8. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
more student interaction
Mr Bryan is very good professor he made his class very fun and interesting I learn a lot from this class,.
More hands on activities, not just running through power-points.
Bryan is one of the best teacher that I have met. He is very well organized person, and he masters all the lesson that he teaches. I like that he always do the review the lecture of the day before, also he provides the exam review sheet one week before the exam. I think he needs to be more punctual, because sometimes he often comes late to the class.
He could help the students be more interactive with note taking and source reviewing, otherwise the students will lose focus
Asking questions didn't produce many answers and sometimes slowed down the class. It might also help to explain concepts from the presentation through examples and relating it to what the topic is covering.
I believe he can make the class more lively with the assistance of some in classroom activities.
creating more activists in class. watch more video's.
Don't go through slides so fast!!!!!
Stop spending so much time reviewing the last lecture. You literally waste 30 minutes of class going over what you spent an hour in class on yesterday. You even use the same exact slides. Also, you go over things over and over and over again. I realize that it's a teaching strategy, but it's a bit much to talk about it on 10 slides, have us discuss it as a class, talk about it on 10 more slides, have us do an in-class assignment, then talk about it some more.

10. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Reading and his lecture is very usefu also the video that relevant to the subject is also useful.
General knowledge about international geography.
With the review sheet that Bryan provided, it helps me understand many key concepts that learned in the class.
The knowledge of what is actually going on in today's world economically and politically.
I found the out of class study sessions that Bryan held, to be a valuable part of the course, since it was a summer school course where a lot of material was condensed into a short time period.
The study guide helped in preparing for exams and was good as well as study sessions.
I found the information learned was the most helpful.
nothing
It's interesting to learn about globalization and its relation to other aspects of the world.

19. Other comments:
maybe find ways to encourage more student participation. no one wanted to talk much
Bryan is a great teacher that I have met. He tries his best to help students understand lessons that he teaches. I only suggest him to be more punctual and makes a strict rule not to bring electronic device to the classroom.
Bushley is cool, but the class has a lot of info to take in the summer but its not an overload. Good class.
No further comments.
Thank you for finally starting to end class at the proper time.
