13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I enjoyed the text "Why nations go to war" and the quizzes every week enabled me to try and keep up with the course work and schedule.
He forms the class to help students get a good grade and allows them to slip up to a certain extent while offering chances to get ahead
He is incredibly experienced in the subject. His expertise is something that I feel really lucky to be able to take advantage of. He encourages students to learn their own views and perspectives.
his deep expierence and knowledge of subject matter
Professor Chadwick has effective teaching methods that get the students involved and give them a hands on, social experience which allows students as close as they can get to a first hand experience. Great teacher. Very knowledgeable.
Richard Chadwick was incredibly well-informed and was able to easily convey complex ideas about international relations in way that makes it understandable to those with little to no background in the subject. He encouraged students to think critically about the material and was more focused on providing a quality education rather than having students compete for a certain grade point average.
He was very knowledgable.
Knew the course material very well.
Helped to foster a well-rounded understanding of the subject matter.
He was a smart guy
Professor Chadwick is very smart and professional.
The lectures and quizzes were most valuable and helpful.
His character. His enthusiasm. His authority on the subject.
He brought the experience of a long career to the course. His understanding of the material was a great help, he was able to explain complex ideas in simple ways and through his experiences.
He knows the material really well.
It is really hard to rate professor Chadwick, his experience and his knowledge goes beyond anything any student can ask for. So much, that his lectures and quizzes sometimes do not meet up. Although personally I don't see a problem, trying to make a quiz based off what he has to say seems almost impossible.
Funny, knowledgeable, and excited about the material.
He really wants you to succeed, the course material can be challenging but his teaching style sparks an interest in the subject.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He was a little brash in class sometimes, but it was not a major issue
I would have liked to gain a better grasp on global politics but I think that might be something that I need to practice more rather than just learning it for one semester.
n/a
Nothing comes to mind.
He was very vague. When I asked my classmates if they knew what was going on, they were as confused as I was.
Snappy attiutude. And lecture would tend to drag on without making much process
He's pretty old and is hard of hearing. He has a short fuse and a quick temper
He was just perfect professor.
N/A
N/A
sometimes questions were not answered clearly.
He is very hard to approach and is unorganized. When we would ask him for written explanations of what he wanted for papers and things like that, he would get really upset with us and tell us to listen in class. It was hard to ask him for help.
Quizzes, maybe this should be turned into a written based class. Quizzes are just to hard in this class. Especially because many of the theories and ideas are very abstract.
Flexible, approachable, and practical. Funny and gets excited about every aspect of the course. He enjoys teaching the course.
His personality can be a little abrasive at times.

