Thanks for the introductory Law course.
Actually, I was taking another law course at the same time, though it is first time to take law classes in the U.S. And another class was really hard for me because of my poor English skills. However, in her clsss I could understand about law and learn a lot of thigs even topics that I could not understand in another class. I really appreciate her to teach me. Actually, my grade was not good, but I really enjoy this class and considered about legal issues and myself. If I have a chance, I want to take her class again. Thank you so much.

19. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The way she presented the her online courses.
materials learned on laws
the websites she introduced to us
Covering a lot of valuable legal information that helped me get my foot in the door to work at a legal firm.
The foundation laid in processing subsequent material.
The interactive learning tools.
If I will get legal problems in the future, I might employ a lawyer. At the time I remember this class. And I will recognize the importance of basic knowledge about law.
Her online videos and PowerPoint activities with Rosie as the presenter (and Susan) as the presenters.
It's discussion board and intriguing questions about the law's ethics.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Organized, thoughtful, fair
Professor J always takes care of her students in every aspect.
She knew the course material. She organized the online class on laulima so that we could find everything. She's really good at using all resources at her finger tips so that we can benefit from taking this course.
Professor Jaworowski is very good at her job and I can tell that she really enjoys what she does. I've had her for four classes so far and she's always been so helpful and she takes the time to thoroughly explain topics.
As a paralegal program director, she is very efficient and organized with her lectures and powerpoint presentations.
She is a knowledgeable professional professor in this major. Her lecture is very organized and clear.
Prof J is an excellent teacher.
Professor J knew the subject fairly well, she made it interesting to learn about IP, she enhanced a new open window for me to maybe consider going into IP.
She's very knowledgeable in her area of teaching
Knowledge of subject matter.
Overall I was really impressed with her class and I really learned a lot of information that I didn't know before.
She is an expert in what she does.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
The Cali lessons are too hard. Maybe find an alternative to them.
Not at all
Since this is my second time taking this course, I'd say that there are no changes that need to be made to the course material on Laulima, but that the final could use some changes. The reason why I say that the final needs changes is because there isn't much in the way of directions for each question and you don't really know what she wants for an answer.
The most difficult part was having a quiz, assignment, CALI lesson, discussion board in one week. Perhaps, during an assignment week maybe eliminate the quiz and make the assignment worth more points.
The only changes I suggest Professor J to do is to make sure some of the links on the course site work before assigning it.
n/a
No changes are needed at this time.
The power point presentations was a bit confusing. It was confusing because when Prof J talked about one slide, and moved on to the next two slides, she would go back and talk about the first slide and that made it confusing.It was a bit confusing to follow. I think it was way too much information given. Information given should be to the point and not all the extra stuff that 's added.
No changes for online courses.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was easy to communicate with.
She is a great communicator and helper whenever students need some help.
She'd offer her help through the private messages and discussion boards in our course tab on Laulima.
She responds to emails promptly if we have any questions.
Professor J would always email her thoughts about the past discussions which makes it more interesting to see what her input of our daily discussions were about, she would also email us about deadlines which included extra credit and assignments.
She promptly returned my emails when I needed
Weekly e-mails that she sent pertaining to previous week's work (discussion board, homework, quizzes, etc.).
She would give feedback on the discussion boards if you weren't understanding the subject she would help you by email or phone.
She would email right away if there were any concerns.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes, fair, organized, approachable.
Yes, definitely I will because there are myriads of lessons to learn from her lecture.
Yes because she is a good instructor and you will benefit a lot from taking this course with her.
Yes, however the key to doing well in this class is to keep up with all the assignments, quizzes, discussion boards because it will be easy to lose out on points.
Yes, I strongly recommend Prof.J. to student. I have learned a lot of things in her class. Her class is little bit hard but it worthful.
Yes, because she knows her stuff
I would recommend Professor J to students because she gives a whole new perspective on the law and makes the class enjoyable.
Yes she works with u I u don't understand something
Yes, she is knowledgeable in the subject matter as well as using outside resources online.
Of course I would recommend Susan Jaworowski to other students because if you want to take an interesting class where you'll learn a lot of things you didn't know before or even how to find well you can through taking Susan Jaworowski class Law 141 Intellectual Property.
Yes I did because she teaches the courses well.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Good teacher.
She is the best professor!
She is very knowledgeable in the courses that she teaches.
She is a great professor!
n/a
She's a great instructor.
She is very nice and excellent in these online courses. She had me learn how to think about issues that I never really cared for. She allowed for participation in that we could voice our opinion in a respectful way.
18. Other comments:
Thank you for being a good, caring teacher.
By far the most challenging course I have taken, more difficult than the litigation course, but it was helpful.
n/a
None at this time.
More online classes in other subjects too, for those of us who can't make it to day classes can do so on the internet.

She makes the subject matter interesting and understandable. I have had her for two classes and appreciate her thorough preparation and enthusiasm.

Very encouraging and allows alot of hands on learning.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is very bubbly, and seems very excited about the subjects she teaches which makes the student excited as well.
Professor J's major strengths as a teacher would have to be her knowledge in the area and how she makes the class more enjoyable by doing small activities and giving more background knowledge of what the law is all about
She has a very positive attitude and is good at getting the class involved in the discussions.
She knows the subject very well and gave good real life situations to inform us. Well rounded knowledge on the subject.

There was a lot of interactive activities to make learning fun. She has a quirky sense of humor and presented her lessons in an effective way that was easy to understand "law language."
Very kind and flexible allowing for learning at the student's pace despite the course not being an online course (which are generally considered the courses to be taken for that kind of thing).

I wouldn't suggest anything really already a very well organized class.

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
n/a
Professor J allowed us to get text messages which really helped stay on track with assignments and also made sure we all understood the concept of the law
She made a sheet to sign up for meeting with her. It helped alot to speak with her.
she always open to talk to students after class.
She informed us about text message notifications for assignments, which was another way to get reminders about due dates. She sent out email reminders as well about assignments or due dates. She also suggested we meet her during office hours on several occasions.
Checked up on students that were missing class and made sure that everyone understood what we were on.
she went above and beyond for her students. she is the professor that professors should want to be like. shes the best hands down.

She is very knowledgeable and gives great assignments.
pleasant

15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She in very accessible and i can always ask questions and get a direct answer. she also encourages all of us and for the students who stick it out she is very fair and helpful.

