If you want to learn something that will actually benefit you in real life, than you will not regret taking his courses. He teaches you how to communicate with others to enhance warmth, genuineness, and empathy. My only regret is that I cannot continue taking graduate level communication courses in Hawaii.

Dr. G is very helpful. He insures everyone in the class participates and learns from one another. This class (COM 441) has wonderful discussions and will change your perspective as a leader and individual.

Dr G works hard to help everyone. His personal style in class is refreshing. He speaks to you directly even when addressing the class as a whole. Take his class, it will change your outlook on life forever

Dr. G. was influential in my declaring my major in COM. His style of teaching is different in a good way.Wisdom circle took me by surprise in COM200, but I quickly adapted & made some amazing friends in classes. Books have been great at facilitating learning, including his. Lots of discussion in class. Helped me grow as individual.

Ron Gordon is a skilled teacher and knows his material. I question his ethics however in requiring his own book in the curriculum (though we hardly used it) and then plugging more of his work on the last day of class. I judge it a little hypocritical to teach integrity in leadership while trying to get some extra books sales in on the side.

Absolute best teacher of my college experience.Having Dr. G. as my professor has literally changed my life! He isn't a hard teacher,but if you don't come to class prepared, and if you don't participate: your grade will suffer. It isn't hard to get an A, but he doesn't just hand them out either. DO the reading, come to class, and get involved.

I've taken every class offered by Dr. G. Allot of his classes draw from each other and collect a banquet of interpersonal communication skills. He will sit with you among the desks each class & he never lectures endlessly. Class always feel like an amazing conversation as he sits among class mates. Best teacher I've ever had.

If you don't mind kissing up to him and feeding his ego, you can get an easy A. But don't go to his class expecting to actually LEARN something, unless it's from the textbook. He is always right, and anyone who disagrees with him is always wrong. Students with brown noses will have an easy time here.

Best class i have ever taken. Ron is not only a great teacher but a great person. Book is genuis and is applicable to daily life. Take my word, if you have the opportunity then take this class, do it.. If you are a com major it will change the way you look at life. Great way to meet other com majors on campus.Best teacher at Uh far and away.

Find out what a wisdom circle is. If that's you, you'll love the class. Otherwise, you might do better elsewhere. Definitely a reason his classes still have space.

He doesn't practice what he preaches. Grade will suffer if you have a problem with him and he knows it.

He is full of himself, soft spoken but very condescending, if he doesn't like you he will be rude. The book assigned was the best part of the course, teaching skills are lagging and did not facilitate my learning. Plays favorites, and grades accordingly. I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM. He's easy if you tell him what he wants to hear

Dr. G's Human Dialogue class will change your world and how you have conversations with friends. This class is so different - Dr. G makes me want to come to class and helps me enjoy it. Everyone in this class became friends and we all had amazing dialogues where we deeply discussed things and created new ideas. Awesome class for anyone

Everyone should take this class. Everyone in my class became close friends. Dr. G doesn't teach like others profs - his warm communication and circular arrangement creates a community unlike any other classroom will have. This class will help anyone and can be enjoyed by anyone and I strongly recommend it to anyone, whatever major.

As long as you participate, you get the grade. There are two papers due, 2 pages, which are considered the midterm and the final.

Best class offered by UHH! Everyone should take it! Know that you get out of it what you put in. Participation is a must. Dr. G is soft-spoken and honest. Creates a safe caring environment for open communication. Wisdom Circles were strange, at first, but became highly anticipated. Good study guides. Fair exams. Easy reading assignments. Concerned.
