13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
hands on stuff, field trips, planting native plants, learning lots of cool stuff.
I enjoyed my instructor very much. He is very informative and his way of teaching is excellent. He cares about his students and goes out of his way to help.
I liked learning about the different plants and the fact that I can now actually identify different plants in the wild.
fieldtrips
Getting outside in nature helped me to understand the course material on a hands on level
Learned the purpose of how and why the plants grow where they do
I loved the hands-on, outdoors nature of this course! I felt totally immersed in the subject matter during field trips.
All the information that Professor Cole had prepared through power point, activities, projects, and reading materials most of all truly to say this is one class that I enjoyed reading because I hated reading but the materials that was shared brought an interest of reading to me. So to say I really like everything about this class.
The assignments, activities, group projects, and labs were all very fun and interesting. David was very effective in helping us to understand the concepts in class.
subject matter related well with the lab excursions.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
more hands on stuff.
None
This is an excellent course, No suggestions, I am fully satisfied with this class.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
everything.
I enjoyed all the outdoor activities and his method of teaching is excellent.
I loved the field trips! It was great being outdoors and finding these beautiful places. I especially loved when David would take us inside of a forest to these beautiful majestic places. It really helped me learn getting to actually go and see these plants in their environments and seeing why they look the way they do.
Love the lab got out and learn the nature of the plants and the environment and how what and why the plant species grow in certain areas
Thank you, Professor Cole as a native Hawaiian of the Islands truly to say I have learned a lot about native plants in measurements and their growth within different climate changes and areas which surrounded me my entire life and not knowing anything about anything. I will put the word out to other students that your class have a lot to offer as a suggestion. Again Mahalo.
field trips, meeting the plants
these labs were very enjoyable. Visited places that I have not been to. really hands on which helped me understand the material better.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
The only thing that I would suggest is just for the professor to make sure we have the okay to go to certain places and just give organizations the heads up that there will be a class. Like how on Mauna Kea usually you can just go up with no problem except that they closed it off because of the wind when we were there.
15. Other comments:
Great Class!
David is an incredible instructor that doesn't just teach us nonsense. He doesn't teach by telling us facts and testing us on it. He teaches us by actually letting us observe on our own and the way he teaches helps us memorize the different plants.
Enjoyed your teaching I've learned a lot keep up the good work. Mahalo

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the videos that we had to watch.
The videos were very helpful in learning.
The experiments were fun for everyone and most of the videos were interesting
I enjoyed the activities David Cole made our assignments interesting it was never boring.
The videos were GREAT! They were informational and intresting. The videos were very convenient. Writing assignments were good as well. Allowed me to stay involved and motivated.
I feel that the reading material and lecture videos were highly effective in helping me grasp the information that I needed from this class.
Videos and subjects were very helpful. Learn something new each class. paper work and assignments was fair. I would recommend Mr.Cole to anyone who needs to take ethnobotony and labs .
it was easy to learn new things,, and the assignments was very good! AWESOME!!
I really loved the course content. Dave Cole is really amazing at bringing a certain quality of learning into the classroom. He had us actively engaged in the scientific, as well as, cultural and social aspects of the plants cultures use.
Mr. Cole is hilarious. Course activities spanned from fish stunning to beer making. They were great experiments that helped us learn the relationships between plants and humans.
the activities and assignments were totally fun and easy to understand- I absolutely LOVED this class
Mr. Cole in my opinion did an outstanding job, he demonstrated great knowledge of material and subject. Great course and instructor, enjoyed the class and would recommend it to other students.
This was a great course. The web site David Cole set up for the was excellent. I know this was the first time he had taught this class but he did an exceptional job. It was very interesting and I learned a lot. Some of the assignments looked forward to the least ended up being the ones I enjoyed the most and learned the most from.
I loved the field trips and working on campus with the Hawaiian Studies group. Making tapa cloth was my favorite activity.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
none
NO
N/A
no improvement,,, keep the vibe going!!
I would improve this course by, bringing in more guess speakers/presenters as that was my favorite part of the course. It definitely had the students, interested, involved and made us feel we were important.
I think Mr. Cole is on his way to being a very great teacher. As I understand it, this is his first semester of teaching. In the beginning he was a little nervous and soft spoken, but as the semester progressed he evolved into a better leader over his class. He always graded and handed back our homework within a week or so. He wanted the best for his students and often offered extra credit for those who wanted it. He used a variety of teaching techniques, such as experiments, movies and power points.
n/a
Assign fewer or no videos to watch outside of class. It was more difficult for me to learn the material through a small screen image as opposed to a classroom setting. Not everyone has easy access to the internet too.
15. Other comments:
I liked that Mr. Cole participated with us and helped us with our experiments. He was just as involved with the class and the students were. Being that this was MR. coles first semester teaching, i thought he did a great job.
All in all AWSOME course. This class was my best class this semester. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. Keep up the great work!