If not, she would use actual stories or whatever examples or acting out to show it how they are related and why they are. She always encourages us to do research to further our study such as our Discuss Board homework.
She was very willing to work with us to access the course material despite scheduling challenges.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Prof. Jaworowski's has alot of strengths as a teachear. She communicates effectively with students, she is organized with her course plan, & always on time for class. This course is definitely right for her to teach because she has alot of knowledge of it.
She teached many important informantion about law that could be useful for students in the future
concern for students, ability to make you feel at ease and comfortable. encouragement to do well and excel. great teacher!
-Knew the subject well -Were able to answer student's questions -Explains a subject clearly and gives examples -Gave a reasonable amount of time for assignments and other tasks -Balances the amount of work; does not give TOO much work for the students -Available whenever needed; through email or office meetings -Good teaching skills: creates powerpoints, shows videos, etc for students with different learning techniques
Energetic and creative in ways of presenting information!
Susan Jaworowski's major strengths as a teacher is she is knowledgeable in the subject matter. This class is an online class. Her lessons were well prepared; the "lecture" (presentation), assignment and discussion portions were coordinated and if I paid attention to the presentation, many times I was able to participate in the discussions. Some of the assignments were challenging where I needed to access outside info to complete assignments. I appreciate this as I want to be challenged as a student.
Very organized. She made me feel like she cared about each and everyone of her students.
She's very pleasant and helpful. She is very knowledgable about this class.
She organizes the class content very well so that the goals are clear. She does not expect you to learn information by heart but make up your mind on issues and learn that way.
Able to present complicated material in clear, easy to understand way. Ability to engage students in an online class.
I think a strength would be your excellent writing. In the powerpoints I pretty much just read it on my own and partly listen to it because it is a bit monotonous toned.. Makes me loose interest, but thatʻs just me. I donʻt like to listen to radio talkers either. I really liked your writing and grammar though, I could learn a lot from it to better my own writing.
Communicates great with students, took the time/effort to get all students involved and interested in course material! She is a teacher that truly cares for all of her students
As a teacher, especially in an online course, is her quick to responses to questions or concerns as well as her style of personalized comments via pdf on our work or video. This made it easier for me as a student to understand what areas of my work needed to be addressed.
Her strengths were in the lessons she taught us every week, her teaching method using videos, video power points, and different readings. She also knew about the subjects that she taught very well.
Very organized and such a great teacher. I really enjoyed her class. She also made sure that everyone participated in class discussions by making sure everyone responds to at least one post.
Her well-known knowledge of all the material that she covered in this course is her major strengths. That made me confident in being in this course.
Makes learning fun and creative through great power point presentations, activities and videos.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I wouldn't suggest any changes to her because I like the way she teaches and I really do enjoy going to her class eventhough I am just a beginner in law.
n/a
-None
none
The time needed to watch the lectures and readings varied a lot each week. It would be nice if it would be somewhat evened out, so I could more easily plan how much time I will need for each week.
I would suggest, I guess to lighten up the lectures. Some lectures Iʻve had on online classes were not as.. well like I said, but I think every lecture was the same with the same voice just different words. I think if you brighten up the lectures, throw in a few jokes, do some relations to real life and just talk rather than just tell everything straight it would be more catching and more for something to tune in.
n/a
No changes are necessary. She's a great teacher.
Everything was great in her class. There's nothing I can think of that I would change.
N/A
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She helps students if they have any confusions with anything, and she frequently ask students if they have any questions. She also invites her students to her office if they want to talk to her about anything regarding a particular topic or the class in general.
Susan does show concern for students she would offer student to go to her office when they need help and that when her office hour changed she would tell everyone at the beginner of class
Encouraged us to do well in her course. and if we needed anything of her in regards to the course then feel free to see her after class or office hrs.
Made personal attempts to memorize students names. Has a very open door policy and shows genuine concern.
At the end of the week's discussion, Susan including comments from students that she thought were "good" as she wrote general comments to the class. She gave reminders on when the major assignments were due which I appreciated because with my own daily work and family activities, there were a couple of time when I overlooked the due date but was able to complete the assignment on time because of her reminders. Susan went the extra mile in order for me to succeed in the class.
She responded to emails. When she wrote her discussion debriefs she named some of the students that commented on something interesting, or worth mentioning. It was nice to see my name in her debriefs every once in a while.
encouraging students to participate in the class discussion.
She was always prompt in responding to students concerns. And she gave really good feedback on our assignments so we could improve for the next.
I think you showed a lot of concern. Whenever I needed a response you submitted on promptly and efficiently. I liked that because there were many teachers that wouldnʻt let me do anything to make up a test or something like that. I liked you concern for each student and understand that some students just make simple mistakes that can always be fixed.
responded quickly to questions, graded material ALWAYS on time, was involved herself in discussion boards with other students.
Professor Jaworowski expressed concern in her comments and responses to our work as well as engagin in our discussions boards versus just looking to see what we post.
She showed concern for her students by getting back to received e-mails that held important questions that needed tending to.
She promptly responded to emails and private messages on laulima.
Always open to questions and feedback
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, i would reccommend other students to take her class because she is a great teacher and she makes this law course both interesting and fun.
yes! knows the subject and makes you feel at ease. always encouraging.
Definitely. She's a great teacher and really cares for her students. Learning is really interesting with Prof. J and you will definitely know A LOT more information after this class.
Absolutely! Professor J is fun, attention grabbing, kind, and extremely knowledgeable!
Yes, I would recommend Susan to students because it appears she knows the subjects/topics she presents and she appears to show genuine concern that students succeed in their learning.
Yes, great teacher, and you will learn a lot of very useful information.
yes. she is smart.
Yes, most well structured online class I've taken so far.
I would definitely recommend her, because her class is a great introduction to law.
I would recommend you as a teacher for this course although I donʻt have any peers on the same path as I do but if I do come across friends wanting to be paralegals, I would definitely send you name by to enroll into this class. It really did teach me a lot because I came into this class with no knowledge whatsoever in paralegals.
Most definitely.
I would recommend her class to other because it is very organized, it concise and has a variety of learning tools such as videos, powerpoints and reading versus just readings. It is more engaging.
Yes I would because she not only teaches well to her online students, but she also offers her help outside of the classroom. She cares about how well her students are doing in her course and if her students need help or extra information she gives it to them.
I would definitely recommend her to students!
Definitely!!!! Because she has the knowledge, background, education and experience in this field, I would HIGHLY recommend this course. Its nothing better than to learn from someone who know's their material.
Yes, very dynamic teacher. You can see she enjoys teaching.
Yes. She is very passionate about the subject matter and teaches it in a fun and informative way
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
To be honest, she is one of the proffesors that i never hesitate to talk to if I have any questons or concerns. I like the way she teaches her students. She really helps her students when they don't understand a certain topic.
Definitely a great resource of knowledge for anyone interested in the future legal profession.
I really enjoyed the videos she uploaded. It made me feel that she was actually there to give a lecture.
Great teacher.
great professor. She knows how to teach and learn a lot about law from this class.
She's great!
Thank you for the awesome semester!!
I thorougly enjoyed the course and appreciated that she was such an attentive professor. Layout of her class was easy to work with and did not confuse me. you do not see professors like prof j often!!
Excellent professor! The best one this semester :)
N/A
Her personality is cheerful and she presents the material in a way that is easy to learn. I really enjoyed the class and learned a great deal.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She knows whhat she's doing. She great at communicating instructions, and she's changed my thoughts about online classes. I work full time and online courses make it easy for me to accomplish my goals. I had a bad exp once, and she's changed it.
Prof J is extremely organized and made the online class interesting by teaching through a variety of media. She brought what could have been a "text book" - 101 class into the real world with her personal videos of the judicial system in Honolulu to videos and articles from the real world that was directly linked to the subject matter each week.
She knows how to use the internet will to communicate with students taking an online class.
She makes the subject matter interesting and entertaining by adding humor to her classes. She explains things very well too.
Her organize is very good and I have learned a lot!
She definitely is well versed in her ability to teach this course. She makes you feel very welcome in her class and readily answers your questions thoroughly and in a very short time after receiving it. She gives you assignments that test your skills and allows you to think for yourself. She is very cordial and she is readily available to contact when questions arise. She is a well of knowledge and readily makes that knowledge available to students.
effective at explaining concepts and keeping constant contact with class.
Her teaching style is extremely effective and professional.
Prof. J is a great teacher and is very knowledgeable in her field. I hope to take more classes from her.
Participation
She is very knowledgeable and is very caring towards her students. She goes out of the way to help her students figure out what they're doing wrong or if they need help
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None
none - I actually loved her writing assignments and would have like to do more of those.
n/a
None.
I have sent several emails for her. She gave me responses some of them but not all questions.
I think the course is great and is made easy to understand.I think that principles are well handled. There just needs to be more practice on Ethics rules and the knowledge of which one to use and why. It is a portion of the class that is very challenging and I still don't feel that I confidently know enough to feel comfortable. I still feel very inadequate in this area.
n/a
None.
none
Try to rewrite your quizzes, For an English major, I was really confounded with the way you worded some of your quiz questions.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She's replied to email quickly.
She was extremely timely in her posts on the discussion board and with emails to the class. She was very prompt in returning graded assignments and provided so much explanation through her power points, quiz reviews... everything she provided was well done and well thought out.
feedback on our discussion boards.
Yes she did. She wanted us all to participate in the discussion boards and if anything needed further clarification, she was willing to help.
She showed a lot of concern for the students in her prompt attention to your questions. She, also, had a lot of websites and provided a lot of pertinent and valuable course material in videos. On the websites, she gave a step by step analysis of how to use the site and the valuable information on that site. She presented important information and interviews with other paralegals. She is a very caring professor, who is constantly trying to make the course easier and make each student feel more comfortable around legal and paralegal processes. I consequently feel that I am a more knowledgable person now and I totally feel comfortable in most areas of the course study.
constantly emailed the class and posted weekly reminders for quizzes and assignments.
By helping each student succeed.
by putting a lot of effort into creating assignments in a similar way as how work would be received in a law firm.
She went out of her way to give extra work or aid to students who needed help or were lost in class.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Most def! :)
I definitely would. She is a great teacher. Because of Prof J I would also recommend the Paralegal program, she brought so much information about the profession and shed light on the role of paralegals.
yes
Yes. She is a great professor!
I would definitely recommend her to any student looking to learn some very valuable information. She is a very great professor and she helps you a lot. I especially enjoyed the practice of actually being able to do some paralegal work for a law firm. It was very inspiring to be able to do this. It test your abilities in the area. It brings you to a new height of learning.
yes, see above.
Yes, she is one of the best teachers I've ever had.
yes - great prof.
Prof J is very knowledgeable and understanding person.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's a great instructor.
I have taken online classes through the University of Phoenix which are amazingly organized and thorough. These private university online classes are absolutely professional and developed to ensure high levels of learning. Coming back to KCC, I found Prof J's online course equally well done and I was extremely impressed and so thankful I can receive this high level of learning at KCC.
It was a pleasure having her as my teacher for my first law courses.
I love her teaching style. She gives a lot of work, but it is because she wants us to learn as much as possible.
I thank her for the great things that I have learned. She is a very good teacher and she does her upmost to make you feel that you are comfortable in what you are doing and learning. She makes you aware of many things that you need to know and she makes sure that you totally understand and can use the course material to the best of my ability. She is a well of information and makes sure that she makes that information available to her students.

