19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
more clases in less lecture time
nothing
Sometimes I think its a little bit to repeating and personal but you do learn about yourself and it can be good and bad but it teaches you a lot, so give or take that would be the only thing that I would change.
I would do nothing to improve this course. Aunty did a beautiful job.
If I were to teach this course I wouldnt do nothing to change what I learned or how I learned it.The instructor made assignments fun and enjoyable.
The only thing that I would have like to have seen was the breakdown of the scoring process. On the syllubus, the grade tiers was provided, but I did not know that score was broken down. How much point value was attached to each task we needed to complete.

I loved learning new skills through the building bridges class.
Before the semester i was hestiant to about this class because i did not choose for me i was helped from my counsler. But as i went into the clsss, i learned alot of tools that i need to know in order understand about the differents resources at HCC and UHH. Valerei made the class experince feel like reality life experinces.I learned how to be positive and successful in college, which is really needed for every student to know about. I would recommend this on course class to any one who is attending college for the first time and the counslers should also recommend this to students who are unfamiliar with what to expect in college. This class was a boost in academic confidence for me. I appercaite learning about what i can benefit from and this class really made an impact to my every day life. Mahalo Ms. Valerie Hafford for you teaching and guidance.. See you around.
