Prof. Valeria demonstrates courtesy, equality, and mutual respect. She's very accessible after lectures for questions and concerns. I really had a positive experience with her. I transferred from the Lansdowne Campus of Camosun College and it really required extra support in my transition. I'm now able to enroll in any 50 min lec and succeed.
Would definitely recommend Prof. Kile. He clearly knows his stuff and he's very kind. Make sure to do the readings and buy the books for class because they're really interesting. If you actively participate, he'll really appreciate it and class would be much easier. You'll like this class especially if you're interested in the topic.
If you go to class, pay attention, and read a few pages of the HW, you'll easily pass this class. Just please pay attention enough so you can write what he exactly says in lecture. We didn't have any final, just a paper which was also pretty easy.
Prof. Oz is very nice and accessible outside of class. 216 is a lab class so most of your grade comes from the lab reports which is graded by TA. Apart from this, HW and final are pretty easy. I'd definitely take him again!
Prof. Corrie shouldn't be an instructor in a master's program. He's very unprofessional and discouraging especially during the time of explaining an assignment. Not even sure why Grand Canyon's still keeping him.
Although Prof. Michelle is very sympathetic and nice, she's very disorganized and assignments aren't even clear. If you're not familiar with adobe programs, you will struggle a lot with little instruction. She's very fun to be around though.
Prof. Kirk is the best prof I've ever had. I suggest you show up in all classes because they're really important and fun. The vowel dance is really meaningful but he makes it super fun. He's pretty fair and he'll call you out on your bs if needed. 10/10 would take him again if I could.
You can see that Prof. Ogen really cares about what he teaches which I really appreciate because he's so genuine. I just really wish that he could laymanize terms on complex topics because I was frequently lost during lectures.
Professor Staples is very funny, engaging and practically hands every student an A. Attendance isn't mandatory. However, if you don't want to read, just go to class. He goes pretty much line by line and reviews. Don't forget to take notes and the quizzes are from sparknotes. Midterm and final are all the quizzes combined. Also those were all online and you don't have to take them in class .
Professor McDonald is great. I learned a lot in his class. The study guides he gives out are exactly whats on the test. All you have to do is study and you'll get an A. I learned a lot in his class too.
Prof. Chanaka is overrated. He doesn't teach anything during lectures and he only marks up the obvious on his slides. Group projects are based on participation. I struggled to understand the HW. I suggest you read the textbook to pass the exams. Final isn't cumulative and is multiple choice, which isn't a good thing as well.
Prof. Christian is perfect! He creates amazing content that really makes you feel like you're learning in an in-person class but very time-flexible. There were few graded assignments, but they hold a high grading percentage. He'll make you work for your grade, but it's really worth it. Would definitely recommend taking him!
It was a huge mistake to take this class with BIO210. This required more time and effort. There were lots of reading and watching of long clips and films. There were long study guides due weekly which were really time consuming. It's actually impossible to finish it even a couple of days before. Instructions weren't clear and he often took back things he said such as extra credit opportunities.
It felt a 7-hour class with Prof. Escandon. Her exams are very hard. She will even try to confuse you. Lectures aren't even helpful for her exams. I don't even know how I passed her class. Class started with many students, but ended almost empty. I feel like she only passed me because I was one of the 10 students who stayed.
Classmates almost convinced me not to take his class, but I discovered that the trick is to go to his office hours if you need help with understanding. He'll help you with homework if you ask him questions and all you have to worry about is the exams. Would really recommend him!
