Comment:
Christina cares for the well-being of her students and is willing to compromise. My biggest gripe is that she can be naive at times regarding human behaviour/students' interests: she did not anticipate fallout when discussing a politically controversial topic, she expected peer feedback to be unbiased even though that is a conflict of interest, etc

95+ for an A+, 80 for a B+. Ridiculously many questions for quiz. Avoid her at all cost

Comment:
During a time that was dark for me, Prof was def a shining light. The assignments were easy and the tests were easy but used as tools to LEARN the course material. I honestly feel like what I learned was invalueable AND I technically learned it on my own. She gives LOTS of resources that you constantly need to refer back to. Best prof Ive had ever.

Amazing prof with a passion for computer science. Her enthusiasm makes the class fun. Quizzes are based on things done in class so make sure to attend to pass them. Took this class for science credit but am now looking at it as a major.

I recommend taking this course and having this professor. The class discussions are very relevant and interesting. Christina engages the class and invites class participation. If you are interested in learning about the social implications of the Internet and its technology, the course material will hold your interest.

Christina Penner is such a kind and accommodating prof. I took COMP 1260 with her last winter. She really cares about the success of her students. She gave all kinds of bonus i-clicker marks for those who regularly attended class. And she does all the assignments in class.

Comment:
Super nice, easy to understand. If your taking comp1260, get the class with her. The only thing is her lectures are extremely dull and boring, especially if your taking the course to boost your gpa. She will go over the most pointless, things that one would assume are almost common sense.

She is the best professor ever. Why? Because she is caring first of all, patient, very good at teaching, has awesome style and sense of humor (a little bit geeky) which is fine. :D She's seriously such a sweetheart and I will miss her next term! :) Seriously take it with her she's the best!

She's really nice, always willing to help and clearly excited about her field of work. The course itself is quite easy as long as you do the readings and keep up with the lectures. She became sidetracked quite easily and did not follow the standardized course slides. This often made preparing for tests more work than otherwise necessary.
