Nesbit is such a kind professor and really cares about his students. He gives good feedback and what we learned throughout the course were very interesting and I would definitely take courses with him again.

Comment:
He is a kind prof, and he is always ready to help. The paper of this course is not easy, and the lecture is not always engaging. However, finishing the reading, participating the tutorials, and reviewing slides make it possible for students to learn a lot and pass. The textbook required, and the digital version is accessible online.

HONESTLY, the only professor that I had who actually cared about their students this semester, having COVID. He gave us 5 extra bonus points as we did not do as well on the final to MATCH the average of the in class final. VERY thoughtful. Before COVID (the midterm) was actually very fair as well. STUDY THE TEXTBOOK.

Dr. Nesbit is absolutely incredible. His are some of the best university lectures I have experienced, as they are very engaging and contain relevant, valuable, and thought provoking information. His teaching and expectations are clear, helpful, fair, and informative. Concepts learned will stay with you long term, and will be useful in the future.

I took educ 220 as an online class and GPA booster. It's a lot harder than I thought! Weekly quizzes, bi-weekly online group discussions that you have to post in 3 times a week for a passing grade, and lots of written work plus a final paper. My TA Daniel was great and super helpful. Midterm and final exams were also very hard. So study up!

His lectures can be boring, but he is extremely nice and fair. EDUC222 itself is boring and dry, so its not all his fault. Don't listen to the bad reviews, Nesbit is a nice guy and good prof.

Only heard from the prof when he came in to say hi during the midterm, didn't show up for the final. course could have been better if I had a different ta. she was very on top of due dates, however (mariah) was an extremely tough grader and marked unfairly. she marked every written assignment in less then an hr ver explained what was done wrong

He was very understanding in terms of possible obstacles in coming to class (bus strike), and he gave good examples in lectures that help students understand the material more.

He's okay, but sometimes he forgets what he's saying and takes a couple of seconds. Also, I don't find him very engaging, I think he is on the boring side. He really makes those 50 minute lectures feel like 2 hours.

Get ready to memorize the textbook from cover to cover. Quizzes and practice exam are nothing like the actual thing. TA (Mladen) specified this and also gave us the wrong chapter on the practice exam (one that we didn't cover and was not on the final). Unresponsive to his online office in Canvas. This class was harder than it needed to be.

John is a fine professor, lectures are a little slow but everything is posted online. Honestly didn't attend more than 4 lectures and never once went to the tutorial and I'm still getting over 90% in the course. Study the slides and the textbook, DEFINITELY do the quizzes and you'll do fine.

Comment:
John is a wonderful human and professor. But I had an immense problem with one of his TA instructors who penalized students unfairly to the point of John having to intervene. I hope she was removed from her position. If not, you'll know who she is upon receiving your first few assignments back. Also, PLEASE study the ENTIRE textbook in detail!

Comment:
Took the course online and yes, the 3 discussion posts a week were annoying but manageable. Essays are easy (based on discussion posts) and graded fairly. The midterm and final honestly weren't that bad- lots of definitions but it was like basically any other psychology course midterm (but I'm a psych minor so I guess I'm used to that)

Took educ 220 online, the class is quite difficult. Discussion posts were tedious and required you to post 3 posts on 3 different days to get full marks. who has time for that? Also, midterm exam was very difficult and the practice quizzes were irrelevant to the midterm. AVOID THIS CLASS!

Comment:
I took the online EDUC 220 and it was more challenging and unpleasant than it needed to be. The exams cover way too much material (7 chapters each) and the questions are too detailed and specific; providing choices on topics would have been better. The online portion (discussions) are also very tedious and not engaging as they were meant to be.

Comment:
Dr. Nesbit is a very boring professor, and not very good at teaching. He is extremely monotone, and hard to follow. The TA's are what make this an interesting course. The exams are somewhat hard, and one needs to memorize some sections of the textbook.
