Excellent instructor. Lectures and explains concepts well and with great clarity. He is very interested in the subject that he teaches, and he relates well with students. I appreciated how open-minded and easy going he is. His classes are a great platform for sharing and debating ideas. Pay attention in class and participate in every lecture.

He's a pomo charlatan, but it's not a particularly hard class if you know how to write an essay.

He clearly has a passion for what he teaches and his lectures were very informative. I disagreed with a lot of the course material and the individuals that we studied and it seemed more philosophically-oriented.

Jakub is able to clearly and thoroughly present material in an engaging fashion and maintain an environment conducive to questions and discussion. He is receptive to student ideas and input and tries to minimize the hierarchy in the classroom setting. If you can take a course with Jakub, do it.

Soci327 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very engaging in class. You can tell he has a passion for what he is teaching. I do think he had some unreasonable expectations regarding the amount of reading he required. Sometimes he was struggled to keep his expectations at a undergrad level.

He is interesting and definitely knows his theory. He is open to debates and had great discussions in class. Not an easy marker and definitely makes you work for it. However there are only two assignments (no exams).