21. Other comments:
Thank you Professor Chadwick
Excellent course. Would recommend it to my peers.
Especially liked the Simulation. However, the simulation needed more guidance and rules.
None
He is very professional and has a superior knowledge on politics.
Ty
the only complaint I have is the short class time. classes were too short (50min) to get really deep into the material. Some of the material warranted long classes to grasp. A twice a week meeting time would be better or a once a week meet up would be better still.
The simulation was a great experience and should definitely remain part of the course. I liked the way it was run as well.
Awesome teacher!
Question number twenty is pointless and shouldn't be in this survey.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He seems to know a lot about his subject and current events.
He likes to talk after class about the course content.
He gave a solid explanation for any question that I might of had about the subject at hand.
He knew the material and he wanted everyone's opinion about the topic discussed. Even if it is in writing or said in class.
He had a good understanding and many sources to refer to. He also allows us to make up our quizzes which shows that he intends for us to learn something rather than memorizing it for a grade.
Lectures and reading were really helpful
He has a lot of experience and uses great references to back up his lectures. he is also willing to share those references freely with the students.
I found that Professor Chadwick was very knowledgeable on the course content. He is very helpful to the students and is always available to talk to. He gives numerous ways of succeeding in class. Professor Chadwick really breaks down the course material in a way that students can grasp the concepts.
This professor was very knowledgeful and
His life experiences that could be related to the course subject matter. Professor Chadwick has offered real life experience to us as students to show us how adaptive leadership can be used and to better explain the materials in the course we were learning.
His immense knowledge and experience. I personally love Chadwick's style of lecture, especially this semester. The circle style class discussions really allow for intellectual dialogues and forces students to engage.
Allowing us to write down questions after the quiz which he addressed the following class.
The thing that I found most valuable and helpful about Richard Chadwick is the way he teaches the class.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
I wish he would have used power points. I am a visual learner, and taking 18 credits this semester. It is difficult for me to recall all of the readings constantly because I need to refer to a memory of an image. PowerPoint would have helped with my success in this class. As well as, better understand course content.
I feel like I am the only person in the class that can interpret his Chadwickian phraseology. I understand his points but conflicts arise in class discussions that, from my view, happen due to a lack of mutual understanding. Many times, Dr. Chadwick and a student are trying to say the same thing, but they don't understand each other.
He sometimes asked us to read before answering a question i may have had.
none
Talk a little too much at time. But it wasn't a big problem.
I am not sure how to answer this question. Please consider revising it.
I have taken a couple other classes with Professor Chadwick and notice that he likes to use books on theory (i.e. Viotti and Kaupi and Heifetz). Although these books are good for their subject matters, they are often times not related to the real world, they are just theory. I suggest that he takes those various model and theories and show how they apply to today's society.
The Book 13 bankers
Nothing
Students were not asked to apply the models. We would have a better understanding if there was more discussion on the models rather then lecture.

21. Other comments:
I feel very strongly about having PowerPoint. I feel the class would have benefitted from it. Overall, Professor Chadwick is a really nice professor, caring professor. He gives us opportunities to make up quizzes if we missed them, and allows us to correct mistakes.
This was one of those courses where I feel like I'm not learning anything about being a better leader; but I see myself being better at leading. it is easy to give up on the class and not pay attention, but it is worth it to go to class and participate.
he could be more engaging with students
class had good people in it
I wish we read the adaptive leadership book first and then moved on to the other books. It wold have been fun to analyse the other books with the adaptive leadership book freshly in my knowledge.
Great teacher, his methods just need minor tweaks and adjustments.
The book 13 banks made me feel like I was in a economic class not a political leadership class
No matter what any of your colleagues say, keep teaching! I will always stand up for this mans integrity and effectiveness as a teacher.
Circle discussion would have been useful earlier on in the course. Having quizzes on Wednesdays might motivate the students to do the readings before class discussion; by having quizzes on Fridays students are more likely to put off the reading until Wednesday and Thursday.

13. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
The man practically knows EVERYTHING!!!, whether obscure facts & happenings of the past or up to the hour events. Himself and an empty classroom alone equals a think-tank! Mostly I appreciate the fact that Dr. Chadwick made me learn so much and made me go the distance with the assignments. Dr. Chadwick is a great lecturer, brilliant, and has heart.
14. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
The university and department not having him teach more classes per semester. He is by far the best the department has to offer in instructors.

5. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The way he quizes, it based of actual knowledge
class discussions
Professor Chadwick was very passionate and allowed students to do written work to make up points missed on quizzes. This was great because it both helped the students to learn the material and improve their grade which decreased the amount of stress that the students felt.
Learning about future issues that are rising up was valuable.
Dr. Chadwick possesses a tremendous amount of knowledge about the material he covers in this course, and was able to answer any questions that students had regarding his lectures. Honestly Dr. Chadwick has one of the better class structures that I've experienced here at UH.
Professor Chadwick is a wealth of information, as are many students as he has pointed out, and being able to listen to his perspective, take and understanding of various theories, concepts, and events is eye opening and inspiring.
I really liked the book Why Nations go to War. It was very informative and a new perspective
3x3 Global Drills
He explained many of the important terms we needed clearly and gave us a summary before hand.
I liked Professor Chadwick's style of lecture. He always related what we were reading to the course and could easily explain the relevence of the texts we would read.
I really benefited from the option to make corrections to the quizzes
The readings and weekly quizes really challenged me
The lectures was most valuable and the group discussions. His lectures were understandable and great to listen to. The group discussions were based on his lecture and/or a question he gave out for the students to ponder on and discuss about. In addition, he allowed us the opportunity to recommend suggestions to what could better the class discussions and/or his lectures.
I enjoyed both required books for this course and thought that in-class discussions and lectures were very insightful.
6. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
3x3 drills
the 3x3 drill
Martin Schwab's 3x3 global drills was somewhat poorly planned and not explained thoroughly so students had to guess at what they were doing throughout that portion of the course
Doing the 3x3 drill during the second half of the semester didn't do anything to enhance my learning
I know the class ended up spending a lot of time on it, and no offense to Martin, however the 3x3 group activity felt lacking. I understand the focus and purpose of the simulation but besides a couple of the simulations the 3x3 activity was not engaging and became monotonous. This could have been because over half of the groups had the same topic. The 3x3 activity also seemed to drag on quite a bit and I felt it was cutting in to hearing what Prof. Chadwick had to offer us through lecture. The smaller group discussions we had early on, with Q and A right afterward felt more fruitful. Don't get me wrong, I do believe thinking long term, global problem and solution drills are good but as a class I didn't think we got very far in truly thinking and working together to come up with possible solutions. Sadly I do not hav a better idea of how to do this.
The 3X3 drills need to be organized better. I think it would work better if you did a session where the groups could talk to their team members before they get up and present to the class.
N/A
N/A
The simulation groups
Although interesting...I did not feel incredibly stimulated from the mock exercise. At times I felt extremely confused on what was going on...but overall the exercise was interesting and got me to think of politics in a completely different light...so my suggestion would be to have clearer directions for how the exercise should be conducted...maybe make a recording of a previous class and then show that recording to future classes to show how the exercise is conducted.
NONE
I thought the 3x3 Global Drill was very invaluable and served little to no purpose as it pertains to this course.

I liked his style of teaching
I would have enjoyed this course a lot more if it focused only on Professor Chadwick's lectures and course material. The 3x3 global drills took away from his material and made students less passionate about the class.
This is a great course and it really makes you think and wonder what we are doing, why are we doing it, and so on.
I think more of the 3x3 global drills should take place! However, maybe instead of focusing the drills on what the paper was on, present a question/hot topic to each group for a global impromptu debate... Pass out a paper to the class containing 3 possible topics of choice, allow each group to decide what their topic is out of the 3 (don't allow more than two groups to cover one topic), and have them research actual policies/laws regarding those topics, as well as problems/solutions. Something like that, that involves not just solutions to global problems, but specific ways in which the policies and laws regarding those issues can be created/adjusted/abolished/etc... Overall, awesome course!

Simulation
EVERYTHING! He is incredibly smart, it blew me away. Great professor, great instructor, good with letting you make up tests but making those quiz's hard keeps you on your toes and studying! Goes off on rants (which I love) and brings in knowledge from textbooks, his own experiences and current events. I haven't yet figured out his political affiliation, but I have a feeling I rather not no.
international relations and current political issues

16. Other comments:
Would have been even greater if the class involved "model UN" where students can debate issues of great importance as they step into the shoes of a particular country's ambassador. Also, lectures tend to go off on a tangent and need to focus specifically on the dynamics of these international relations, as well as the empirical data.
the class is much boring because of the lectures....it has to come up with some class activities base on the lectures or the readings of the weeks
Should have picked a better book for the International Relations Theory.

His style of teaching is very different and really entertaining.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
I wish there was a bit more interaction with the class, but I understand it is hard to allow 6 TI's to participate all the time in the course of the semester.
Professor Chadwick dislikes criticism which means that when he makes claims that are wrong (like: the french revolution took place in 1789 not 1815 like he said in class) I don't feel like i can correct him without him getting defensive and angry.

