful.

She loves her job.
Ms. Rush is a well-informed instructor who cares about her students. She makes the class fun and interesting, while presenting a lot of information and maintaining high expectations. She will make a valuable addition to the business department at West Oahu, in my opinion, because of her real-world experience.
Leslie rush is an excellent teacher and would take another class from her.
good teaching methods. They way she goes over each chapter allows for students to easily understand the information. The visual aids help connect the students to the specific topic. She answers all questions and makes sure that the students grasp concepts of marketing. I would recommend her to other students.
She is a good teacher and is very knowledgeable about her subject. I think, however, that she relies a lot on the book and that she is capable of teaching very much outside of it.
Despite teaching the class for the first time, I feel that she did a great job at conveying the ideas about the material and by using her own personal experiences.
Fantastic teacher. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
She needs more work.
Excellent
Mrs. Rush made my first semester at UHWO a very pleasant experience. She was very organized, always available for help, and was clear with her directions.

GREAT
The course is very concise and clear. Assignments are consistently structured the same, which allows students to get into the academic "groove" when taking this class. I was effectively able to explicitly schedule time during my day to get assignments and work done for this class. As aforementioned, I think a class structure as this would be ideal for professionally working individuals.
great class. somewhat overwhelming, but still a great class to prepare students for the real world
I like the class. It's very interesting. I would actually show up to class more often if it didn't end so late.
I enjoyed this course, it is the most interesting out of call my courses this semester. It brings out the creativity in people who are otherwise left-brained like myself.
It is a complicated course but you getvthe grove of it when you have the lectures and read the material
Interesting.
Good class to take for all Business majors regardless if it's an core requirement.
Definitely a FUN class and the teacher makes it fun an enjoyable.
My involvement within the class was minimal but that does not take away from the fact I learned a lot from the class, and my exams and paper clearly illustrate that. The lessons we've been taught are easily ingrained within students, and I feel Rush is very close to her students. Her personality creates a very welcoming experience of learning!
Time was not good. If it was a little earlier it would have made a difference. Teacher was interesting enough that it was not boring. There should have been more chances of participation from class.
This was a good course and I would say that I learned a lot from it.
I love this course. It breaks marketing down to a science. I believe many business owners, or sales individuals underestimate the importance of marketing.
good.
the course is great just the time schedule ends late
This course is really helpful if a person wants to learn about Marketing. Professor Rush goes over the material thoroughly while also providing great examples.
Positive!!

it is necessary for any business major
A great course. The most fun one I took this semester. Valuable, without being dry.
This course is a must take if interested in business or marketing and should be taken by Leslie rush.
Highly recommend this course for other students.
Good. I feel that I learned a lot about marketing, and the class itself was reasonably enjoyable and informative. Technical aspects could be improved, but generally the class was good.
The course wasn't easy but it wasn't necessarily hard either. However, I did enjoy being in class and learning about marketing despite that the class is no longer a requirement for my major. I think it was a fun course and allows the students to think more strategically in terms of how to get through an specified audience and understand how the marketing world operates.
Great! Very conceptual, which makes it difficult at times, but never impossible if you put your mind to it.

If it wasn't for having it in the evenings (which is personally quite dreadful, having to catch the bus home,) the class is brilliantly structured and taught. Thank you Professor Rush, perhaps I shall see you in another class. BUSA 305 perhaps?

The online lectures helped a lot. The book was good as well.
Perhaps a marketing campaign can be in place of the term paper. This way students can put together a campaign using skills that they have learned in class and would be more beneficial for their future career rather than a paper. If not in place of, maybe it could be in addition to. I think that it would be fun to see everyone's marketing strategies and campaigns.
I really liked the book she chose for this course. It was interesting and made the concepts easy to understand.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I liked this course a lot, the text was good, and the course load was managable.
I think more quizzes would help us learn the material better.
I did not like the blackboard collaborate, through the course I was unable to log on. I have never had to use this for my other classes and all my previous instructors used chat rooms, message boards and the uh laulima to conduct class. I did not have to do anything special in order to log on. I tried various methods on both my PC and Apple and neither was able to open the class. This resulted in myself not being able to participate in the collaborate and ultimately not getting credit for class participation.
Professor rush should consider using modules on laulima. It's very hard to sort through my email to find her weekly lesson plans.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great instructor
I enjoyed the class
Good teacher and good course direction.
My overall evaluation of Leslie Rush is that she is knowledgeable in her subject matter. She is easy to get ahold of via email and responds quickly. I liked her teaching method and materials all except the blackboard collaborate. That does not take away that I enjoyed her class.
I thought the class was good. I appreciated the weekly lectures and thought the assignments helped me to dig into the material.
Great teacher. Would take another course taught by her.
18. Class assignments provided an effective aid for learning the subject matter.
