9. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
After each lesson/topic, the professor asks questions to check the students' comprehension and when there are disagreements the professor encourages each student to defend his/her answer. The examples were also very interesting and they were easy to relate to considering that everyone in the class comes from a different country.
THe overall coverage of the course is quite good and the most interesting part for me was knowing trait approach and the skill approaches of ledership. i could get more knowledge from the instructor's example and the group discussions on this.
The textbook is very helpful and his video clips help me understand better about the practical leadership in American society and other countries.

Great job!
Fun class.
The youtube clips were very helpful and effective in making your point. It also kept me stimulated throughout the class period. I enjoyed taking your class.
One of the best professors I've ever had. Very enthusiastic and I learned a lot in his class.
Thank you for your lecture. This time, I also enjoy your talking, slides, and what you taught us too!!
none
No comments that I would like to make. Other than the fact is, I wish he taught other courses because he is a fun and funny teacher that does his best to teach people the subject, but tries to make it enjoyable or fun.
Unlike other professors who simply teach off the PowerPoint slides, Clemmens taeches through the use of stories of companies, examples, videos, pictures, etc. I believe it is his intention to make the information really stick with the students and he does that by trying to make relevant and interesting. His exams were straightforward, no surprises, and well organized. Overall, I think he is teaching the course with a clear objective and is carrying it out very well. The students come to class and pay attention because it's not boring and he presents the material in a way that will make sense easily. Students also like fairness and his approach to grading is very fair.
This professor is fun and I mean that in a good way. Many professor's lose their students throughout lecture but Clemmens is light-hearted, presents fresh material and calls and challenges people who are more quiet. Great instructor.
One of the better professors out there. Lectures are not that bad and there's good humor in the classroom. Thankful that there are extra credit opportunities, unlike other professors.
Professor Clemmens class is one of the classes i enjoyed going to because he was enthusiastic, interesting, and funny. He related fun and interesting examples that related to the course material and so i was able to understand class material better.
Clemmens is a great and funny teacher...I like his real life examples and experiences. Highly recommended
he's the best professor i ever had at this college
I enjoyed the professors style of teaching. One of the few classes I have taken that I looked forward to coming to class.
Christopher Clemmens is great instructor because I like to come to his class, and I've learned a lot with the material he prepared for his lecture. I can now use the things I learned from him to apply it for my future use.
Professor Clemmens is a very entertaining instructor who is knowledgeable and passionate about the subject matter which makes class very interesting. I would highly recommend taking his class.
Enjoyed having him as a teacher
Professor Clemmens is a engaged professor who has passion about his subject material. His lectures are interesting and thought provoking.
Thumbs up for Clemmens! Best instructor at U.H.