There are not too many more things that I can say about this remarkable teacher. She is just the best and she makes you feel like an accomplished student when it comes to aspects of law. She makes you feel comfortable in your surroundings and helps you accomplish your goals as a student. I had a great semester and I have her to thank for that. She makes you want to work hard and gives you constant encouragement.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Professor J is encouraging, hard working, insightful, thoughtful, and provides excellent feedback and updates on our grades and how we are doing in the course. She has set a very high bar for online courses. It shows in her preparation and in the way it is presented. We feel very fortunate to be able to experience enrolling in an online course with her.
Very knowledgeable and well organized.
she knows the subject very well and is very organized which makes for a very great learning environment
Among Susan Jaworowski's strengths as a teacher are her excellent organizational skills (i.e., with this being an online course, her Laulima page was very well structured, easy to use, and overall "user-friendly"); her knowledge in the area; and her desire to pass on her knowledge to students (i.e., she makes it a point to ask if students understand the material, and is prompt in responding back to questions).
Knowledge in law, knowledge in technology. She is a very caring teacher.
I love Professor J, she always knows what she is teaching and care for her students who might find behind a little. I love how organized he is and her class is easy to follow on what she expects from us. Anytime questions were raised, she addressed them immediately. I think she is a great professor.
She is very organized and knowledgeable.
She adds humor to her classes and she really knows the subject! She encourages everyone to participate in class and responds with good feedback.
There is not enough room in the box to list Prof. J's major strengths as there are just too many of them. In addition to her level of knowledge on the subject, her narrated slides are fantastic! She explains everything clearly and she makes learning the material great fun - even when it's boring stuff. The elements Prof. J incorporates into this online class are of the highest calibur. You get reading material, the videos, CALI, discussion boards, etc.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None. Keep up the excellent work!
At this point, I feel that the course is very well-designed and works effectively. Therefore, I do not have any suggestions to make regarding changes.
I know it is impossible, but please teach all courses! We love her!
Perhaps some extra credit or other assignments to help us practice more with that we are learning. For example Trademark and Copyright were very confusing and if she was able to have us do more work with these topics, I might have learned more.
The format of the quizzes, being multiple choice, does not really show how much I know.
Great organization of the class material, presented it in a way that was clear to the students, made the class fun!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
On numerous occassions... One in particular was for the group of students who met with the accreditation team in March 2012 as she went out of her way to pick up pizza for the group. There are other times via e-mail that she has shown concern and offered wonderful encouragement.
Susan Jaworowski showed concern for students by making herself available for questions, and always gave prompt replies. She also is very understanding of the fact that sometimes students wind up with a need to turn in assignments at the last minute.
By emails after the quiz and discussions
Yes she did. She acknowledged to the class that this would be a difficult topic to get through. She always answered to questions promptly and gave good explanations to clarify any questions.
She was very accessible through email and office hours.
By making sure that we all turned our assignments in on time.
She shows concern for the students in the amount of work she puts into her class. There is constant interaction with her and you can tell she really wants you to learn the information and be able to apply it! I must say, I'm not a fan of discussion boards but I look forward each week to the email that Prof. J sends to us about HER thoughts on our discussion board question (and where we were on and off-track in our class discussion). Students spend a lot of time "discussing" what is printed in the book which is okay; it shows they are reading the assignments, but the input from Prof. J really brings the pieces together.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Definitely. Her online courses are top notch and she has a passion for teaching Law.
Yes, the course content was so much easier to understand along with her lectures
yes. i have taken several classes with her and i have enjoyed and excelled beyond my potential. she is an excellent teacher.
I would recommend Susan Jaworowski to students for the reasons stated above.
YES! Why... just take one class from her, you will know it!
Yes - she is the most organized Professor, and although you have to work for your grade, you will learn the most by taking her challenging courses.
Yes, because her courses are always challenging -- never boring. She is very organized and prompt in her responses.
Yes. She is knowledgeable and makes learning fun. She also lets us use our notes on tests.
Yes, great teacher, great class!
Absolutely. You have to work hard but she's one of the best instructors in the Paralegal program and you will absolutely learn the information.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Keep up the fantastic work!
Susan Jaworowski is an excellent instructor who has a sincere interest and desire to educate students. She is a very fair grader, and works hard to help students understand the material.
I hope all videos will be uploaded on YouTube. Could not view the videos on iPad or iPhone.
Professor J, makes me want to go to online class every week to learn. She has taught me so much and I am grateful for the things that she has taught me.
I really like her knowledge of pop culture. The examples she gives are recent and relevant to today.
18. Other comments:
We are very fortunate to have Professor J, overseeing and teaching in the Paralegal department. I look forward to enrolling in other Paralegal courses.
I'm glad that she posted her thoughts and feedback at the end of each week. It provided more "food for thought" even after the unit was completed.
Professor J is the best!
I have had her for three classes now and I would take another if I could. She really cares about students and how we are doing. If we have any questions, we just ask and she answers. She returns assignments on time and responds to email promptly. All around a great professor. I can see why she is the head of the paralegal program.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Knows her subject area very well, is engaging with students, open for questions, very helpful.
Susan's strength was she knows her law stuff.
Prof. J. is an outstanding teacher who provides her class with enthusiastic, creative, out-of-the-box learning experiences to grasp an overwhelming amount of complex material in a short amount of time. Her adept proficiency with Laulima allows her to offer an extremely robust learning environment for her students.
She is just a great teacher all together.
Extremely well organized. Very caring, and passionate about her subject. It is very evident that a lot of work goes into her presentations which is very much appreciated as it keeps things interesting. Talks a little too fast for note taking at times, but very helpful both in and out of the classroom.
She is really knowledgeable in the field of Law. It shows it what she teaches the class and how she teaches the material to the class. She is also always willing to find out more about a topic that a student has brought up or questions and follows-up. Outside of the course she is also very helpful with any other law course you are having trouble with.
She brings in many resources to illustrate the concepts, such as videos, websites, guest speakers.
She's a great teacher. Very funny; keeps the three hour night class awake and participating.
She really wants everyone to clearly understand the material if we have any doubts she has no problem after class quickly explaining more clearly if we didnt undertand the first time.
Professor J. has a lot of energy, which is extremely encouraging for students taking night classes. She covers the material well, and ensures a thorough understanding. She provides good exercises to involve students in the teaching and learning process, and she was very engaging.
She is very excited about her job.
Prof. J makes learning the material easy and fun. For an online course, it was extremely interactive. She also is very prompt in responding to students' questions, and providing feedback to tests/quizzes/assignments/postings.
Well organized, greatly knowledgeable about the subject. One of the most efficient classes I have seen in terms of online teaching.
Organization. Everything was presented really well and all the information was easily accessible.
The syllabus was clear and easy to follow. It was good to have the list of expectations for us so that we could keep up with the class and know what to expect during the semester.
At first I thought the subject was well over my head for a first semester student. However, Prof. J made the sujbect so interesting that I found myself diving into the subject, wanting to learn more. The assignments and quizzes were challinging at time, but it brought application to the subject matter and gained valuable learning experiences.
She was very effective, I learned alot in her class. I like her teachig style.
The online discussion board was so engaging, I can't imagine how engaging her in class discussions are.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None.
I probably not twist the questions around in the quizzes. It can get confusing.
Sometimes I found myself getting restless if we spent too much time looking at websites or watching a video, which I felt I could do on my own time. Maybe it would be helpful in those instances if we had more directed searching, like looking for answers to particular questions instead? Very rarely, quizzes seemed to be on material not specifically covered in class. It might be helpful to students to point out instances where quizzes might veer off from class lectures/materials.
None
If possible, put the Powerpoint presentations up at least 24 hours before class so it can be printed in a format that is suitable for the students. Really appreciate the printed PPT in class but the print is very small and there's not enough room to take notes. Better if the format for note taking is selected.
N/A
No
the discussin boards I feel do not help, I understand why she has them but i feel maybe with more assignments and less discussion boards then we will learn more.
I think I would like follow up comments on the discussion posts. Some of them were very interesting because opinions varied greatly, but I would have like to have had the opinion of someone in the field of law at the very end of all the posts. Maybe not everyone would be willing to go back and read it, but I would have. :)
Please do not use PowerPoint presentations if you are not going to edit them properly. Volume levels should remain consistent throughout. Also, if your presentation ends suddenly, mid-slide/mid-sentence the student will miss part of the lecture and stare angrily at their monitor for longer than is healthy or appropriate. Please review all media and documents prior to posting. If a student submits a .doc file riddled with typos you can safely assume your teaching at a community college - when an instructor does the same it's insulting.
I can't think of any changes that need to be made to this course. It was very easy to follow and very interesting.
None
Sometimes students felt like they were attacking or disagreeing in an argumentative way. I felt a little uncomfortable speaking about my opinion and having other students write about it the way they did.
None, Prof. J has it all going on!
I understand that she wanted the discussion boards to be between the students of our class and that she didn't want to sway our opinions, but I still wish she had participated in them as a student herself.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Yes, she was very easy to get ahold of if I had any concerns or questions. She made time for all students. She was fair in all aspects.
Susan would ask the students if they needed more clarifications in area they were struggling in.
Prof. J. shows the utmost care for her students by sending them reminders via email and posting weekly update reviews of her class, which are extremely useful in keeping track of materials covered and absolutely pertinent to helping her students complete assignments on a timely basis.
she made me feel like she really cared.
She's in contact via GMail and encourages participation. She provides print outs of the PPT presentations as needed.
She gives examples of what the real world would be like in this profession and is very encouraging of every student in the class to participate in discussions and class activities.
She reminds us to take quizzes and to do discussion questions every week.
She was available before and after class as well as through emails. Even if you interrupted, her before her moving on to the next subject, she listed and answered questions.
If she noticed we were slipping she would pull us aside and just ask what is going on and actually listen and try to understand she does care for her students in a huge way!
She was always available during breaks and after class for questions and concerns. She was very prompt in answering questions.
Yes, I appreciate any instructor who takes the time to follow up with students who may be having difficulties - rather than just assuming someone is lazy.
Prof. J was always very prompt in responding to students, whether it was by email or via the discussion boards. She also obviously put a great deal of time and effort into devising a system for conveying all the information for this course into an online class that was quite interactive and easy to follow.
She would consistently be available for email. If you had a question/concern she would answer that day or the next day at the latest.
She always had the discussion board open to any questions we would have about the course.
She recapped the discussions and the subject we went over every week which was good to end the week with.
She always responded to our discussion on the discussion board and very interactive with each topice presented to students.

