Not to make it online
When i signed up for class, it did not say that it was online. If i could have, i would have avoided this class like the plague. I don't like online, i don't function well on a computer, separate from living breathing students and teachers. I didn't get as much from the class as i could have. I did like the modules and material that was posted on laulima. Discussions were also interesting to be a part of. The fact that the group project is worth so much of our grade is nerve wracking. I really think that assignments should be more evenly distributed so you don't stress us (the students out) at the end of the semester. Now I'm going to worry until December 14 whether I'm going to pass or fail this course. I've already had a bad experience with an online class. I don't want to have two bad experiences.
This class was kind of challenging because the reading sheets and material was way too much to digest at one time. The reading sheets took so long to complete and the modules were very time consuming. I took longer to complete this class work than any other class. Way too much time to complete the assignments. Taking the class in person would have been a better choice for me because there is no way she could have crammed all that material into the allotted time. I probably would have got way more out of the class in person.
very passionate about what she is teaching.
I feel like the reading sheets were too long, they felt like busy work, but other than that the course was great!
I'm not sure if the half-bred course (online & classroom) really worked for me. I was more prone to procrastination. I know it is a personal issue but maybe if each week, our reading sheets and modules were due, then it would have been better (in opinion). I felt like I crammed a lot of information all at once (due 4 weeks of work in one day) that it was difficult for me to remember what era something happened. Loved the instructor. VERY ENERGETIC. Made the subject more easier to bear. Made me appreciate the learning and importance of history. Overall, I felt like the class and teacher was good, its just that the course structure is hard to work with. I like online & going to class several times a semester but maybe more strict due dates would have helped me enjoy the material better.
She is an excellent teacher. She is extremely upbeat and energetic which I believe is needed when learning history. She is extremely knowledgable on the subject matter. I look forward to taking another class with her, hopefully in-class and not as an online course.
- The readings were overwhelming - I wish there was an option for another class that was not done through the internet - Awesome teacher who is always prepared and enthusiastic
I really enjoyed Rebecca's class, she is an awesome teacher and this course was the best because we only had to meet once a month. I do enjoy online classes and this was the best.
Some of the students got caught for cheating on their reading sheets. What disappointed me was that there were others who cheated and did not get caught and did not speak up, but they got the credit because they re-worded their answers.
Rebecca is upbeat and funny! One could not get bored in this class. She makes you feel like a team and she's always encouraging in the best way she can. I learned a lot in this class.
Prof. Stotzer is by far the best professor I have ever had. The coursework is so tailored and so interesting! She really takes the time and puts in the effort to teach and excite us students! Quality education at its finest :)
The subject was interesting, very stimulating, fabulous instructor. But way to much reading and questions to answer. Felt very over loaded, way to much to learn in such a short time. Could not give equal time to other classes. Glad we only had to go to class about every 3 weeks. But way way to much info. Keep laulima work or keep Text and Q&A but not both. Eliminate one or the other.

I've never been very excited about policies and political issues, but Becky really gave me the understanding of how these issues affect social work and those we serve. It was a very difficult subject matter for me but she made it very fun and exciting!
You will have until Thursday, December 8, 2011 to view and complete your survey(s). We're slammed with writing, slammed with studying, and you only give us until Dec 8th to complete this survey? That's messed up.
Becky is animated and lively.
Loved this class and the fact that we as a cohort was able to design our own tests. ALOT of information and sooo much reading, took my printer ink right out;) I thought the other assignments fair adn the modules we did cool. Lectures very interesting and sooo learned alot of information i never knew ever. The questions helpful for a guide and i appreciate that alot but i wish the readings could be toned down and lectures given a little slower. Loved this class, Becky clearly knows what she is talking about and very knowledgable, no doubt. She is also very funny!
Class was very informative, but the constant chatter on chat was found to be very distracting.
Your high energy was very helpful to keep me engaged as it can be difficult to maintain engagement when doing classes online. It was also great to be able to have input in the type of exams that we wanted!
