Course Evaluations

I take pride in my course evaluations, and work diligently to improve as an educator. The following are various ratings and evaluations that I have accumulated since I started teaching. If you are interested in the full evaluations, please contact me. I've taken the weighted average of all sections I've ever taught of the course.

 

The following ratings represent a summary of evaluations of my teaching quality based on student's responses. For Pennsylvania State University, values can range from 1 to 7, with one representing "poor" and seven representing "outstanding." Response rates range from 40% to 60% in most classes.

Where My Students Are From

Each semester, I create an interactive map so students can add a pin to their hometown. It helps build some connections to other students early on. I ask them at the end of the course to add a pin to the "master map" below so that I can collect information for every semester I've taught. The results are very interesting. Feel free to zoom around and see if you know anyone who's taken a class from me.