16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes! She is a great professor! Especially if you want to learn more about the legal field. One tip I would give is if you have questions or concerns and are not doing as well in the class that you had hoped, seek her help from the very beginning! I was hesitant to seek help, but once I did, her advice helped tremendously.
I would definitely recommend Susan to students because she knows her law stuffs.
I would most definitely recommend Prof. J. to other students! Her classes are fun and make sometimes very dry material a lot more exciting by letting students role play in mock sessions. Nothing beats learning something from firsthand experience, which makes the lessons far more memorable.
Yes
Yes, she's very knowledgeable and her assignments encourage one to think and therefore learn a great deal.
Yes I would recommend her to other students. She is a great way to start of a journey through the paralegal program and a great professor to learn from about law.
Yes. It's a great course. I learned a lot.
Yes, because she's such a great teacher.
I deffinetly would. She has passion for the subject she lays out all the work and tells you from the begining what to do and if you complete it all exactly to her specifications then you will pass and learn the material!
Yes, she is a very engaging instructor, able to simplify difficult concepts and encourage students to both express their opinions and consider others. The class was enjoyable because of her teaching style.
Yes, she eased everyone into this 100-level law class and I would be shocked to find out anyone did poorly.
I would definitely recommend Prof. J to other students because she puts a great deal of time and effort into making her classes easy to follow for the students, and she designs the coursework to flow in a logical fashion. She also is very student-oriented in making herself available for students to ask her questions.
I would recommend Professor Jaworowski because she is knowledgeable, efficient, organized, and cares about her students.
Yes. It was a really well organized online class.
Yes. She is a good professor and well organized.
Definitely! She's great on the subject, involves student participation and discussion, pushes you to do your best, uses up-to-date technology to present class. Overall it was a great experience!
This was a very good class
Yes, I would. I thought LAW 101 was a good introductory course to our three branches of government.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Great professor!
I would like to say thank you for a fantastic job in teaching LAW 101. Hope to see you in other LAW classes.
Prof. J. rocks! Her attention to present a very comprehensive learning experience for her students and constant encouragement to be informed citizens is amazing. Her online discussion questions are thought-provoking without being rote. I wish all my other teachers had been as thorough and prompt as her in grading and allowing for review of completed assignments. Maybe she should be teaching some of the other teachers how to teach, especially how to take advantage of Laulima? I also appreciated that she was lively, humorous and down-to-earth in her lectures.
She listens to her students,.
None
I wish she taught more law classes I would love to take her again!
She was very clear about her grading criteria and expectations, and she continuously encouraged students in their work. The material was not overwhelming, which is a relief when you are taking a 101 class, as some try to pack too much into a basic course.
Nice woman, but technology does not seem to be her forte.
I would like to thank Prof. J for making this 101 class so interesting and easy to follow. Having taken other online classes, I realize there are just a many ways to structure one as there are for face-to-face classes. However, Prof. J has found a way that is both interactive and interesting, and something I looked forward to each week.
I would love to take another class instructed by her.
GREAT JOB!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She brings the subject to life and has a great sense of humor. She encourages all of us to participate in class. Overall she is a great professor.
Prof. J has a sincere interest and concern in passing on her knowledge in the course material to the students in her class. She uses a variety of media to get the information across, and gives students prompt feedback on their work. She also is extremely organized with regards to how the course is set up, and does an excellent job of breaking down the subject matter into workable "chunks."
She is very informative on the subjects she teaches and she really emphasizing giving real examples of how criminal law applies despite what the textbook states. She also does a very good of explaining and teaching how criminal law applies to Hawaii as compared to what the textbook states.
She is clear and organized. She follows the schedule and she has knowledge of her subject.
She knows the subject matter well and explains it in a way that is easily understandable to the students. She brings in experts to talk about the areas that she is teaching us about, which helps us understand how this knowledge is important in the real world. She is there for each of the students when they need help, and is willing to offer solutions to any problems that may come up.
She's a great teacher. Very funny; keeps the three hour night class awake and participating.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None. I loved the course!
As of this time, I do not see anything that needs to be changed in the course. Everything seemed to flow well, and being able to have guest speakers come in was great as well.
No changes, she is a great teacher.
None.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Yes she did.
Prof. J was always available for students to talk to either before or after class, or by arrangement on campus. But she was also very prompt with replies to emails as well. Being able to email her and get her quick response was a great time-saver.
She always answer emails, she always walking around in the classroom making sure we can follow the lecture.
If a student wanted to talk to her she was there to talk to them after class or during her office hours. If a student had a problem she was there to listen and offer a solution to the problem.
She was available before and after class as well as through emails. Even if you interrupted, her before her moving on to the next subject, she listed and answered questions.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes. She knows what she is talking about and class is never boring. We do in class exercises that help with the understanding of the material.
I would definitely recommend Prof. J to other students because she is obviously student-oriented, in both her desire to pass on her knowledge to students, as well as ensuring that her students understand the material well. She has also gone through great lengths to structure her coursework so that it is easily understood and followed.

