13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
I like the way that Pat lectures and presents the material. He speaks very well and explains the concepts in a way that I can easily understand. The powerpoint slides and his drawings on the dry erase board help me understand the material better. I'm a visual learner and I like that Pat's power points are available on laulima for us to review.
He definitely knew what he was teaching, you could tell he was passionate about oceanography.
He's knowledgeable and passionate about his field of study. He's young and easy to relate to.
Knows the subject area very well, allowing to teach his students a great deal of Oceanography.
He always got through all info:)
his lesson plans were always organized and he always knew his lectures we always knew what to expect on a typical day of class.
Professor Drupp clearly knows the subject matter and puts a lot of effort into making the information easy to understand.
His knowledge of the course
Knows what hes talking about.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None.
Powerpoints are a little dry.
Perhaps the power points were a bit elongated and over bearing. More thorough review, and more specific points to study.
Change focus away from ppt sometimes..
none it think its a tough subject to teach because most student are only taking it to fulfill a requirement and dont always have a passion to learn the material. or if their like me has a hard time understanding the material because its not something im interested in.
I'm not sure if he is aware of this, but he is kind of like the Mr. Mackie character from south park in that he uses the phrase "mmmkay" quite often. I wanted to bring a bottle of hooch to class and make a drinking game out of it. The last statement was intended as brevity and should not reflect negatively on Professor Drupp. Also, don't give exams so soon after Spring break, I personally bombed that particular exam due to being distracted over the break.
Dosent need any
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Pat is very good about responding via e-mail. And questions or concerns were resolved very promptly and thoroughly.
Involved in the students' success and easily accessible outside of class
He was ready to discuss issues after class.
he showed his concern for his students by being available when ever they need it thru email or in person. outside of class he would look up any question student would have during class that he couldnt answer weather it was based on the lecture or something they read about and report back the next class. he also make it possible to make up quizzes if you emailed him like if you were sick or something. he made it okay to miss class if you were sick and he did his best to help you catch up.
He would answer student's questions and try to explain information in several different ways until the class understood the concept.
He made the connection between the course work and the students.
Would answer questions if people had any.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?

i would recommend patrick drupp to other students because he has a clear understanding of what hes teaching and he does his best to help his students understand the material also he'll go above and beyond to answer questions student may have by doing additional research and reporting back.
Yes, I would recommend Professor Drupp to any and all students. I feels this way because he tries different ways to relay information and does so in a non condescending way.
Yes, very informative.
Yes cause hes a good teacher
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
The fact that he's a younger teacher is actually an advantage as he can relate examples better than some older tenured staff...
awesome professor!
good teacher would take a class from him again
Professor Drupp has the potential to be a great science teacher.
18. Other comments:
I initially registered for this course for a science credit and had absolutely no interest in the subject. However thanks to Pat, I now understand the importance of the ocean and I can appreciate the subject a lot more.
