He grades tough and gives no explanation to his reasoning. He doesn't answer emails. He's not a reasonable person. Unprofessional conduct. He opts out of student surveys. Don't take this class, find another professor. He's horrible.

Prof. Dean. What can I say?? Had him 20 years ago at Carleton when he first got there. He's a tough marker, but all around brillant lecturer. His class was difficult but well worth taking. I've been teaching now for 17 years myself, but I still remember how good a prof he was. Cheers!!

Great guy, really funny and a laid back overall. Amazing teaching skills and reasonable grader. I didn't do well in this class because I usually skipped and don't really take an interest in History (just took it for the credit). In order to do well you need to do the readings and actually pay attention in class. Also, there's no exam!

I switched into his Early Modern Britain class a week or two late and it turned out to be my favourite class of the year. I would take another class with him in a second. Also this class didn't have an exam - I found out after.

Prof. Dean is definitely my favorite lecturer so far as I thoroughly enjoyed his class. He has a love for the material & it shows! He’s humorous & very friendly which made asking/answering questions easy. He’s a clear lecturer & answers questions well. Quizzes were harder (study what he recommends) & assignments were interesting and marked fairly.

Great class, he made it quite a bit of fun. There was no final and he was obviously very engaged with the material. Really nice guy who knew me outside of class and took the time to engage both personally and academically.

Awesome professor! Clear about what the class, takes tons of time to explain the assignments. The size of the assignments is really manageable and he loves to help his students. The class was fun and entertaining.

Brilliant man who is really passionate about what he teaches. Makes glass interesting and gives lots of aid for the assignments. However he puts a lot of weight on few assignments so if you do poorly on your 40% essay there is no second chance.

One of the best profs I've had! Very passionate and knowledgeable about material. Made the topic even more interesting and fun. Good, varied workload. Lecturing was awesome -- he was funny and used visual materials and clickers to make it interesting. Very understanding (especially about difficulties of early classes!)

Dr. Dean is a wonderful professor. He has so many witty anecdotes and is very passionate about history- in particular in public history and art history. Even two years after I took a course with him he still knows me by name. His lectures are interesting and he is a very fair marker- though he is the type of prof who you want to work hard for!

Is a very nice guy, super intelligent and quite nice. I would recommend him if he was the only prof to teach Historian's Craft...unfortunately he didnt make a lot of the classes and we got stuck with Lipsett-Rivera who is really boring...some of the lectures are completely pointless and you work for 2 minutes and are expected to sit for 2 more hour