17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I really enjoyed her class and look forward to having her as a professor next semester!
I think Prof. J's efforts to make sure students gain a full understanding of the material in the class shows her desire to break down the subject into smaller parts that make it easier to understand. She makes it all look easy and effortless, but when looking closer, it becomes obvious that she's put a lot of time and energy into structuring the course to flow the way it does. I'm very impressed with her dedication to promoting the students' education.
I think I said it all.
The guest speakers in class were great. They added a lot of value, humor and knowledge to the class time.
Nothing.

I liked all of the guest speakers we had. It helped to have people in the field come to talk to us.
I wish Prof. J added more real life situations from her own examples as a lawyer.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
she seems to have a passion for us being able to function well in our future positions. Tries to "head off" potential pitfalls in our future legal writing responsibilities.
She organized the class and legal writing material in an effective way that made legal writing a lot more understandable. I also appreciated the time that was given to re-work on our writing projects.
Subject matter expertise in legal writing, fair grader, provides many opportunities for students to engage in cooperative learning, utilizes technology as a learning tool, open to suggestions for improving classroom learning, available for assistance, creates a positive learning environment inside and outside the classroom, tailors her teaching to fit the paralegal program, open-minded, and enjoys her job.
She knows the subject well and was very helpful to students. she always made sure everyone understood the subject matter.
extremely knowledgeable. creative, caring, organized, effiecient
ability to explain difficult concepts
she know's her stuff!
She is very personable and extremely knowledgeable in the subject. Her enthusiasm for teaching is quite obvious.
She was a very energetic teacher. Always offered her time outside of class to assist students with questions. Knew the subject matter very well.
Prof J. is very knowledgeable in the subject area and is very passionate about teaching. She is a very effective teacher and uses creative scenarios and videos to introduce students to the 'real world' of a paralegal.
Professor J is a great instructor who is enthusiastic about the subject matter and teaching her students. She is always trying to get us involved in class and thinking critically.
Knows a lot.
Prof J's major strengths are listed in questions 1-12 above. She not only meets the criteria, she exceeds it beyond measure.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes
None.
none
none
nothing.
I think Professor J and Ms. Ogawa need to get together to discuss how their grading and what they're teaching. I feel like I get points taken off in one class when I implement things I've learned in the class. It's a bit confusing.
n/a
None. The course is tough, but it's a really great to be able to know how to write legal documents.
Seemed too rushed. Maybe stressed out.
None!
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
gave opportunity for questions; when some students seemed reluctant to participate, drew them out in a non-threatening manner. Gave time to entertain our questions, and didn't rush us when we still didn't grasp the answers.
Any question that we had was given a clear and concise answer. She was also extremely prompt on responding back to e-mails which I appreciated. In addition, she made herself available during and after class for any questions regarding class material.
She treats each student as an individual and tries to meet each person's academic needs. She encourages students to find ways to participate in outside activities, whether it's recreation, or assisting others through volunteer work. She's available for counseling and for other assistance.
always helpful and always patient
encouraged us to asked questions and gave lots of group activities which help us understand how the professor wanted us to do our work
she would stay after class to help students or answer their questions.
She takes the time to ensure that we're learning the information and is easily accessible.
She encouraged questions and provided answers right away.
She's always encouraging us to ask questions, and she gives us loads of feedback.
Made comments, asked them questions.
Prof. J shows concern through her method of teaching. She works really hard at ensuring the students understand how to produce quality work.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes -- but I'd tell them to plan to work hard!!
Yes, Professor Jaworowski is a great teacher that knows the material she's teaching. She is also great at giving feedback on assignments and answering questions promptly.
Yes. By the end of the semester, students will learn how to problem-solve and write as a paralegal.
yes. she encourages you to take risks and helps you if you don't understand and gives you the opportunities to make a paper better and helps you along the way.
absolutely...she is the best proffessor I have ever had!
yes, she is patient and always there to help out students
yes. because she is a great teacher
It's a required course. I would recommend that students take Legal Writing with her as opposed to other instrutors.
Yes. She certainly knew what she was teaching and how to teach it. In other words she knew her stuff! I would definitely recommend her to other students. She challenged me to improve my writing skills and I'm certainly ending the semester as an improved writer.
Yes. She is an excellent professor!
Yes, because she's a great instructor. She knows her stuff and is always willing to help students understand the material.
She tests a lot and gives you an idea of how you are doing. That part of it is good.
Yes!
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Her feedback on my writing assignments were great! It definitely helped me to strengthen my writing, and also to pinpoint my weaknesses.
She provides many opportunities for students to learn and to improve their legal writing.
all good things
she is a great teacher.
She's a great professor who obviously loves teaching. She is extremely intelligent and readily passes on her knowledge to students. Legal Writing is definitely one of my favorite courses this semester and I feel that information is applicable in real life.
Nothing else to say.
Legal writing is a very difficult class. I think we have many different levels of English in the class that may not be up to standard. Maybe people need to test first to see how well their English is first before signing up for this. This class is very time intensive. Assignments are not always clear. A lot of computer uploading. Powerpoints have too much information. Some of the exercises did not seem to be helpful. Some were.
18. Other comments:
Professor J is a wonderful teacher!
Thank you Prof. J for a great semester! You really helped me to develop and improve my legal writing skills. The skills I learned in your class will definitely be put to use.
Nope.
I learned a lot but it was painful. Also the class seemed to have a very competitive and aggressive spirit. Some may like that. It was difficult for me.
I'm not sure if Law 203 is the class to do this, but I would like to have one of the classes in the Paralegal courses spend more time on grammar and citations. Understanding how important these elements are, especially in the classes that come up later in the program, the "brush over" done by Ben Carroll (and the fact that you don't receive any feedback from him so you don't know if you've cited anything correctly in his classes)is not sufficient.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Her expertise, knowledge and network in the field. Her passion and character help us to keep up.
great teacher, she is clear, and she knows her materials. she give the students opportunities to learn. her class is well organized. i took online and i loved it.
Wealth and breadth of knowledge and course resources. She works very hard on the PPTs, videos, assignments and other resources. I appreciate all of her hard work.
She is very organized and always responds to questions and concerns in a very timely manner.
Professor Jaworowski is very knowledgeable in all the areas of law, which allows for students such as myself to feel confident that questions are effectively addressed.
Enthusiasm and passion for teaching law to students. Also knowledgeable and informative about our judicial system and the law. Potential paralegals will learn a lot from enrolling in this course.
Organized Great knowledge of law Compassionate Use of real life examples to apply assignments to practical situations
She definitely knew the material and was able to teach it well
She creates a lot of videos, shares quite a bit of info with students, and most of the assignments were useful and relevant. [i don't care for the quizzes, but i understand the point of them]
very well organized, extremely intelligent, very personable
I like the way she teaches, it is fun and full of enthusiasm.
Personal enthusiasm for the subject matter, and a passion for instilling that same enthusiasm in her students. Works hard to keep classes interesting and varied.
knows what she teaches interesting personality easy going smart
Very well-informed; her background in law was very helpful
She know what she's teaching, she cares about her student's progress, and is super organized
Her knowledge of the subject and her ability to teach it
She was very helpful and made sure that we understood the content. She took the time to answer questions and if there was not enough time she was available through either email or office hours.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I know you are an iPhone user. Is it possible to convert your future videos (including other classes) to either youtube or iPhone/iPad friendly? Sometimes I wanted to watch the video when I was outside and my iPad did not support the format of the video. I had to come home to watch it. If I could watch the videos anywhere, that would be so helpful!
none. she makes us work a lot, but you will learn.
For online classes, start the course week on Monday, not Wednesday or Thursday. Easier to keep track of the week number that we are in and less likely to worry about homework issues over the weekends.
None.
N/A
hmmmm...i don't like having to log on to 3 different sites to access my class material, discussion area and email, but that's the only thing I can think of...
none
Nothing :)
more clarity on tests
I took this course just to gain a general understanding of Hawaii law, because that was how it was depicted in the course description. However, the more I attended this class, the more it seems to shout, "be a paralegal!" The focus of the class were mostly related back to, "when you become a paralegal..." which is not what I was looking for at all, because if I do pursue a legal career, I do not wish to be a paralegal. I just wish that the course was not so focused on becoming a paralegal.
none. I honestly can't think of any way that she could be any better than she is now
No classes on Monday between 12:15-1:30 due to administrative meetings
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
I love the opportunity for extra credit assignments and rubric. I loved the short videos that she made every week. I felt that I am cared about and she wants to make sure I was getting something out of this class.
she answer email right away, i email her constantly and she ALWAYS answer right away. she cares about her sutudents.
Always answers questions via email and other means promptly.
She was very empathetic and understanding. She listened and responded to questions and concerns and provided timely feedback.
When a natural disaster occurred, she inquired early on if anyone was affected by the situation.
She responded with info and ideas in the discussion board. She usually responded pretty quickly to my emails.
always replied to any contact or message promptly, discussed any concern or confusion...expressed genuine concern for our success
She does all she can to help students to understand the subject.
Tried to draw everyone in, noticing which students seemed reticent about participating, and making it comfortable for them. Answer questions submitted online in a timely manner.
via email and in person if u have any questions
She always gave students advice and always wanted them to succeed
when i was having a hard time she reached out to me and got me back on track immediately
She was readily available outside of class via email
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Most definitely. Although there are so much to learn (I thought this class could be divided into two semesters) you will never regret taking this class because it would become your asset.
yes, because she is fair, well organized, and she has good comunication skills
Yes.
Yes, I would recommend her to others because she is an excellent teacher, very organized and knowledgeable. I learned a lot in this class.
Yes, Professor Jaworowski allows us to understand the government and how we as citizens can be more involved and participate. Further, covered in the course are situations that may arise while practicing as a paralegal in the workplace. I appreciate the dedication put forth and the high degree of ethics necessary along with the consequences involved when working in the legal profession.
Yes, I would highly recommend this course as it was interesting, informative, and gave me a much better understanding of not only law but also about paralegals and how they function.

