Comment:
Please look out for her percentages in grading on Day 1 of the syllabus review. In Visual Art, the projects or artwork (Practical) should be of equal value to testing. Avoid butting heads with her or making her work beyond normal hours. She gave me excellent feedback on my projects but made other students in my class cry for her lack of filter.

Comment:
Many of the students in my class enjoyed learning from Jane. I think I like her as a person but our instruction/learning styles just dont match up. Many of the assignments were so specific I didnt feel I could do any me artwork or do anything slightly different out of fear that I would have to redo the assignment or something like that.

Comment:
Jane is rude and condescending, has terrible communication skills, blames students for her own mistakes/failures as a professor, and is completely disorganized. Easily the worst prof I've had at VIU. She's also completely tech illiterate, which is a big problem when the course is online due to covid-19. I'll never take a course with her again.

Comment:
She's a slightly easy grader, and she doesn't give much feedback on assignments. "Critique" days don't actually involve a lot of crit, with her prompting only a couple comments from the class for each. Classes are also mostly practical, with some demonstration of new ideas at the start. She wasn't very organized with the syllabus.

Comment:
Jane is insensitive and should NOT be a teacher. She is highly intolerant of international students and expects them to speak perfect English and be perfectly accustomed to Canadian culture, yet she will lead an art tour to a country in which Im sure she doesnt speak the language of. I have no respect for Jane after witnessing her cruel behaviour

Comment:
Gives barely enough time to complete any of the in-class work. Homework projects are extremely stressful and the instructions given does not make any sense. Only take this class if you are REALLY into art, and it's your Major.

Jane was a bit condescending, especially when confused about her Information- lacking instructions. Her assignments weren't very clear, and often if you did mess up, she made you feel 2 feet tall.

Thought she was fair and I learned quite a bit. She was willing to give help if needed too. I Wondered why she couldn't use digital pictures instead of slides that were terrible quality though. Also I heard from a lot of people the class was more interesting if taken from Justin.

Doesn't know how to work the projector, and doesn't analyze the slides at all. Take this course with Justin McGrail if you want to learn anything, hes a beauty!!

I think that Jane is a really great instructor, probably my favorite in the Art department. She is firm but fair in her expectations. Some of the instructors I had didn't seem to offer much help or constructive feedback, but I never got that feeling from Jane. Bravo Jane!!

Isn't it nice when teachers pull you aside to ask if you have mental probelms? Sure, mental issues with a straight A highschool record. People go to school to learn NEW THINGS, or build talent. Not to feel crushed. Try working with students before critisizing them.

Comment:
Well, what can i say, shes terrible. Scatter brained and completely negative in her 'helpful' comments. She always seems to choose favorites, and often the favorites are **** choices, meaning of course that if your male, your most likely gonna get roughly a C-. If students could fire teachers, she would be the first to burn.

A very wise and understanding woman. Strict as an instructor...doesn't tolerate any slacking off. Talented and highly educated in her field...it shows in her work. Gives good advice.

Comment:
Jane Cole is one of the most unbelievably ineffective teachers I've met. Not only is she rude (one time I said hi to her in the bathroom and she GRUNTED at me in return). She seems narrow-minded and bitter and doesn't encourage experimentation. Her own work I found boring, unadventurous and outdated. She's a good-lecturer though.

She is a weird one. she enjoys to make fun of students that she doesn't like. "Attendence is the key to a good artist. If you are late, tell me you are here because I will not see you" - Jane Cole

Jane is a great teacher. Anyone who says they learned nothing from her is unteachable. She is fair and gives high marks to those who deserve it. She is a wonderful woman and an accomplished artist. Jane rocks!

Good: smiles. Has an amusing voice. Helpful final critiques. Isn't satan. Not so good: Can be very particular about what she wants to see, regardless of whether or not the student can justify their actions.

Treats? Never saw any of that! Very rude to students - no excuse for that! (why make us feel like we're DIRT?) Didn't learn much of anything, even when we asked ... Attendance IS very important to this Prof. (as it should be, but not to SUCH extent) Some good feedback at crits, not much though!
