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

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.

This Prof. Is very good. He went out of his way and registred us for the first lecture in Wiley. I really enjoyed Wiley, is a good learning tool. However I would had like to have 3 test and 1 assignment.

i found his lectures to be a bit boring at times but they were also very to the point. He uses powerpoint so its easy to read. He only puts the important stuff on there and expects you to fill in the rest. Exams were easy if you know what to study. In infancy he focuses alot on experiments and studies.

I'm sorry to say that this was the worst course I had last year. Endless, boring lectures, boring textbook. He's a nice man, but a nice man does not a good course make.

I've learned nothing except for a short list of facts that I could have learned in five minutes. It's just not worth it, spending so much money and time on this boring and useless course. Take Personality or Social instead to fill the 2100 requirement.

Awful professor. This is what he posted on his course website: Course Grades (Note: I will not be entertaining any discussion about the course grades)! NOt sure what he means by that? His exams are brutal. 58.5% Class average!!!!! :(
