Une vrai encyclopédie humain, ses classes sont excessivement intéressante. Si vous faites tout ce qui demande et prenez de bonne note... c'est un A+ relativement facile.

Comment:
I took this class with him the past Winter. Lauriol knows his material and is very engaging on outings. He cares about students, and he'll take a keen interest in those who are visibly interesting in the material. Don't be afraid to ask for help: participation and investment are key. No mandatory textbook. Material was dry, but it's an easy A.

Took two of his classes and I loved him. He is passionate about the subject and when you show some interest he will help you even more when you have questions. Lots of labs and mini tests that are not too hard. Make sure to go to class because that is his main way of communicating information. One of my favorite university professor.

Comment:
No textbook. The course is an introduction, so a lot of it is review from Grade Six Geography - timezones, latitude, longitude - with a touch of Geology. Lauriol himself is a very nice individual, but he is honestly tired-looking; there's little engagement with the class. There are three easy labs, a few mini-tests, and a final exam. Pretty OK

I took 3 classes with him : GEG1701 , 2701 AND 3501. I really enjoy his teaching . 2701 and 3501 are field trips related classes. The labs are extremely easy because this prof will help you out alot to answer the questions. And the exams are pretty much every thing you see in class and the labs too. He grades very well for 2701 & 3501

Doesn't care if you pass or not. He is there to teach only. For a first year course, it is very challenging, with three labs, 6 mini-tests and one midterm, but still a final of 50 %. He expect you to know general knowledge for his exams! ridiculous! he want you to read one book a week (about 100 pages), as if we are studying only this course!

Comment:
Careless about his students grade, 6 mini test, a mid term and 3 lab yet the final is worth 50%. Only refers to certain people in the class (i.e had his back to half the class) Very monotoned, gets really boring writing is terrible. He knows what he's talking about. Did I mentin he's really careless about students grades

Loved this prof! He is super sweet and really cares about his students. The class is really interesting, he really knows his stuff. The final counts for 50% which is not very fait becasue there's three labs, 6 mini-tests and one midterm. I highly recommend this prof!

Comment:
His voice can get annoying and easy to fall asleep to but he's got a great sense of humour which is so subtle that you don't notice until a second after he says things. Creative assignments and fair assessments. Encourages participation from students but does not push it.

Comment:
He's kind of spacy. Really inconsistent. Expects you to know things he thinks he taught you but likely forgot. Regardless, really, really, really easy class. Just make sure you attend the lectures, because a lot of the stuff he teaches is random and not in the textbook.

Prof très connaissant dans sa matière. Lorsque tu écoutes vraiment il est très intéressant mais c'est facile de 'zoner out'. Il parle lentement et doucement ce qui rend parfois la classe longue. Mais en bref, il est un vraiment bon prof si cette matière est dans ton domaine... il est extrèment connaisant!

Comment:
He speaks very slowly and his voice kind of lulls you to sleep and doesn't seem to be interested in teaching too much. His labs are easy. He's very approachable. Sometimes he kind of pulls numbers and values off of the top of his head and in turn kind of has some issues with consistency. It's an easy mark, either way.
