The best aspect of the course was the student presentations each week. The students also felt that the professor was very knowledgeable in the course topic. Students felt that the professor could have given more periodic feedback on their performance in the course. Suggested course improvements included more feedback from the professor on course work, more class discussion after the student presentations, and maintaining better control over the class during presentations. Future students should be aware that the course is mostly oral presentations given by students and that the course work is very interesting for those with a background in the sciences.
