Out dated material from 80s-90s, want the students to publish for her without bothering teaching well, to get A with her, publish for her any paper, does not matter which subject it is

The notes that she provides is enough to pass the class, albeit incredibly boring. If you don't attend her classes, she takes that personally. The hardest thing about this class is staying awake.

Dr. Morrissey probably means well, but she is not professional at all. Things like gossiping about the insides of the school strike and hardly ever showing up for her office hour made it very hard for students to respect her.

Truly an amazing woman! Great prof and super helpful. People who rated poorly clearly didn't bother to attend class. Even stopping by office hours helps tremendously. She really cares for her students and wants them to succeed. She even GIVES YOU THE EXAM QUESTIONS (most of the time at least)! Seriously, how can you complain?!

Very nice teacher, but doesn't verify her lessons. Often found things wrong on her slides. Also too personal, most profs don't care whether or not you're paying attention, so long as you're not making a bunch of noise. Not her.

Our answer to the last entry - Suck it up, cry baby! We heard you went crying to Ezeife ... the rest of us made the same mistake but didn't go crying to get our grade changed. Your age is showing - immature !

Comment:
What a TERRIBLE TEACHER! She docked us half our mark if we didn't copy and paste the output off our query during the SQL exam. She just went into class and gave examples, if we asked questions, she couldn't answer them. She was boring, monotone and her age definitely showed!TERRIBLE! If you can take DB with another teacher then do it! She's useless

I didn't learn anything until after the first midterm. A little too late in my opinion.

It's not enough to know your courseware and class notes word for word, you have to just keep on writing during the tests because marks are given not on content but the amount that you write. She's looking for places to dock marks. Learning is not the primary focus....grilling is. She claims there is a marking scheme...there isn't!

Comment:
I think that if you have prior experience with database you can do reasonably well in this course but her courseware is badly written and full of errors (she admits there are errors). I think this is a professor to avoid if you can. Similar to Angom. Most professors are poor at University of Windsor. That's why it's such a poorly rated University.

You should email the question to her. She always answers straight away or really soon - even late at night. I find her really helpful during office hours. I had a problem with the definitions and she really helped me to understand. And she seems really interested in and respectful of students.

Comment:
Anyone who thinks she "knows" databases is clueless. She knows her ancient courseware and nothing more. Ask her any SQL related question and she "will have to get back to you". If you can do all the examples in the CourseWare expect atleast a B+. She is an awful teacher, thankfully she consistently cuts classes short or doesnt show up for them..

Probably my favourite computer science prof. Course wasn't easy, and she demands respect. If you work hard and give her that respect, you'll do decently.

Professor is timid and nervous in nature, but is more than competent. Advice - read the courseware inside-out, over and over, and practice all questions repeatedly. She is great one-on-one during office hours. Tests are very practical - no tricks. Normalization is NOT tough - JUST PRACTICE!!

Dr. Morrissey is very nice, and very competent. She will genuinely help you if you are having trouble. Her classes are not for wusses though, study hard and you will succeed. I graduated in '99, and she adds to the fond memories.