Yes, the information taught was done in a organized manner. It was easy to learn the lesson independently.
Yes! She seems to be very interested in providing a good learning experience for students, her course is interesting, her course is not 'too' demanding [of course, that is 'realitive']...
ABSOLUTELY! she is the best professor i have ever had. her classes are tough but i really learned A LOT! i wish she taught them all!!!
Yes, I would. Because she is awesome, and im sure all of my friends will like her.
Yes -- She helps you take an interest in what is going on around you. I have even recommended that my friends on the Mainland try to find a similar class in their areas and audit it. It won't be as good, but it is fun to get involved and knowledgeable about the "ruling" systems in our lives.

18. Other comments:
I thoroughly taking Law 101 online. I felt like I learned a lot about the law and how it relates to every day life.
Thank you so much Proffesor J! You've really touched me and I appreciate everything you've done for me this semester
It would be great if Law101 would be approved for ds. It almost ruined my chances of graduating on time.
Thank you!

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Excellent teacher and very knowledgeable on the course subject.
Susan Jaworowski's course is so well-organized that it is possible to know where you stand at all times. Her weekly quizzes are immediately graded and you can identify your strengths, and repair your weaknesses. Every week represents a particular topic and all the study material for that week is related to that topic. Her weekly Discussion Board allows everyone to participate and exchange ideas in a greater way than is possible in the classroom. The videos that she prepares makes it feel like you are receiving personal attention from a very personable and pleasant instructor. I think her outstanding success as a teacher stems from her outstanding personality and character. It's obvious that she cvares a lot about what she does for her students. She goes all-out and I am completely grateful.
She encourages the students to speak their minds on the discussion boards, and has many course videos that convey the subject matter well.
Wealth and breadth of knowledge and resources.
She keeps us and herself up to date on changes to IP laws and practices as well as the related industries. And her lessons are well planned out, have original examples to connect us with the information.
Susan Jaworoski is a very organized teacher and shows a lot of concerns for her students. In addition, I like how she includes various resources to help us understand the subject matter more.
Knowledge about the material and a great speaker even though all the classes were online
The great incorporation of media in her online class and the information she provides to "computer-challenged" students to make sure they too are able to access the material without having to her contact her.
She seems very personable
Professor J tries to make the subject matter interesting to her students. She is knowledgeable and does her best to help her students understand the material.
Prof. J is very patient and if you don't understand she willing to break everything down to simple terms. She's awesome!!
She knows the subject matter and is very enthusiastic about finding material outside of the class book aiding in more knowledge.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
More videos and possibly another course reference book.
Don't worry. If any changes are needed, she will think of what they are! I can't think of a thing that needs changing.
none
Start the course week on a Monday, not Wednesday or Thursday. Easier to avoid homework on the weekends.
None
Give the 3rd assignment at least 2 weeks before the finals.
None.
More cali lessons, those lessons make uderstand certain parts easier.
I don't know if she will go this route, but if she happens to have a joint effort for an assignment I will dread this as with an online course you really don't have the knowledge before hand on the availability and personalities of the students.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
By responding to questions and concerns in an appropriate and timely manner.
She anticipates and identifies any problems we may have with the material and assignments. If you identify a concern or issue, she will listen and even make an adjustment (for example, rephrase a quiz question) if you have a cogent argument about your concern.
If a student posted a problem up on the discussion board, she was there reading it, and would get back to the student promptly.
Always answered questions promptly and thoroughly.
She sent us extra information to assist us in a comfortable final exam experience, like the best times to go if we don't want to wait for hours. And whenever there was a problem with the laulima lesson materials she would notify us of the problem and tell us when the problem should be solved by.
- Providing lots of resources for learning -
Yes. She does a thorough mid-semester review to let students that are following behind what their grade is and how they can improve to bring up the grade or avoid failing the class.
Professor J is there to answer whatever questions or concerns we may have.
She gets back to concerns via email asap.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes the class is well structured and very enjoyable. i learned a lot.
Yes, her course is very well organized and she is available for questions and concerns by responding promptly.
I recommend her courses to all my fellow students when the opportunity arises.
Yes, this was a very interesting course, I would not have known as much as I know now about what it means to violate intellectual property laws if I had not taken this course.
Yes.
yes, definitely, because she has a perfect balance of coursework; the weekly quizzes and discussions (with the discussions promoting personal creativity and student interaction simultaneously.) Then a major assignment for each major IP area and a cumulative final.
Be on top of things. There is always so much to learn that once you start lagging behind, you can get overwhelmed by the amount of catching up that you need to do. Take advantage of all the resources that she provides. She has them there for a reason.
Yes, she is fair and lists everything you need to do for the week.
Yes. She is very thorough with the information she provides--videos, Power Points, etc.--and very knowledgeable about intellectual property, which can be confusing.
Sure. She seems like a good professor
Yes, because she's a great teacher, though I wouldn't recommend distance learning courses because they're a lot more challenging to understand. You really need to be a self-starter and well-organized to be truly successful.
Yes, she patient and answers any question you have in a timely manner.
Yes Very fair.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Excellent professor. I will be taking another one of her courses in the near future.
Susan Jaworowski deserves praise and awards.
Nothing
Great Professor. Very friendly and empathetic towards students.
None.
CALI is kinda tricky, try using less of it. The computing copyright protection was also very difficult, please explain it in a powerpoint to help students understand the information.
A very good instructor.
The second time I had her as an online instructor. I wish I had the availability to take a visual class with her as an instructor.
18. Other comments:
Excellent course. Bravo!!
None
I just wish the FINAL was not scheduled immediately after the last day of class. We only have a few days to go over all the content throughout the semester that I don't think it was enough time for us to study everything comprehensively.
Try to keep up with your emails and student questions on the discussion post half way into the semester
Online classes are usually hard to focus on - probably lack of discipline on my part.
Keep up the good work at UH and I like how we entertain you sometimes with our answers and you let us know that you are amused. (Also, keeping us inline with some of our stupid mistakes). As an attorney that I once worked for said- you have to know how to read.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She made learning legal writing a little more bearable because she is enthusiastic about the subject and has a good sense of humor.
She is an excellent teacher! She is able to present the material in a way that makes it clear and that you are able to grasp.
She knows the law well and the practical concepts of writing in the law. She has a very organized syllabus and is able to adhere to it. Therefore, the expectations were consistent, and the work was difficult, and in hind site, I appreciate what was learned. Very good instructor
She makes a difficult subject manageable. She grades fairly. She encourages her students.
She knows the subject matter well,and further conveys this knowledge to the students using knowledgeable guest speakers who work in the field.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
Give extra credit.
To be less strict, however, that would deplete the skills she is teaching.
None
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She stayed after class answering students questions.
She is always available through email and will respond in good time.
She was honest and upfront about our grades, our styles, and what changes would benefit us. From what I saw she did this for each student, amazingly adapting to each individual students issues. I like this as it shows that she is more concerned that the student absorb the most out of the class as opposed to just assigning projects and giving a numerical grade.
She was available during break and after class. She keeps track of her students.
If there is ever a problem that comes up she is always available to help in anyway that she can.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes because she knows subject very well.
Without hesitation, yes. She may seem hard at first, but at the end, a student should appreciate what they have learned.
Yes. She is fair and makes the material easy to learn. She uses creative and fun techniques for learning. She brings in guest-speakers to help us understand what things are like in the "real world."
Yes, she is a good teacher, over the course of this semester the grammer in my writing has improved due to her help.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thank you, I have learned the most practical and instilled information in this class from all other classes in the program.
She has a strong background.
nothing

