Weekly participation and 3 papers. Some cool insights to be gained from the weekly readings, as well. Not the easiest course but pretty straightforward. Online so it's more based on TA than Bai;. TA was helpful and available.

Education 230 is an amazing course. At the beginning of the course, you will be extremely confused and not used to her teaching methods. Don't worry, she wants you to be confused. The whole point of the course is for you to think deeply and reflect on your experience after each lecture. I would highly recommend taking this class, it is very unique.

Don't have much to say except she's such a sweet and caring lady. No readings for the class, just show up to lecture and take notes on the key themes to be able to write about them later. Paper was short and the class average was an A.

Heesoon is truly amazing. Originally took it for B-hum, but I genuinely enjoyed the content that she offered, and the discussion the class had. Would take another course with her!

Dr. Bai is an excellent educator and truly is an amazing person (very wise, but incredibly humble!). I did not expect much from this class, but my journey in EDUC 230 was transformational. I really love the concept of living curriculum that she implemented, and definitely look forward to taking more classes with her in the future.

Heesoon is a lovely person who prompts you to examine who you are and how you teach. She is kind and doesn't seem to be caught up in the competitive biting edge of graduate studies. However, her assigned readings were interesting but light. I received no feedback for the major assignment but still got an A. I really don't think she read it.

Very interesting course. Most people will take this course as a "GPA Booster" but will actually make you re-consider your education. Very thought provoking. Definitely made me more interested in taking another EDUC course

The course is not hard as u work hard on it. We need to discuss online but I found out that was helpful for me to understand the concepts that I am learning. Just provide some opinions and feedback on our educational issues.

Comment:
Amazing professor. She doesn't teach in a boring style like most students are used to. She teaches to educate people, to get them to think critically, and to really question the nature of true education. All her classes are awesome. She's also extremely helpful, just busy. Go to her office and talk to her, she is so caring about her students.
