Good

You really get the effort that you put in back. While the grading is slow, he is a fair grader. Everything is clarified if you just go and ask. Just work, ask questions, and review the feedback.

Awful

Do not take this course with Prof. Davis. Take this with another instructor instead. He seems to know the concepts of the work but he sucks at putting together a great teaching lecture. He gives too much instructions and a tricky questionnaire that is unnecessarily graded.

Awful

Prof. Davis' lectures and instructions are the worst. His quizzes can be tough and he's actually too verbose. Actually, just looking for the question in his ramblings is already a struggle. He's not even straightforward. Sometimes, his lectures seem to be based off his interests and not on enhancement in learning the subject. He's a terrible grader.

    inspired by the study abroad experiences I had at Augustana College as an undergraduate

    I assisted with ASU's Dublin Internship and Study Abroad program in 2015

    and I became the director of this amazing seven-week

    6-credit program in 2016 and 2017

    prior to creating and leading a 6-week program in Peru and Bolivia in 2018.\n\n A college education

    no matter how old we are when we choose to undertake it

    should broaden and enrich all of our lives

    sparking a lifetime of inner growth as well as increased interactions with the world---in myriad social

    scientific

    economic

    psychological

    and creative contexts. Our lives in \"the academy

    \" meanwhile

    should not be allowed to isolate us from the day-to-day world. Beyond listing ourselves as \"engaged\" scholars active in our communities

    we need to respect and honor the experiences and insights of non-academics as we work together to counter racism

    sexism

    and other forms of willful ignorance.
