24. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
This is an online course and could use more instructor interaction with students. Confusion regarding weekly assignments are not unusual and assignments are not always graded in a timely manner. More feedback is necessary for students to determine whether they are learning the material or need improvement.
It would be nice to receive more constructive feedback on my assignments. I want to know exactly why I received the grade that I did. It's hard to say anything about his teaching since it was an online course but his assignments did reflect the required reading.
Allow for perpetual grade checks and progress of the course.
Making himself more available out of class or online. Having the information/resources out at the beginning of the semester Answering his emails with more depth.
Nothing comes to mind at this time.
This was a great course.
25. Comment on the instructor's professional attitude and behavior.
The instructor clearly enjoys teaching the course but could make more effort to connect with students, give more direction, etc.
Good but I only had contact with him through email and through Laulima since this was an online course.
Very enthusiastic, fun to learn from his style.
Very enthusiastic and receptive in person.
Keeps students informed of changes. Is approachable and seems genuinely interested in students.
Very professional and interested in the sucess of students
The instructor should the coerce schedule along with the syllabus, he always changed scheduled. I was very confused about that.
Instructor's attitude and behavior is very professional. He knows his subject matter.
26. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Good course, educated professor, but could use better communication skills.
It's a great course. I like the way that the course is organized. I would like to have my assignments graded in a more timely manner.
Good course.
I thought the class was very informative. Schein's book is very hard to read. It is a good book but takes a few read overs to get where he is going. Many of the topics I could see happening in real life or hypothetically at my work place.
Another enjoyable class. It expands upon the leadership skills that I learned in the military. It also identified opportunities for improvement that I was unaware of.
I would recomend this course
great semester, great class!
Great course! I would recommend this course to any future managers or business professionals.