The text, groupwork
reading a chapter a week and discussing it and hearing lecture on it was very valuable and effective because it was a good amount of reading yet not extremely demanding so everyone was able to do it. it was just right in workload, with journals readings and quizzes, challenging but not exhausting
Profesor Chadwick is very knowledgeable of 20th Century American foreign policy. I like how he expounded on major events.
The environment the instructor offered was conducive to learning yet laid back in a good way. The text offered in the course was very easy to read yet extremely comprehensive. Chadwick is a career educator who provides a very welcoming environment and lectures in a colloquial way that is "grandfatherly" like but it seems to be suited for a subject like American Foreign policy. Flexibility in assignments and a very free and open discourse was appreciated. Chadwick knows his subject matter very well and is a great asset to this institution.
When we had the debate on a simulation held in class about Foreign Aid Policy around the world.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Lectures were a little hard to follow.
simulations
Quizzes and exams were rather simple but the weekly exams serve their purpose in helping students focus on the main points. Lectures can get off topic at times but usually provide some insight into foreign policy and politics.

Supplementing the textbook with some other reading material would be nice. The quizzes and exams could also be made to be a little more challenging. It would be nice to get some feedback on the weekly writing assignments or assign topics for the weekly writing assignment so that they may be used for a point for discussion in future classes.
I have taken three classes with this professor and it just doesn't make me feel weak to attend his lectures because he is an excellent instructor and very smart. Using all his knowlege in grasping the students to understand the concept of the materials and whatever it is presented in the course materials. With this i have strongly recommended Dr. Chadwick to be an excellent instructor.

7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
The interactions with student was very good because it kept the students awake and focused.
The small group sessions & the lectures.
The content when presented in charts and graphs and on board were well presented.
Simulation activity and Lectures
I really thought that the book discussions were most valuable. It helped me understand the material and relate it to current issues. I also liked the group project at the end, it really gave a different perspective to the class and let us simulate real political topics.
Books
Got me out of my comfort zone, gave me tools for future development.
I like the readings the most. There was three books that were required readings but they were very interesting to read.
The four required books. These books were wonderful application to not just class but life. I will keep these books for the rest of my life. Also i found a weekly write up to be effective. It keeps us (students) engaged to the course, week by week. It also calls for a moment of reflection, i feel too many times, the message just goes in one ear and out the other. With the requirement of a write up, your forced to sit down and contemplate the message, really soak up relevance and importance.
EVERY SINGLE CLASS IS VALUABLE.
the book discussions
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
None.
The lack of a solid & firm schedule. It seemed to change and it was hard to keep track of what was needed to be done for each week.
Class was very disorganized, content very hard to grasp without being a specialist in the field.
I didn't think that any part of the course was not valuable.
At times unorganized, unstructured.
Group activities. Most students were opinionated to the point that they overpowered those that were quite. It didnt feel like a true legislative session.
Your lectures that merely paraphrased the assigned readings. I felt that at the beginning of the semester you talked about things outside of the parameter of the books we were reading. However that could be because you set the foundation for the rest of the course, with topics of Stephen Covey, and Maslow, and ruler of China. Though, as the semester progressed, I felt most of the lectures talked about the readings, that most of us, read the night before. I enjoyed when you talked about other issues and make relevance to the readings and/or life in general, i.e. stress bucket.
NONE THAT I CAN THINK OFF.

7. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Professor Chadwick's 40 plus years of thinking about the theory, data and culture and corresponding science, praxis and philosophy of American foreign policy.
The readings were outstanding. Class discussions were interesting and enjoyable. Professor Chadwick is incredibly knowledgeable, genuinely cares about his students, and clearly enjoys teaching.
All aspects were valuable.
8. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Some lectures and presentations were clearer to understand than others. As with all classes in this department and perhaps in all academe, more deliberation among an international student body, especially in a seminar setting guided by the expert, the professor might benefit all involved exponentially. Of course, international students have a responsibility to contribute more substantively and imaginatively to the discussions that do take place rather than the usual manner of deferring to or passively resisting their U.S. counterparts.
