BIS2C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Keen is extremely clear in her lecture organization. Midterms highlighted the key points, there never was really any surprises. Most of the material you need to know is in lecture, the book is more so supplementary. Attend class, take notes, and study for the quizzes and you should be fine!

BIS 2C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Professor Keen is simply amazing! She goes out of her way to help her students! I failed Bis 2B because my teachers were awful. This made me fearful of taking Bis 2C however Keen and Dehesh made the class so interesting and doable! I got an A in this class so I couldn't be happier!

I absolutely loved this class (taught with Professor Dehesh). They were both amazing lecturers, which made the class even more interesting. This class isn't a lot of work, but do the study questions and review the slides. Know your material and you'll be good for the midterms! If you work for it, the A is attainable!

Good, clear lecturer (lots of pictures and examples) posts podcasts and lecture slides. Offers extra credit plus study questions and practice exams. Tests were super easy (i got a 97% on the last midterm). She funny and easy to listen to. Definitely take her if you can!

BIS2C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Helpful during office hours, but awful lecturer-slides all over the place. tries to do visual-oriented explanations but not very effective sometimes. Fair exams, LOTS of info and details to know. 2 midterms, 1 final. Graded Quizzes mandatory, and there are also class participation clicker bonuses. Material is easy, but work load is a lot sometimes.

BIS2C Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I'm surprised at how highly Dr Keen is rated. She is a mostly competent lecturer, but often frustrating in the disconnect between the way she presents material and the way she tests it. Her lectures are often devoid of information, and they are poorly timed and paced. She is enthusiastic, but do not mistake this for being highly qualified.

She is very nice, extremely clear and a fair tester. Make sure you print her slides and take notes on them, because they don't have much info. She also gives out lots of extra credit points so make sure you do those!I would definitely take her again :)

Great professor! Very clear and passionate about the subject. If you listen to the podcasts and go through lecture slides before the tests, you'll do fine. The exams are fair and everything you need to know will be gone over in lecture.

Keen is obviously in love with what she teaches, and she tries to bring that passion to her students too. Her lectures are very clear, but they move quickly so do the reading beforehand. If anything doesn't make sense, go to her office hours - she goes out of her way to explain things to you, and give you interesting real world examples!
