The class is boring but the Professor could make it more interesting if he put in more effort. All the examples he uses and all the activities seem really dated. Not the worse professor by any stretch but maybe average or below average.

Comment:
His tests are straight forward, but often tricky. The classes are really boring, but you have to attend because of clicker (that sometimes he doesn't even give). No extra credit whatsoever. He does not seem to care about his students as people, simply as numbers who are in class. Overall easy class, but would not take it again.

Comment:
Tests are very straight forward, all the information comes from the slides and some from the reading. I never felt surprised by a question on the tests. He is very caring and funny. There is a lot of assignments, but the readings are usually interesting articles from New York Times or something like that. Lecture can be boring a lot though.

Comment:
Pretty dry lectures, but if you go to class and study the powerpoint slides (which he now posts on Canvas for his students), you'll be fine. Do the readings; first test really didn't have much from the readings, but after that they start appearing. Just skim them for the important details that he repeats in class!!

Comment:
Dr. Clark is a decent guy, other than you can definitely feel that he sees you as a number and not a student. Despite me having doctor's notes for absences and explaining my personal situation, he actually got mad and wasn't very available. TA does most. Class isn't hard but not very easy either. Just make sure to do the occasional assignment.

Comment:
Dr. Clark is the type of professor that you want for a class like this. Most of the material is relatively dry and uninteresting(unless this is your major) but Dr. Clark goes out of his way to keep lectures intriguing. Advice: The first exam is the easiest so DO NOT blow off the others, don't miss class unless you have too, take solid notes.

This class was amazing. It's very interesting and Prof. Clark really cares about his students doing well. There's a lot of reading, but he provides you with the articles and they're not that difficult. His tests are straightforward, but a good deal of the questions come from the readings. You have to study to do well, but he's very fair.

Dr. Clark has to be the most chill prof. here! Exam questions come straight from his lecture slides to come to class (he doesn't post them online). No textbook, uses clickers for participation points, 2 articles on any event related to the course material, and 6 activities (some in groups some individual). Really easy gen ed if you need one!

Case studies are interactive with active business strategies. Good choices of case studies and the transition between the text book and case studies is apt.

He has clear powerpoint presentations so it is easy to understand class. He wants clickers to get attendance which are important so be sure to have one friend in the class in any case.

Prof. Clark is the MAN!!! I don't know how people average B's on the tests. If you read the articles (total of like 6 pages) and are half alive in class, it's an easy A. Group projects can screw you over if you have a terrible group. Clark is also e the most hilarious people you will ever meet. Take this guy if you go to Penn State.

Professor Clark is the best teacher I ever had- hands down. He is fair and keeps the material interesting. It's classes like this that make the college experience a little better. I definitely recommend this class.

I found this class to be really interesting because I know some of the things we learned about I will see/experience in the future with jobs. Professor Clark on the other hand is kind of scatter-brained and when you would ask him questions about his class he never could really give you a straight answer.

Some of the material taught in class is painfully boring and nittany notes helped a lot with that! You have to take notes in class as well because no notes are provided online. Good luck asking someone to borrow their notes if you don't go to class. Exams are fair with multichoice questions and short-answer too.

Such a nice guy. I actually found the class very interesting and I learned a lot. Learn how to take good notes. The most valuable information, he speaks. For class assignments, they don't like giving out 100 but they will give a 95 (There will be a new TA so that might change) Overall, easy class..sometimes boring but aren't they all lol

Boring lectures, but you have to attend to get the notes, which is what the tests are based off of. The recitation assignments are pretty easy and the tests aren't overly hard, assuming you got the class notes. The TAs grading is pretty inconsistent, and they take points off at random and can't explain why they took off points, even if you ask them

Professor Clark is the man! For everyone that says this class is stupid, I disagree. If you don't like it, then don't go to lecture. But Clark is a very good professor, and is very knowledgeable in the field of labor studies. Great class, great professor.

This is a stupid class. Also, he's a nice guy, but not a very good professor. He just reads off the slides, and rarely provides additional or interesting information. This was by far the most boring class I've taken yet at PennState. Not recommended.

Exam isnt testing student's ability to understand material such as what company involved in what technique ages ago doesnt help me in the future. Assignment seems very easy, but TA takes points off without any mark on your work, so u never know what u did wrong.