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
She is very organized and well educated about the course and materials needed to be covered.
very smart and selects topics that teach, but also creates new interests.
Professor J. is very knowledgeable in the subject matter and an excellent teacher. She kept the class fun with different types of activities and class participation. She's very proficient with many computer programs and was able to provide us with many types of videos on line and different computer activities as well.
Excellent organizational skills; great in-class presentation style; varied instruction throughout the term; made the topics interesting, compelling, and fun.
She keeps the class from getting bored by having lots of different kinds of projects. I think that this also helps for people that are visual and other types of learners.
She knows what she is teaching and she knows how to instruct in the most effective ways.
Prof. Jaworowski is remarkably engaging and a great communicator. She makes the subject matter very clear and even entertaining to me. I know my classmates also have had this experience because we all remark on it to each other.
Professor Jaworowski explains the elements of law in a way that is understandable and clear. She is extremely enthusiastic about teach and it shows through her teaching. She's also prompt about grading assignments, quizzes, and discussion scores. Best teacher I've had at KCC!
Professor J is passionate regarding the law and government. She wants her students to succeed in her course, doing the best to there ability. She encourages class participation and acknowledges each student question and/or response.
Ms. Jaworoski is truly a pioneer in the field of Paralegal Education. Her use of technology to convey traditionally paper based ideas deserves recognition. I am extremely excited to take classes from her in the future. The organization of her courses are clear and concise, and truly allow a student to think and discuss more so than they would in a regular classroom setting.
she teaches well and is very understanding
I enjoyed how she used a variety of technology for teaching. It allowed me to grasp the concept better.
Very knowledgeable
Knows her subject matter completely, knows how to produce a interactive online class.
Her knowledge about the subject she is teaching, the experience, and ability to explain things through powerpoint lecture slides.
Prof Jaworowski is easily approachable and has a friendly attitude. She keeps the atmosphere acedemic and has a dialog for any question she is asked. I found her to be well-organized and adept at introducing topics, which are potentially dry and uninteresting, and capturing my attention by varying her presentations. She used different media and changed her approaches to keep lesson material moving along.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
I don't have any suggestions for changes, Pro. J is a great instuctor.
none
None.
Nothing comes to mind. I was more than satisfied with Prof J's course delivery.
Less powerpoint
Perhaps some extra credit work being made available.
Because she goes "all out" for us every session, I honestly can't think of anything more she could add. She already goes to great extent to provide a sense of the real-life experience of what she teaches, letting us participate in mock legislative hearings; bringing in others to give us a slice of life perspective; and actively engaging us in discussion. I would hope that she would not change any of these activities, but I'll bet she will come up with even more creative experiences for her students.
Allowing the Final exam to be open notes and class handouts because of the simple fact no one person can remember all the different sections of the law, ethics, government, etc. Not even graduates of law school are able to cite complete sections of the law. It is not only the importance of understanding what is taught in Law 101 but also knowing where to research and how to find the information, especially understanding the code of ethics and each branch of government. It is a concern with the final exam closing in fast having to know numerous sections of the law and a huge percentage of the final exam affects the final grade. It is a fearful thought because even having a solid "A" going into final it could be blown by a poor score on the final exam, the heart break of knowing what could possibly happen. I sincerely hope this fall 2010 final exam is open notes. The thought is even with open notes, if you don't study for final exam does not mean you will have enough time to look up all the information. If you don't study the hypo and understand how to break it down you will not be able to score max points. I've learned from two of my previous Law Professor's here at KCC, it's not being able to memorize the law but how the law is applied, understanding the law and knowing where to start the research, how to break it down and define your research.
None.

