14. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Professor ensured academic freedom for every single one of us. Very few professors are able to do so due to numerous petty reasons.
Class presentations and discussion
Practical examples/case studies
The professor split the semester in half to dedicate students to teach the class about a specific topic. I thought this was the most challenging and most beneficial part of the course since we had to become familiarized and confident with knowledge on the subject.
the position papers, the presentations,the final paper.
Just Douglass comments, words and experience were valuable. He has much insight into every topic in class
This course has taught about urban and regional planning in Asia. It has given us all the aspects of planing practices in Asian country compare with US.
It considers a wide range of topic related to urban issues currenntly that my country has challenged with these days
When he encourages students to think hard and state our own position..
I can understand more clearly about Urban and regional planning in Asia
position paper presentation
This course let me think each issue deeply.
the instructor is very passionate about his subject area and gives time to his students. he is also very knowledgeable and feels that students can go out and make the world a better place.
the readings are great, the content is very interesting and relevant.
15. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
I cannot think of any.
I don't know of any.
Lecture; we need more discussion
While Douglass is wise and contributes much in information, he's not often teaching. Often his assistants teach. At other times its an entire day full of student presentations, who can sometimes be difficult to understand, and especially, repeat the same things.
Many issues were covered in a short amount of time
None
peer review
None.
the instructor is a little bit intimidating and maybe too entrenched in one particular viewpoint. class periods were short and not enough time for seminar discussions.

26. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
None. I just hope that Dr. Douglass will remain the same, great educator even after leaving the U.S.
He is already a very good instructor.
Just give more space for discussion
I think given Douglass background, I would've preferred more time listening to him and less time listening to the other students. Furthermore, he has many great powerpoint slides with great information but does not want to distribute them. This makes it very hard to keep up with the information he distributes orally and very hard for those who are unable to come to class.
already listed above. also sharing class materials would be an additional benefit.
the way Mike presents information can be overwhelming; his extremely broad range of knowledge provides very interesting, relevant discourse, but once I left the classroom, sometimes it was hard to remember exactly what had happened. Like a hypnotist. Also, he can be kind of snappy sometimes.

32. Other comments:
I wish I were not one of the final students Dr. Douglass taught at Manoa. His departure is a huge loss for the DURP... as he is someone whom I can respect not only as a scholar but also as a person. However, he deserves the most optimal environment for his continuous pursuit of scholarly activities. All the best wishes for Dr. Douglas. Also, I have to take a note on how great our TA, Hao was throughout the semester. Needless to say, he is highly intelligent--and always cared about each of us. His sincerity and sensitivity was very much appreciated. It was great to see as the semester went, the more he became confident in taking a leading role in class. He is destined to become a great professor in the near future.
It was a very thought provoking and challenging course.
The instructor of this course next time should point out good concepts/principles that should be applied to address issues instead of indicating problems and defects of the existing concepts/principles only
an excelent course
best of luck in your new position!
I would highly recommend this course to anyone seeking a challenge, particularly those from a technical or built background. This course has really changed the way I think about communities and their spaces.

14. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Of course, making a film was most valuable, as well as, seeing how the film fit in the larger context of the city and beyond.
the process of filmmaking for community development. Discussions on public space and neoliberalism policies effects on everyday life and social constructs.
The importance of storytelling and community gathering
Excellent opportunity for hands-on learning about filmmaking, both within social science research and independent of it.
15. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
File Cut Pro teaching sessions were hard to follow. Either have Henry make a visual guide, paper or video, or have him do it hands-on with students on computers.
Developing the curriculum module.

We needed more time to work during class as groups. Having at least half of one period per week or more to work on our projects would have been extremely helpful. The friday classes were often unfocused and tended to wander and could have been easily compressed by 30 minutes or more. Also, the final screening time was slated as 5-8pm, and posters also indicated this.. Henry sent out an email extending the time by about 45 minutes which is not a respectful for the attendees and students time. It is also much too long for a screening (as confirmed by the numbers who left before it ended).. If this sort of class is done in again in the future, I recommend 1.5 -2 hours be the maximum duration. Other than that, it was definitely a rewarding class, and I learned skills that will benefit me long-term.
Although the curriculum module is a great idea it is too much to expect out of one semester. The film and community screening felt more then enough to fulfill practicum requirements.
The course was very good and adaptive. I felt the discussions were generally very valuable.
Better tie-ins between the sessions discussing urban planning and film.
Repurposing is important but got crowded out by the filmmaking part. It's very important but maybe too much to put into the filmmaking part of the course.

This course was a very good overview of the subject matter provided by a professor who is obviously very knowledgeable about his field. He was very adept at bringing the students, who come from a wide range of backgrounds, into the discussion in a way that was useful and interesting.
the regional development theories
This course was one of the more informative I have taken in the Department so far. Examples were all applicable and up to date. Course seemed to provide a very good overview of the issues; it would be impossible to touch on everything I would have liked.
The critical way to think and evaluate the social problems. How to organize and develop paper on specific topic.
knowledge regarding planning practices in southeast asia
The lectures.
15. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
Honestly, I can't really think of anything that I would describe as "least valuable."
N/A. Certain aspects were not particularly valuable to me given my interests, but did seem worthwhile outside of this. Nothing was of especially low value.
Topic is too broad, so I feel difficult to understand and cover all
I wish we had more time for discussion during the Tuesday sessions.

I cannot think of anything that would improve the class.
Lectures and discussions were all very insightful. Very good at stimulating interesting discussions. Allows everyone to speak their mind but is not particularly accommodating of others' opinions. To a certain extent, seemed to view opposing opinions as less valuable than own. Allows disagreement, but seems to largely disregard opposing thoughts by recognizing them and simply moving on. Could possibly spend more time on more "concrete" ideas and methods rather than some of the more abstract issues or theories like "livable city."
Having more student group discussion would be helpful. It would help the students get to know each other better and also allow shyer students a place to speak.
The course give us the ideas about how planning in Asia is and what problems are. It is better if this course discuss more about how to deal with the problems more detail.
planning in south-asia could be added with this course content
The professor can be more open in integrating other students' contributions in class, even if they don't necessarily see eye to eye.

I thoroughly enjoyed this class. The professor certainly had his own opinions, but he invited students' differing opinions in a way that didn't make them feel uncomfortable or alienated. In this way discussion was relevant and useful. Overall, I learned a great deal about the course topic and I would recommend this course to others interested in urban development in East Asia.
One of the best courses I have taken in the Dept. in terms of content and style. Overall, I am VERY satisfied with the course.

In terms of class size, I think 4-6 is probably the best for this style class.
More reading in the first few weeks (preferably classics in sociology, and political economy)
hands on practice of public space resilience, TAZ, or in the streets activism would be a great exercise.
May be we can have a filed trip. Just visiting some sites around Honolulu and talk about the space and get some real idea how things work on the ground.
