"Would take again"

His is one of the fewest profs in Ryerson who you would actually admire. Although i am getting an 80 in the class its very easy to end up with at least an 85 if you attend lectures and jot down important points. This course was supposed to be boring but you come to class and discuss about the slides. Thats it. Nothing hard.

POL129 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Absolute brilliant professor! He has an outstanding contribution to the study of Political Science. He is constantly being cited and is one of the few professors at Ryerson to really look up to. This course is so good. Just take notes on what he says in class and use it when writing essays. He is not the type of professor to mark hard for no reason

POL129 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The prof is really interested in the topic and is very enthusiastic. However, he is disorganized and goes off topic which leads to him rushing through the last part of the lectures. We did not cover all the topics outlined in course syllabus because he goes off topic a lot. Also, goes over class time a lot. TA marks everything except final

He is one of the most passionate professors I have ever had. He cares about his students and engages students in the work. He is a hard marker but makes you push your limits. Loved his course!

prof is nice guy, lectures are extremely boring. doesn't want you using your phone and marks on attendance. course itself is boring as heck. two essays and a final (essay format) = three essays...second essay and final were marked extremely hard either by him or the G.A

He was actually a nice person, but the TA marked the essays and that cost a lot of the grade. My essay was apparently good, but many people (all?) didn't reference key facts within parentheses inside the essay itself. Footnotes aren't required, but those small references that went missing added up to lower the mark. Attend tutorials for marks.

He has a great, positive attitude that promotes contribution. He is very passionate about the content so he often gets carried away. his background is in history so I found that he placed a lot of historical emphasis on the content.

notell 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

This professor is interested in the subject matter but not so concerned with what students have to say. I wonder if he even listens?! He just says "uh huh" and "mmm..." while nodding and looking around the rest of the class for facial reactions. Don't let his easy-going-personality sway you to try less hard because his marking IS NOT easy going!

I find his teaching style really boring. Not to mention he literally doen't know when to stop or give breaks. He over-processes student's brain and thus, hard to follow.
