Comment:
Never take her class I swear you will regret it. I've tried taking her classes twice and I dropped both because she is not a good prof. Shes a horrible professor and very hard marker. She thinks she can control people and uses her authority to do so. Dont leave the class to go to the washroom or come late or skip shell yell at you. Worst experience

Yes, her lectures are dense and her syllabus theory-heavy, but Kass Banning is a knowledgeable and engaging lecturer. She's also a kind, approachable person with a genuine investment in helping students learn and explore their own interests

Comment:
Never ever take a course with Kass Banning. She made a remark about a student's mental health very lightly and was rude and disrespectful towards student contribution. Everyone felt uncomfortable. Although her slides are easy to follow, she sometimes goes off topic and is very condescending . She requires students to sit in the front. Can't be late

Disorganized lectures and difficult reading material. Wastes lecture time to tell irrelevant stories and jokes only she thinks are funny.

Comment:
If you want to gain the most from taking one of her classes, make sure you've done intro to film, in addition to film cultures 1 and 2. Also, she's extremely caring and helpful when it comes to papers - if you need help, ask for it! Her lectures are interesting and take from the readings quite a bit, she does an excellent job of summarizing.

Comment:
The course pack is interesting but her lectures are disorganized, she interrupts students, she doesn't clearly tie together readings+films+lectures and despite the class goal of countering eurocentrism she kinda falls into that trap sometimes.

Comment:
Kass Banning is extremely disorganized in her lectures. She makes the students do useless presentations instead of actually teaching the course material herself as a professor should. She concerns herself more with asserting her power to fulfill her ego. Extremely upsetting that such a person has hi-jacked all the upper year courses

Interesting course pack...but VERY difficult to get through. One of the biggest I've ever used; most of it was useless and made the course more confusing. Lectures were disorganized and often unfocused. Two hard midterms and an *impossible* exam!

This is the most rude disrespectful prof I have EVER had. Her lectures are extremely hard to follow, and she is rude to all students who are simply trying to learn. I will never take a class with this prof ever agian.

Lectures tended to be hard to follow. Much better in discussion or one-on-one scenarios. Very knowledgable. Extremely nice, helpful and encouraging. Sad she's gone from UofT.

She is extremely critical and rude. Her classes are disorganized and her ideas are all over the place. Nobody ever knew what she was talking about, her lectures are a series of digression after digression. Awful. She was the worst prof I've ever had!

She's funny! Course material isn't easy, but she genuinely tries to 'unpack' it for you in tutorial. Very bright woman. I like her quirks. Understanding, as well.
