Comment:
The course itself was easy enough & my TA was great, but prof Bazely is both a terrible lecturer and human. Shes never taught anything in lect, just talks about her twitter and awards fml And I witnessed her berating students who needed clarification on the wording of something bc English wasnt their 1st language The book is a better prof

I had her for a Field course and i would totally take a course of hers again. She is very passionate about what she teaches and will not hesitate to help those who need it. She gave so many useful tips when it comes to reseaching and writing reports and she genuinely cares for the wellbeing of her students.

Every lecture: late, spent 20 min getting IT to help with her computer, bragged about her achievements, & used last 10 min of class to flip through slides hurriedly & tell the class to "just read the text". Seemed sweet, but it was a facade. I personally observed her being hostile and downright spiteful to students. Andd she got a teaching award.

VERY disorganized but you gotta love her, shes so understanding. gives bares feedback and extensions, shes bad at emailing back but once you get the hold of her she'll talk until youve understood. She delays a lot of stuff, it was fun course with her but she made me anxious when she wouldnt post anything on the moodle

Comment:
Dawn is the best professor I've ever had. People complain because they think plant courses are supposed to be automatically easy. BIOL 2010 is a little crazy with the multiple choice but if you can get through that, the 3000 and 4000 level courses she teaches are fantastic and much more application based. Put in the effort and you WILL see results!

Comment:
By far the MOST disorganized mess of a class I've ever taken. We had way too many projects to be completed in a semester and in the end, she marked none of them. She cared more about talking abut herself and her accomplishments than teaching an actual class. She gave us all an A, but I'm not sure the insanity I went through was worth it.

Comment:
Prof. Bazely is so passionate about what she does! Wish the lectures were more organized! BIOL 2010 was a fair course overall. Tests were decent, lab reports are easy, lab quizzes require lots of memorization, final was... kinda a disaster... like 400 MC... STUDY A LOT FOR THE EXAM! B+ pretty easy to get, A requires some work but not impossible

Ridiculous tests (90-110 mark on a 45 min midterm, 430+ marks on the final). Spends 35/45 min talking about her trip to northern Canada and how she waters her plants. Covered 1/3 of the course material and crammed the rest in 2 weeks (still added that to the final). Simply awful.

Tests were long (90 questions),and quizes were unfair (point to a pic on a slide which is barely visible and havent seen before),also have hard markings for the lab. Dont see any positives to taking this course.

Disorganized prof who failed to complete the course schedule. The chapters she couldn't cover, she assigned them as readings and still included them on our exam. She would waste our time telling useless stories in class which was the reason to why we didn't cover all the course material. She talks about random things like her sweater for a long tim

Comment:
This prof literally teaches NOTHING. Like the majority of the lecture she spends taking about useless unless unrelated topics. Her class notes are horrible because nothing on her notes are actually on the test. You HAVE TO READ THE ENTIRE TEXTBOOK to do good. She does bonus questions on what your TA's master/PhD topics are. HOW WOULD I KNOW THAT

If you have her, RUN. She is the worst prof I have ever had. Does not teach anything. Relies VERY HEAVILY on the textbook and expects you to memorize all the details. She is extremely hypocritical and a liar. She'll talk about how good of a prof she is and if you come to class then you'll do well and that her tests are easy. ALL LIES.

Comment:
I was excited in the beginning of the course since she seemed to have an amazing, bright and energetic personality. However , as the course progressed, her perky personality made it very easy for her to wander off topic. tbh, for a 45 min class, roughly only 15-20 mins of class was actual course content. labs are doable and can be fun but tedious.

Well...I started off liking her energetic personality but as others have mentioned she is very disorganized! - which personally gives me anxiety + diminishes my motivation to put in effort for a course :/ I came to every single class prior to midterm1 and i regretted it.. This course is really textbook memorization based.

She's truly a gem. BEST PROF I'VE HAD AT YORK BY FAR. She actually cares about you. I really wanted to meet a biology prof that actually cares about you and I finally did. She's great. TAKE EVERY COURSE SHE OFFERS. YOU WON'T REGRET IT.

One of the worst professors I have had! She's a very nice person, but completely disorganized! Takes the first 20 mins out of each 50 min lecture to talk about her twitter and yet she wonders why students don't come to class- she has absolutely no self-awareness. This class isn't that hard, but it is a TON of work - avoid if you can!
