I think the student below did not put in any effort. Further all assignments were graded by the TA and not the prof. I had great feedback from the TA.

Logan didnt make feedbacks after grading our assignments or research paper, he also reply short emails( just one line), he doesnt care for the students , and he is super unfriendly. Also he doesnt have clear grading criteria.

Ive taken classes with this prof both in person and online. He's an ok prof in person but online he is not the greatest. His instructions are not very clear and he is not easy to reach over email. Would not recommend him.

Logan is good, but the TA was difficult to understand. Lectures were on point. Should grade on a curve. Discussion time was also very helpful.

IS 200 was an eye opener. Too much theory, but in the second half of the course all makes sense. TA was tough. Logan was accommodating and good

Taking the course with him was probably one of my biggest mistakes. He doesnt care about students, let TA did all the work. He cancelled so many lectures. Extremely lack of communication. You dont know what is going on in his class and he always tries to ghost you.

Ive taken IS101 (in person) and IS200 (pandemic online) with Logan. Ive enjoyed the content and hes a good lecturer. I was able to achieve an A in IS101, but on other hand Im hoping to get a B- in IS200. I would say the main difference is the difficulty level of the paper and the expectation of the TA you have more so than Logans teaching.

Logan is very funny, and gives good lectures. He uses very many relevant examples within global issues from the past or recent which I find helps my understanding of the course concepts. However, his assignments are quite difficult and assign a lot of readings.

If you are at SFU then taking a class with him will increase your general understanding of politics. His knowledge and experience in the fields of IS and Politics is vast therefore students learn a lot

Logan's lectures are relatively clear and illustrates his points well. I only wish that he slowed down a bit! we often rushed through lecture, only to finish 20-30 minutes early (of a 2 hr lecture). The class wasn't too hard, and provided you put in the effort, you should get a decent grade. Overall, solid prof, and a cool dude

I found that attendance was not mandatory but he gives engaging lectures and elaborates well on his lecture slides. Fair marker over all and straightforward. I appreciate his humourous remarks in class. We also had a take home final as he had to take a trip overseas. Would definitely take another course with him.
