Really liked this prof. Very enthusiastic, super intelligent, really engaged with the subject matter. Will say when he thinks you're wrong, but only to get at a clearer point.

Awesome professor! I recommend taking first year academic writing with him. My writing improved after taking this class. He's passionate about the subject and will help you if you ask for it. Be willing to show interest and do your work.

Brian Turner was a fantastic prof, in each class you could tell how passionate he was about Rhetoric! He was engaging, consistent and fair, and always had something interesting to say. I liked that he did his own marking, and that he would tell you there would be a quiz on the readings to make you do them- and then follow through. Take his class!

Make sure you do your readings because he discusses them in class. He encourages class participation. The class was pretty tough but I loved it because I learned so much and he was very helpful! I'm glad I took this course with him.

Worth the money. But read the material he assigns B4 class. You do the work - you get the mark. Very knowledgeable and organized. Kinda old school with the transparencies but that's ok...his lessons and expectations were very clear. Good assignment turn around and fair with extensions. He provoked thought and took time to know your name.

GREAT prof, very helpful and friendly. Extremely knowledgeable and makes even the most dull material seem somewhat captivating. His academic writing course was very hard, but really helped me learn how to write for uni. A lot of tough assignments, but in the end I think it was worth it. I wish every prof could be like this. Take a class with him!

He is an excellent professor, engages the students and gets to know everyone by name. Fair marker but the course load is too heavy. Quizes almost every week. This half course should be a full course because of the work load.

I can see how some might find him arrogant but you just have to be willing to put in the time and effort in his class. He's sees it and rewards it. I also agree he might be better of teaching upper level courses as his high expectations might be intimidating for first year students.Overall good prof