Blackboard collaborate had some connectivity issues at times which disrupted the lecture flow. At times miss and audio function or being able to log in was a challenge for some students and I think discouraged actually using that aspect of the virtual classroom to communicate. Students seemed much more comfortable with typing in the chat than attempting to talk using the mic. I currently work as a case manager and barring the actual history of the inception of social work and its origin founders, much of the course material was familiar to me re current policies and programs, etc. I did find other aspects of the course material interesting and I enjoyed Becky's lecture style; very engaging and enthusiastic, able to explain complex concepts in a way that makes sense and is easy to comprehend. I'm looking forward to the next class with her as the professor.
Becky is a joy to be around. I look forward to her classes because she is so motivated and enthusiastic about what she teaches. Her head is such a wealth of knowledge she explodes in the classroom. She wants us all to know what she knows; she does her best to give us everything and not leave out a thing. FANTASTIC, I want to marry her ï??
There was a lot of reading material.
Becky is extremely enthusiastic and displays passion for the subject. I heard most students expressing they were unable to complete the readings. At times I felt lost because of my inability to complete the readings on time. I look forward to future classes with Becky to see with experience in grad school I can adapt to her teaching style.

15. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I love Becky, she is awesome! She makes the boring Research a bit interesting and understandable.
great-She is very enthusiastic about the course material and presents all the material is a very easily understood manner.
THis instructor was wonderful. She made research fun and exciting. It helped me how she used realistic Social work examples of agencies to better understand the research. She was high energy and always gave constructive feedback to help us learn more. She was encouranging and alwys offered to help us. She took the time to make sure we understood everything. Because of this instructor, i am interested in research and am looking forward to taking more classes. She did a womderful job
Instructor is very knowledgeable. She is available when in need of assistance. She makes it very easy to understand the material. She ROCKS!!!
excellent!! Becky is a great teacher with a contagious positive personality. She presents information in an interesting way that makes learning fun and easy. She is very knowledgable and patient. I would definitly recommend her to friends.
Rebecca is very knowledgable about research and statistics. She presented class topics in a very interesting and fun manner. She was excited about what we were learning in class and it made it easier to learn. She is very organized and that is much appreciated. Overall, she is an excellent instructor.
Rebecca was enthusiastic and wonderful at explaining the course content. Her upbeat attitude made class very enjoyable, even if the content was a bit dry :) She was fantastic and I would recommend her course to other students!
Becky is an awesome professor. She is very helpful and supportive. she makes assignments very clear. Although this course was challenging she made it very easy to stay on track. She makes me feel like I can always ask questions and she always respond to all questions I have on a very timely manner. She is a great teacher and I would reccommend any of her classes to other students.
This class would have been easier for me if the whole picture was presented in the beginning and then how the pieces fit into the whole.
This instructor I feel is the foundation for this DE program overall. She is always available to consult and returns e-mails and phone calls in a timely manner.
This instructor is very knowledgeable and creates a lively and interesting classroom environment. She is willing to take extra time to explain things and offers very helpful feedback on our assignments.
This class was a real challenge but the professor really explained things thoroughly and was patient with the class. I felt like i got ALOT of positive out of the class.
Professor Stotzer has both the intelligence and the communication skills to excel in her ability to make even difficult material manageable.
AWESOME.......other instructors should take notes because Becky is clear cut, straight to the point and is very precise in what she wants. She is always there to answer any questions and if we disagree, she negotiates where everyone is satisfied.
Always available to assist students. Becky makes students feel very supported and comfortable in class. I wish Becky could teach all of our classes!
just an "on it" professional and we are blessed to have her instruct us!
For a topic that is hard to follow, she makes it very easy to follow without being condescending. Great work.
excellent. She is a great teacher with lots of enthusiasm. She makes learning interesting and knows how to help ease the stress in class when discussing sensitive topics.
becky is a freakin awesome instructor!!!!!!! i wish i had her for every single one of my courses. she makes class interesting, she knows what the hell she's talking about, and can always answer our questions. she's very helpful and can explain complicated things in a way that i can understand. i must admit that she is much better via HITS - but she is still awesome in elluminate (if it weren't for elluminate kicking us off)!!!!!!!