Your Awesome Mr.Cole
this is an excellent class,, im recomending it to everyone!!
Be bold, Mr. Cole!

David Cole did a great job of teaching this class- he did a excellent job of self analysis. There were a few occasions when he would catch something that was bit confusing himself- and clarify. He was always the first to say I need to be clearer on this next time and make fair assessments if it had effected anyone's grade.
This was one of my favorite classes, and I look forward to our lab every Thursday. I have reccomended this class to other people.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I looked forward to this lab every week. Making tapa cloth, learning how to make the leis, and our field trip walks were my favorite activities.
Fantastic, hands-on class! I would highly recommend that other students take a class from David Cole! I learned so much and really enjoyed that he was so easy to talk to.
The course was exciting I got to see places in Hilo that I would not imagine was here. Thank Dave
I liked that the labs where not all in the classroom and we where able to go outside and learn.
I loved the outtings we had. Going out to diffent places to get the hands on experience with the plants. They were all very informational and fun.
The lab really added more hands on learning to the course material. I would recommend that anyone taking the class take the lab also.
Lab portion of the course is top notch, as a class we were able to do some cool and interesting things. Mr. Cole is a great instructor who demonstrates vast knowledge of the subject taught. Would recomend course to other students.
The best part of this course was when we were out in the field. The types of trips we were taking and the guest speakers/presenters were strongly related to our place in the community. The implication was that we as HCC students are responsible for perpetuating the culture of Hawaii Island. I felt truly blessed to have gained the knowledge, and understand the purpose behind living here and appreciating the unique envioronment we live in.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I think it was great to get involved with the Hawaiian studies group doing the gardening on campus. It would be good to meet with them once at the beginning of a term to help start a project, and once or twice later to reconnect and follow up.

The only thing I would suggest to improve this course is to allow it to blossom and flourish over time. It is important to get the feel for how things work best, and that can only be achieved through trial and error.

13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
Learned about our native plants and environments when i didn't know much before this course.
The field trip. The plants I saw on my eyes at each different area helped a lot to learn about native plants.
I really enjoyed the lab fieldtrips.
I thought that he presented material that could be hard to grasp in a way that was easy to learn and created an interest in the subject for students. Everything was easy to access on the class website and was a great way to keep up with work and your progress in the class.
I enjoyed learning about plants and going on field trips.
Loved all of the assignments and activities!!
this course was more fun than i expected! the field trips were very informative and kept things interesting.

Thanks for helping me through this class and i think you you did an excellent job teaching.
Thanx Mr. Cole
Definitely not what I was expecting but it was a great surprise! I can honestly say that I've learned a lot in this class. The best thing would be that I WILL be using this new found knowledge in my day to day life and passing it on to the next generation.
David did a great job and was very helpful! he is very interested in botany which made the class even better but he also was very helpful with tricks t learning boring stuff. i like the quizes and lab note book assignments.
good job david