Don't grade as much on discussion questions. It's a discussion to open our minds; there's a lot of pressure for someone without the knowledge expected to answer questions on discussion board. Not knowing should not be graded harshly
None
I don't know Prof J or the online instruction courses at KCC well enough to suggest changes, but if I may? I really liked the VOKI images she used and I hope she continues to use VOKI. She comes through clearly and seems like a friend with an attitude, positive.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She always shows concerns for her students when she feels like they are having problems with the course. She always thinks of her students. When she presents information to us for the course, she always puts lots of thought and effort into it.
gives office hours and encourages questions
She responded immediatel to any inquiries. She gave us an opportunity to clarify questions by submitting index cards at the beginning of the term.
She was available to help whenever it was needed.
If we ever had concerns, or even if our face looked puzzled...she would take time out to help us.
She pays attention to each and every students' commentary in our discussions and provides feedback, correction to misconceptions, and further information and sources to pursue. During class, she seems to know each person's status, that is, where each student stands in his comprehension of the material and she assists with some one-on-one attention when we do in-class assignments.
She provided us with note cards and encouraged us to ask questions. The note card was a great way to voice our confusion without being pointed out. It was anonymous so that was appreciated. She also explains questions thoroughly and made it known that she was always available to answer any and all questions.
Professor J is approachable face to face or via email, she listens to a students concerns, is caring when your ill allowing the student to complete the assignment.
Ms. Jaworoski responded to many of the posts in the discussion boards, and gave specific information that answered questions posed by the students.
when laulima was down she would give us extra days for us to finsih our assignments
I think she cared about the students and enjoyed the subject matter enough to show concern.
n/a
She is always informing students of current events in the subject matter.
She promptly responded to all my emails, offered help whenever I needed it, and she was extremely patient
I consulted with her about a technology question early in the course. She led me through the lesson and took all the time I needed to understand her explanation. I mentioned I was adrift in another course and she not only offered to lead me to the instructor's office, but planned to introduce me to him. Unfortunately, his office was locked and I didn't get to visit with him. Prof J welcomed me back and assured me that I was going to be fine and wished me well. I feel I could get help and advice from her anytime I asked.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Of course I would recommend her, I actually aready have. She is a great instructor, very organized.
yes, but be prepared to study hard.
Yes. See #13.
Yes, defniitely.
Yes, because of the amount of valuable information that you gain.
I would certainly recommend Prof. J's course as the first one to take in the Paralegal program. It will build a student's enthusiasm for what lies ahead in the program and will also assist by providing a basic understanding of the other courses in the program.
Yes! She makes learning about law fun and informative =)
I would recommend Professor J to fellow students and have a positive response. I was worried/concerned to take her course because of what I had heard from fellow students and their experience with her. But because of a positive influence on me and the fact I am required to take Law 101 despite my initial fear, has turned out to be a positive learning experience.
I would recommend Ms. Jaworoski's class to any student. Her method of teaching makes everything relevant to issues that arise today, and her presentations are easy to understand but still thought provoking.
of course. she's a fantastic teacher and i learn a lot from her power point presentations.
ABSOLUTELY!
sure, very knowledgeable
Yes, Very caring person who is passionate about her subject.
Yes, her classes are challenging and quizzes are hard, but I feel like I learned alot and the materials were interesting even though they were a but challenging to understand
Absolutely, she is very interesting to listen to and has something to say about any topic I have brought up with her. In fact, I feel sadly lacking in my communication skills when compared with her's. I am new to law and paralegal courses and Prof J has a command of the subject of law that moves along at a swift pace. One must pay close attention or you soon have to beg to be taken back to the beginning of the conversation to start over. However, she is patient with beginners and I feel that she doesn't really mind that she has to tolerate my ignorance of the subject. I think helping people is why she got into teaching in the first place.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
i really enjoy her class.
I have never seen anyone work as hard as Prof J in presenting her course materials--both online and in person. I was totally impressed with her organization of the instructional materials, and she provided a wide variety of delivery methods. I liked her use of Laulima, with the discussion board, resources of powerpoints and additional references, videos, twitter feeds, etc. She was completely engaging as a classroom instructor and showed genuine interest in her students' success.
yes
thanks for the pizza, brownies, coffee, and cookies!! :)
As well as being a great teacher, she makes her class sessions as sociable as she is in personality. Missing a class session would be like missing a theme party.
She is a great teacher.
great teacher.
Excellent teacher. First year as a paralegal student with exposure to the field of law of any kind and she allowed me to not only understand the legal profession better, but also enjoy it.
Nothing
Great teacher, very optimistic, patient, and very very very smart
If I get to continue to attend KCC, I plan to take Prof J's other course in Patent and Copywrite Law.
18. Other comments:
Prof J made the law/paralegel profession come alive for me!
none
If I could offer a higher evaluation I would. I just don't know how!
The last assignment for the course is a "group" assignment, being in the paralegal program one of the important work ethics is "team work". I firmly believe in team work but I think it is also equally important to allow a student to work solo because of many circumstances it is the individual who is accountable for his/her own work product. I sincerely appreciate the fact that Professor J allowed me to work on the last assignment solo and disband from my group I originally put together because of lack of commitment and work ethics from my former teammates.
online course is a winner. almost everything is clear cut on what is required to complete assignments. any questions? email was pretty effective. Lots of information - i was very glad to be able to view and review. That is a really nice part that is different from a classroom setting - you can access the power points and videos - over and over - anytime!!! More online classes plz!!!
None
I am new to online instruction in the way KCC uses it, but all my instructors were patient and willing to re-explain their lesson ofjectives until the message sank in. I am willing to keep up the Internet use, and I want to become familiar with KCC's use of it. I am not as comfortable with technology as some students who have grown up using computers in all aspects of their lives are so I plan to keep making the effort to utilize the computer in an educational setting and give as good as I get.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Her passion and knowledge for the law. Prof. J is enthusiastic about teaching and making sure her students understand the material and learn practical working skills for the real world.
Very knowledgeable, and has lots of community ties so that we can have great guest speakers.
Explains discussions clearly, gives good examples:), answers question clearly
Gave me options how to think about an issue, then forced to look at the particular issue; if that is the issue the question asked; teased the answer out of me which was there simply because she talked me through process, the legal process and what is behind it, such as the difference between a prosecutorial versus defense way of thinking.
Very good teacher. Makes it fun to learn. She is very easy to talk to and I do not feel afraid to ask questions or make comments. Discussions in class are interactive and she gets along with students well. I enjoyed having her as a teacher.
2,500 characters does not offer enough space to list all of her major strengths as a teacher, so I'll keep it simple. She is just darn good at what she does! She is so organized that many instructors pale in comparison. Her lectures are informative and fun, and everything is explained in detail with a clear understanding of what she feels is important for you to take away from her class. She prepares students well for exams and answers questions by email in a timely manner.
she is extremely knowledgeable on the subject and has a lot of professional experience to draw upon, really enjoyed the guest lecturers
knowledge in the subject area and technology, wide and deep network with professionals, very personable, easy to talk to and ask questions, willingness to share all and everything she has as a teacher with her students.
The instructor was very knowledgeable about the material and she was very structured in her class. Professor J made all her assignments clear.
She is well organized and made difficult topics easy to understand.
Professor J is always encouraging us to participate actively in her class. She continually interacts with the class and always demonstrates her knowledge of the course material.
Knowledgable, enthusiastic, up-do-date on laulima sites. Love how she incorporates different technologies into her teaching
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
none
Nothing...but sometimes she talk so fast
Not one thing, please!
Maybe she can slow down when she speaks... however, I do appreciate the volume of what she teaches in class, so I can't complain.
None
No suggest needed.
None.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She sends emails asking about our attendance...she let's us submit anonymous questions...very helpful.
Emailing them..answer emails quickly..giving handouts from the day you missed class
Answered emails, created links
Laulima site was very helpful and always updated with information. She also emailed often.
Professor J shows concern for students by working diligently to prepare them for their field of study. She takes time to recognize those students who are taking her class but may not be getting their degree as a paralegal and shares how the inforamation provided in class applies to their field or basic interests, as well. She's easy to reach outside of class and gives GREAT follow up information to areas of study that proved challenging in the classroom.
made herself available to us and was very open to answering any questions we might have, very understanding
She started calling all students by the first name on the second class! She has very close attention to each one of us. She is aware of every student's job, sometimes life, and academic situations, where we are in the program, and so on... She brought microphones in class, changed the classroom from the freezing one to the better one with the computers. She always posted information and video to support what we learned in class. I really really appreciated it.
Made assignment deadlines later. For example, encouraged students to vote so pushed back due date one day. Also, allowed students time to spend with the family so pushed back due date two days to allow for time spent on thanksgiving.
She is always engaging us in conversation and tries to assist us in any ways she can. If anyone does not understand or needs clarification, she always takes the time to help him or her.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Definitely! Best law teacher I've had so far...and I am signing up for another of her classes next semester. She is very impressive.
Yes...shes a good professor
Yes, recommend, if you want to understand how to think logically about what really we are looking at, such as defendant's rights, procedure in criminal law, so on
Yes, she is great to learn from and makes students want to learn.
Absolutely! Because everyone deserves the kind of education she provides.
yes she is very energetic and her class is straight forward and interesting, never a dull moment
ANYBODY! I would like to take as many as classes from her. I absolutely love her for all the reasons above.
A big yes! Very knowledgeable and personable to the students.
Yes. She is very fair, made the difficult topics easy to understand and will answer any questions you have on a timely basis.
Yes, because she is an able teacher who knows her material. She explains things very well and is easy to understand, though her enthusiasm sometimes propels her to speak quickly.
YES
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
You need more teachers like her.
Nice professor..funny..:)
Got a pretty good sense of the concise nature of a lawyer; closer to Vulcan
Teach more classes, if possible!
Excellent teacher!
Great teacher. Made me understand criminal law well
18. Other comments:
Keep it up behind the face of real live lawyer is a warm mind
I thought the textbook was very helpful. However, the book was extremely heavy and I personally had a hard time carrying it everywhere when I wanted to do reading assignment outside home. At the end of the day, I had sore shoulders and the big decision of starting a day was usually whether I carry the book the day with me or not. ;) I scanned or copied pages so that I won't have to carry entire book all the time, but it was the most (and the only) problem I had in this class. The content of the book was great though. I hope this publisher will provide e- copy or Kindle or something...

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Well organized, quick responses when asked for assistance, well explained/organized lectures, gave in-depth explanations on the various sections of legal writing, etc.
Understands application of legal writting and instructs students new to the field. building blocks are solid. Provided opportunity for students to learn via "iluminate" took the time to integrate it into the time line.
Enthusiastic Good presentation style Organized Easy to understand Embraces new technology as teaching tools
very knowledgeable.
Damn, she really knows her stuff. She also encourages us to think about the concepts. I have given some pretty lame answers when I didn't understand but felt it was OK and part of the learning process in this difficult subject.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes necessary; absolutely enjoyed Professor Jaworowski's lecture style, and learned more than in any other similar classes of legal writing.
more examples and practices for writing the memos would be helpful, especially if never written one before.
I would have liked all of the weeks to be eluminate seesions, but understand why that was not so.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She was always willing to assist via email or in person, if necessary; timely answered all my burning questions; explained in detail challenging assignments, etc.
Direct inquiries and open ended questions during class discussions.
offers office hours and encourages questions.
She was always available for questions and concerns we might have.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Of course I would recommend any student to learn under Prof. J's excellent supervision. She has this talent to do give far more in-depth explanations, which I needed for legal writing. Because of her, I better understand the gist of writing far more than before. I'm truly happy about my progress all thanks to Prof. J.
Yes, she is thorought and understands the materials. Excellent instructor for legal writing.
Yes. The two classes of hers that I've taken have been education, and also more interesting than they would seem by looking at the syllabus. Her classes are well organized, and it's easy to get the points that she's trying to teach.
yes, but be prepared to work and study hard!
I always do ! She is a real asset to the program.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Best wishes, much success, and happiness, and thank you for another progressive, fruitful semester.
Thank you for being at KCC.
great professor.

The video feedback on the case briefs was excellent. I know it took you a great deal of time to do, but I think we all benefited from it.
