Professor can improve this course through better organization of topics as well as readings. Simple things such as organizing the readings according to the syllabus would've been helpful. Also,all of the class period is spent on lecture material by the professor. It would have been nice to see a more creative way to present the material through movies or documentaries, guest speakers, small field trips, or even more hands-on activities. Lastly, the professor should reevaluate its rigid attendance policy. While attendance is important, it isn't the sole means by which to measure how much a student has learned in the course. Having a strict attendance policy is both inflexible and unreasonable and cannot be applied as a one size fits all policy as different students have different needs.

14. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I really enjoyed the trip to American Samoa. It was definitely a highlight of my graduate-level education. There are just some things that must be learned in the field. It was a very meaningful experience.
Hands-on experience
15. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
It seems the expectation is that a practicum puts together a report following a very predictable outline. Why not write a plan? Develop a media campaign? Create a film? A website? There are so many more creative ways to learn and document planning processes. I feel its time to broaden the scope of planning practicum outputs.

26. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Prior to our trip, a lot of time was spent on seemingly small details. It seemed like some things could have been worked out by email but were saved for class discussion. We spent a lot of time reviewing minutes and emails that sometimes were not really related to our project. I feel our class time could have been used more efficiently. Lines of communication were not always clear, and we sometimes sensed tension and lack of agreement between the professors. There also seemed to be a lack of clarity as to the purpose and expected outcome of the project.
