13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Drawing the students attention to a particular subject, helping students understand concepts better with examples and relativity to events today. Explaining terms and concepts to be easily digested.
Strong knowledge base, desire for students to learn, accessibility
His major strengths would be being available to the students. Its not very difficult to get a hold of him.
Chief was very clear and knew his stuff on the subject on anthropology. He was also clear when explaining key concepts.
very knowledgeable on topics discussed in campfire sessions. having campfire sessions really helped with learning the topics & preparing for assignments/exams.
Your sense of humor in campfire is what kept me comming back. You have a lot of story to tell to your students becuase you've been in other countries, places. Yes, I did enjoy campfires.
His personal experience in the field and readiness to talk to students.
Fun and informative
knowledgeable
everything, he is a great professor, his passion for other cultures is contagious
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
provide some kind of make-up for missing online class time.
He should be more prompt on inputting the assignment grades and being available to students through email instead of going to his office because students like myself aren't able to meet at school.
possibly more samples for the final paper to look at & get ideas about.
Please try to update your assignments, papers due. The one I printed when we started class in Jan. 2011 was last years fall 2010 semester and I did get a little thrown off.
none
more clarification on class projects
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
always available / accessible, gave good examples for projects, posted reminders.
He showed concern through the campfires. If he wanted a student to contribute more he would ask them. This shows that he really wants to know your thoughts.
Attending his campfires on time showed his concern and how important it is to teach us.
he was available by email & office hours to help students with any questions they might have
Keep the memos, notes, email consistently comming. I think that will help a great deal for students.
Sympathy when troubled in the chat room
he is always available for the students
