Professor Adler, really knows his stuff! His delivery is interesting and memorable seems he uses persona examples. IF you go speak with him - VERY HELPFUL. Fair marker too! Intense readings but assignments are DEFINITELY FAIR.

Honestly loved his class.He was very knowledgeable and presented his material very clearly. His tests were exactly from the material covered, nothing too hard. Most of the questions on the test were from the lectures, so classes should be attended. I loved him and will definitely take another course with him if the chance comes up.

He is kind, and course was enjoyable. Not very hard. His lectures are on moodle, but attending class is helpful to get an A. Textbook is easy to read. Learned many things that can be used in real life scenarios.

He is a nice professor, his tests are more than fair and he understands people who hate multiple choices, the long answer questions are easy and gives you a chance to get a high mark :) i do recommend him :)

I enjoyed this class a lot. His lectures were interesting, he used real life examples, and he didn't ignore student questions as some profs do. He's genuinely a nice guy and I would defiantly take another course with him. On another note, his tests can be confusing with the multiple choice but just keep up with the readings/lectures and u'll b fine

PSYC4010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Very good at explaining the material clearly, but a little too heavily focused on infancy (his specialty). Assignments are a lot of work sometimes for very little mark (ie. 12.5% term paper). Approachable, and easy to talk to. Marking seems a bit too tough, considering how vague the instructions can be. Would prefer a course kit option for reading

LOVED HIM!!!! Hes classes are great. He goes through each slide providing multiple examples to help illustrate the concepts. He uses personal examples with his kids which is really cute. Exams are FAIR! 80% come from lecture and the rest from the text. Love him, would definitely take another class with him

Everything he teaches is valuable information. He's a great lecturer and the exams are fair. Text book and attendance is mandatory.

Adler is passionate but his class content is too dull, lots of rather pointless points to memorize

He is very knowledgeable about infant development, unfortunately most of the course focuses on it and can get quite boring. There is great variability in his marking, everything from A's to F's, you need to really work hard for your grade.
