Barry is awesome, I don't know how all of you can be so cynical. Anyone that he "picked on" in class either needs to get a sense of humour. He sings, plays guitar and is a passionate and enlightening professor

Funny guy, those who dislike him must really love political correctness... cause he doesn't, which makes him refreshing to listen too, unlike all the bores who normally teach these kinds of courses.

First class: Explained we must be professional. He is the least professional man living. Barry Smit for the lose. Also, boring lectures and concepts that are old!

Comment:
At first he seems funny, but really he is just pompous and rude. The kind of guy who assigns his own journal articles as required reading. I've left class early because I'm so disgusted with the way he speaks to people. Ruined an interesting (although really easy) course with his condescending teaching style.

Great course. Loved listening to Barry lecture. He is passionate, entertaining, nice to look at, and the lectures were well structured. I would recommend this course to everyone. Did I mention he is sexy!

Comment:
He's funny but frankly CANNOT teach! He expresses the need and importance of structure... but he has none. Great guy but avoid this class if you can... its flakey and more politically-based and repetitive, mundane, and unexpected (ie in a bad way on the midterm) than anything! TA was helpful but everything else is a cloud of confusion! Run!

This guy thinks he's tarzan's mom...don't say anything in his class unless you are unfaced by criticism. And don't wear bright colours cause he picks on people. Blend in as much as possible and if he does ask, say pass. Arrogant F***.

Comment:
Oft-intimidating 'socratic method' teacher. Can give students a tough time with frequent challenging questions in a small class setting. A brilliant and truly nice guy always trying to inspire class I feel. Do the readings and prepare to learn a ton.

Sings, dances, is very funny, does anything but teach...on the whole: arrogant, unwielding, crosses the line to unacceptable comments frequently, publicly ridicules students.

Barry Smit is an arrogant **** professor who cannot move beyond himself to accept the opinions of his students or encourage dialogue b/w members of the class. Dare express any sort of alternative opinion and prepare yourself for an hour of ridicule.

a little arogant but a good prof, he's happy he sings, and dances, and forces students to use good communication skills. I now feel like Kyoto expert!
