Posts audio recordings of the lectures and power points after each class. Exams can be tough, but you need to put a lot of detail into your answers to get a good grade. Make sure to read the text for some of the extra details required for the test answers.

Dr. Prkachin is a phenomenal professor and the delivery of his lectures keeps you interested. You can see the passion for his work within him and his brilliance in psychology makes you like a sponge in the classroom. He's somewhat of a tough grader so study all the handouts he gives you! Lots of reading but I promise you will learn so much!

Ken is extremely helpful. One of the best profs in the Psychology department. Very well organized, knowledgeable, and supportive of his students. He expects you to be responsible for your own learning, but is VERY willing to help you when you need it. His lecture slides and recordings are posted online. Content is interesting!

Comment:
Ken is clear and concise in his lectures. Perfectly outlines what is expected from you as a student. Amazing researcher and is highly personable. I would highly recommend any course with Dr. Prkachin. If you are looking for an "easy A", wrong guy. You need to know your stuff inside out. He doesn't hold your hand.

Comment:
It's not surprise that Ken is the one, if not arguably, the best psyc prof at UNBC. Can get boring, but also can be quite funny. Wish he was still the Chair of the Department, but what can you do I guess. Take his classes and actually learn something other than regurgitating facts and definitions back onto paper. Aside from low-level classes...

Monotone lecturer, puts you to sleep, but smart guy, wouldn't know plagerism if it hit him in the head, like the fact that he can be fond having beers with the students often.

Comment:
Super smart and obviously knows what he's talking about... but needs to take it down a level so we lowly undergrads can understand. His voice is kinda monotone but when he's excited or in a good mood he can be really funny. I worked my ass off in his class and did okay.
