17. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I would suggest she use a planner and have a "to do" list so she doesn't forget what she's doing. Also she should stick to the syllabus, and make an effort to remember dates better.
Show up for class on time, come prepared, don't waste class time running back to the office or making copies, be more clear as to what is expected on a exam or paper.
With the tea bowl making could the future students have more time to work on their tea bowls. I felt one day to work on the tea bowl wasn't enough.
none
Besides teaching the Asian History, include writing lessons for students That should help the students improve their writing and the teacher will get better papers

Yes, great teacher, good knowledge of the area of Asian art.
No I would not recommend this instructor to students because a lot of class time is wasted on the instructor being unprepared and instructions on assignments never seem to be explained clearly and the lectures are to brief.
Yes I would recommend this instructor to students because she helps you learn about Asian art. You also get to make your own tea bowls. Thank you.

She is not always sure what she is going to do next but she keeps it interesting while learning. For example when we learned about the Japanese tea ceremony, she arranged for us to make our own tea bowls and she invited a professional tea server to demonstrate the traditions..refreshing twist on learning