Becky is a super GIFTED instructor. She always treats the students with respect, constantly challenges us, and is ALWAYS available for support. She is obviously extremely intelligent, and I really appreciate her efforts to pass on her knowledge to us!
Ms. Stotzer is very good at her role as a teacher and professor because she empowers the student to learn and with added support. She is especially funny at times and makes the atmosphere very attractable and pleasant. I learn easier when I have the understanding that the teacher is happy to teach and not there for just the pay check. I will always look forward in learning from this teacher.
More Professors like her With a lot of Compassion....
Becky is able to take difficult, technical jargon and synethesize down for us in such a way that we are able to understand. Realistic expectations.
Becky rocks!! I learned so much from this class and am prepared to move forward.
She is awesome. She was helpful whenever my group had questions about our paper and whenever I had questions about course material I did not understand.
Extremely enthusiastic about teaching this subject. It was obvious she knows the material well and applies it regularly.
Professor Stotzer is very helpful

I liked this course a lot althought i thought at first i wouldn't. it will be extremely relevent in my social work experience and hope to take more reasearch evaluation classess in the future. This instructor helped me understand the material so i will be ready for the next step or to do my own research at whatever agency I work at next. This instuctor is perfect for this class
excellent!!! The material presented in this course was a compliment to the previous social work reserach courses. I think all socail work students should take this course as it helped me to understand what makes a research study strong and weak. It also helped me recognize the different types of statistical tests available for evaluations and reserach studies that i may conduct in the future.
I had leared a lot from this class. Becky made it very easy to stay on track. She also made it easy to understand the information. When assignments were returned she always respond and give suggestion to make your assignment better. This class was challenging yet very informative
I really enjoyed the Elluminate experience once I got used to it. It was so much easier to go home then to rush to class. It was much less distracting as our other classroom has a lot of discussion and it is hard to hear.
It has helped me to better appriciate statistics as well as understand the reason and use for this tool in the real world regarding funding for programs etc.
She is a real asset to DE MSW.
EXCELLENT....Now I can look forward to my research class next year....I am so excited. I want to learn more about the process and statistics portion of the research because it is so interesting........I can't believe what I have learned in this class......this has opened so many doors for me. My perspectives now in life has opened for more opportunities in life.
Even though this was a challenging course, Becky presented the material in a way that we could learn and understand the material.
Good class, not my favorite subject, instructor made it bearable.
I love elluminate. It was easiest for me to communicate in this format and it was easier to understand. Instructor does an excellent job managing / multi-tasking while helping us learn at the same time.
a great experience as the instructor has helped me throughout the semester and made my learning experience a success. I have learned a lot from the course and look forward to another opportuity with this instructor.
it is a pretty interesting course. It helped me get past my fears of research and has pointed me in a new direction of goals and possibilities.
I don't like eluminate but the instructor did her best to present and teach us.
the course would have been really dry and boring, but becky made it interesting and relevant. i am not the biggest fan of research so with any other instructor this class would have been beyond me or irrelevant. becky made it so that i knew how research fit in to the big picture and how i can use it to better my studies.
Difficult topic, however since Becky is such a gifted instructor, the materials are presented in an "easy to use" style. The homework assignments really allowed me to practice and double check my understanding of some tough concepts. The HWK assignments also forced me to actually read the article and tested my understanding of the readings. Writing the HUGE paper in chunks, all the while getting feedback and being allowed to make revisions also helped me learn much more effectively.
Best research that I have taken yet in BA and MA program. She has made it relevant to SW.
Excellent!! Well designed.
That it is a challenging course, but we will need this material later in our master's program. It challenged me to think critically about journal articles I read and how to conduct a program evaluation. Many resources go in to each process.
Wonderful course! Learned alot about evaluation.
