Comment:
She is the best professor I had. Her lectures are so interesting, not only for grades but also for real life. You learn things that will help you become a better human being. Showing up wasn't even a burden. She is so passionate about what she teaches, she is actually the one who triggered my desire to pursue my studies in human sexuality.

Peggy is genuinely one of the best people I've ever met. She doesn't e-mail or use slides but she has a disability that makes it very hard for her to type so please don't think it's because she's being mean. She's the epitome of career goals- anyone who thinks her views aren't backed up by research is crazy. She's INCREDIBLY knowledgeable!

Amazing prof, the best I've had at uO. There are no electronics/posted notes so be prepared to take your own, and she expects class participation. Really interesting lecturer and tells you information you actually care about. Midterms aren't hard at all if you do the readings. Easily accessible after class and cares about her students. 10/10.

Doctor Peggy is the best prof I've ever had in psych so far and I've been here at U ottawa for five years. She's really kind. I was sick for some weeks and I went to talk to her about it with my doctor's note. And she was so understanding and genuinely caring. Her lectures are also very fun, made 3 hr lecture a breeze. If you can, take her course!

She is the best prof I have ever had. I missed her as soon as the last class of the semester was over. Every student would be lucky to be taught by such a caring, respected and extraordinary teacher like Peggy. I will never forget her and the way she changed my life during this class. She truly is an inspiration and I'm so lucky to know her.

Peggy is a truly remarkable teacher. She stands out amongst the many lacklustre professors out there. She cares about her students, and clearly loves what she is doing. I luckily got to take two classes with her, both Human Sexuality classes, and they were some of the best courses I have taken in University. Should be mandatory for everyone!

I enjoyed PSY3122 with Peggy, however I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for an easy A+. Interesting lectures, lots of group discussions. The exams were fair, but the markings were not, I got points deducted for adding extra information. The final had a lot of random MCQ that were extremely specific/not found in the coursepack.

The most relevant psychology class I have taken so far. I learned so much! No laptops, no slides in her class so get prepared to take notes (doable for me as a non native speaker). Prepares you very well for the exams. Encourages class discussion. Very approachable even outside class hours. Take this class if you get the chance!!!

The best class I've ever taken. NO COMPUTERS though at all allowed in class. She also gives you a general idea of what are going to be on exams as questions. Midterm 40% + final 60% (option to do a research paper to divy up the grading a bit). Learned so much about my health and changed me for the better. Do the readings for mc part of exams (15pts

She is AMAZING. Hands down my favourite professor at UOttawa. She is so knowledgeable and is willing to answer your questions all day every day. I actually looked forward to her class every week. She conveys material that is actually useful in real life and does't sugar coat anything. It's great. Also, she is hilarious. Very approachable.

Peggy was AMAZING. I'm in 4th year and this is by far my favourite professor to date, and I've had many. You won't do well if you don't show up to class or do the readings. I had her in a 7-10 block, I almost wished her classes were longer. She is so knowledgeable and makes it fun. Write down every word she says, study it, and you'll do well.

Keep your own views out of science. or better yet, take the science out of social science, and call it social studies. The prof took it upon her to ensure, only what she wanted taught to the class was taught, many contradicting studies were ignored, and Socialism and Feminism is a VIEW not SCIENCE and thus should be kept out of University courses.

INCREDIBLE prof. Truly a gem. She gave my class her personal phone number in case we needed help on understanding concepts. So passionate about her work and very involved with the students. There's something about her that differentiates her from all other profs at University of Ottawa, I can't quite explain it. Just incredible.

Peggy is an amazing prof who cares a lot about her students. The material itself is interesting and Peggy's lecturing and personality make it that much more enjoyable. Students basically make up the exam questions - no surprises. I did most of the readings but material is covered thoroughly in class. You have to work for your A. Best class and prof

My favorite class so far -- Peggy will change your life! Super knowledgeable, although she is very specific on tests. She clearly wants to help students (gives exact midterm/exam questions beforehand), and always conveys the subject matter in an interesting way. You will learn a lot from this woman.

An inspirational, kind, funny, and knowledgeable professor, Dr. Kleinplatz will capture you from the first lecture to the last. The content of the course was extremely interesting and relevant. Tests and papers are not graded easily, but it is completely worth it, as this woman will change your life.

Very interesting course material. Prof is clear with what she expects from students, and is always willing to help. Must do readings in order to do well. Does not let students use any technology for this course which makes it easier to actually learn without distraction. 100% would recommend this class.

Best prof I've taken. Super interesting readings (from a course pack). Midterm and final are a combination of M/C and long answer, make sure you do the readings for the M/C and combine info from the lectures and the book for long answers (she gives them to you in advance). 3 hour lectures go by in a flash. Extremely caring prof.
