All the student evaluation comments:

 

        A good teacher (the best Iíve had this quarter, actually) & willing to learn from students.

        The class is pretty good. I like it. At the beginning I think it is little bit short of interaction between teacher and student. But Latter I found it is really getting better. I learn a lot from it.

        Not bad, considering this is 1st time teaching. Too much Power Point & not enough free discussion.

        Instructor well-organized, shows desire and willingness to teach. Only weaknesses are lack of good English-sepeaking skills and misspelling. However, these are minor, probably unavoidable (considering instructor is not native English speaker), and I think the instructor did an overall good job.

        The lecture stuff can be hard to study. A cool subject hosted on a CVS repository.

        Something needs to be done to kind of liven up the class or stimulate more interest. One idea we talked about was integrating a large project with the chapters. For example, teach the chapter about design, then show how lessons learned from the chapter can be applied to the project.

        Youíre going to fit in here very well. You still need to work on your teaching skills.

        The material was covered very rapidly making it hard to learn the complete context of the material.

        Need to remind people of next classí assignments due.

        Presentations were well done, but the darkness of the room makes it hard to stay focused.

All the student evaluation comments:

 

        A wonderful instructor. And you can be even better after you get more experience. It would be better if we get the slide hard copy before the class. I don't like the dark room.

        The 8 AM time slot combined with the "lights out" + PowerPoint format made nodding off unavoidable at times.

        Very good preparation for the class and well organized.
