Dr. Wilson is probably the best teacher I have ever had. His class is fun and entertaining. I never missed a lecture. The use of Prezi was interesting and video chat through skype was awesome. It gave us the oportunity to hear the facts from people who are native to that particular country!!!

loved his teaching style. It was not just facts regurgitated from the book. Skype interviews were very interesting and entertaining at the same time being informative. El Profe's class is one to take.

Awesome!!! Not too excited at first but as the first class started I really enjoyed it. I didn't miss a single time. He made lectures very interesting always wanting to find out more about each country and being able to skype with people from each country we were covering was cool. Working with prezi which is like the new power point was also great

Very knowledgeable, like how he uses technology, i.e. skype, worldmaper, prezi, second life, etc. Took two of his classes and I would like to take another class, but I can't.

Professor Wilson's World Geography course is extremely fun and interesting. His lecture revolves around Prezi slides instead of PowerPoint, which is far better in my opinion. The most interesting part of his class, are his Skype interviews. It really gave me a better perspective on countries from people who live there.

Really neat class! I like his style of teaching! He doesn't use PowerPoint, but instead uses Prezi (which is super cool!). Did a few Skype talks with people from around the world, definitely interesting to hear from someone first hard to reinforce what we were discussing in class. Would recommend Wilson for anyone needing to take World Geography :)

Truly made class an interesting learning experience. This is the first lecture class I have ever taken that I never had to prevent myself from falling asleep in. He spoke in an easy enough manner so that all could understand but he never dumbed anything down. His use of Facebook and texting to stay in touch with the class was a pleasant change.

I like the way he uses videos that make sense with the lecture but that students can relate to. I also appreciate that I can ask him questions about the lecture through text messaging. I also appreciate that if he doesn't know the answer to the question you are asking he will find the answer to your question by his next lecture.

I really liked how he had a student cell phone where we could text him with questions during class or out of class, this really encourages people who are shy to speak to ask their questions. I liked how he incorportated videos to his lectures that tied strategically well. Another very eye opening assignment was the CO2 and me.

Dr. Wilson made this geology class relatable and interesting. His teaching methods make you think & help u to answer and question ideas & concepts that are new to you. His lectures are fun and bases his tests off these lectures. He presents relatable videos & provides chances for extra credit. Overall I enjoyed his class, he is a cool& funny prof.

I liked the videos which were really helpful, and the concrete examples you did in class because they helped me remeber the concepts. Sending txt messages is another thing i liked because some people are shy to ask questions. Overall, your class is really good there is nothing i would change up to know.

I really enjoyed the class. I would've like for the slides to have been in a different format to print (green Freindly) and include my own notes. I only started printing towards the end of the semester but it really helped writing my own notes on them and reviewing them. :)

Outstanding instructor, very knowledeage. What I like th emost is he's ability to bring in new technology to the classroom. However, there was a bit of inconsistancy on test # 3, as we did not cover much of what was on the test, as the professor was out during one of the lessons.

He is a really good professor. Lectures are really fun and interesting. Love the interaction with students through facebook and texting. Very innovating and is NOT ABOUT ROCKS! Though very interesting topics covered. He may go a bit fast in lecture but he is comprehensible.

Dr. Wilson's lecture facilitated the learning process for me. Especially, the mind mapping technique because it allowed me to better understand the ideas and concepts. Also, the lecture notes helped me a lot. Since Dr. Wilson sent us the lessons in pdf, I was able to print and bring them to class to take notes and use them as a study guide.
